All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
Jesus was committed to truth. He revealed the truth about himself, about the Father in heaven, about the world, sin, eternal life and what it means to live an abundant life. And your closest friends are the ones who will tell you the truth about yourself. Jesus is that kind of friend. He reveals your identity, makes sense of your history, exposes your needs and points you toward your destiny. When we meet Jesus the revealer, we discover truth--and ourselves.
The Jesus 101 series engages both mind and heart. The sessions bring a fresh perspective on who Jesus is, how he interacted with people in Scripture and how he relates to us. The discussion questions are designed particularly to help a group to learn from each other but also provide an interesting context for individual reflection. As you discover the ways Jesus fulfills our lives, you may fall in love with him again--or for the first time.
