Scripture: John 14:6
Discussion: Jesus described Himself as “the way, and the truth, and the life” and explained that “no one comes to the Father except through me.” Explain how each term (way, truth, life) applies to Jesus. Think, in particular, of how you would explain it to an unbeliever.
Song: “You Alone Can Rescue” by Jonas Myrin & Matt Redman
Scripture: John 10:1-18
Discussion: How would you explain the concept that Jesus is “the door”? Who are the thieves and robbers (v. 8), and who is “the thief” (v. 10)? Obviously, the difference between plural and singular terms show us there is likely a difference between the group of thieves and robbers and the thief. Also, what makes Jesus a “good shepherd” and different from a “hired hand” (v. 11-18)?
Song: “Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us” by Dorothy A. Thrupp & William B. Bradbury
Scripture: Matthew 7:13-14; Luke 13:22-23
Discussion: Both of these passages describe those who are saved as few in number. Why do you think this is the case? How should this motivate us in our evangelism? What does this reveal about the reality of lost church members?
