We hope you will be able to join us this Sunday for our Bible Study:
"A Cross to be Carried"
Our focus continues in the Gospel of John 19:13-22
To aid in your study, please also review the following passages:
2 Cor 5:21
2 Cor 12:9
2 Tim 2:12
A Cross is a crisis. It has been said that Jesus will drive you to your knees but a cross will drive your face to the ground.
Jesus said that his disciples will take up their cross - which makes the participant a volunteer - not a subject. So, do you have a cross to bear? Do you know of Christians who don't have a cross? What is the purpose of the cross in our lives? How does a cross impact our lives?
Looking forward to seeing you for dinner or on the internet!

Gospel of John Bible Study Overview:
What was the purpose of John's Gospel account? You can discover John's Holy Spirit directed goal by first reading John 20:30.
Essentially John stated that he wished to bring readers to faith/belief that Jesus was the Christ and the Son of God. But what is faith and belief? It is more than an intellectual acceptance of the historic life of Jesus. Instead our faith and belief in Christ is to be transformational. We are to be transformed by the presence of Jesus our Savior and Creator in our lives and reject being controlled by the things the world values and the yearning of our appetites and shallow desires.
In the minds of many Jews and Gentiles, a carpenter from Nazareth seemed like an unlikely candidate for the role of Messiah. Then again many of our friends, family and neighbors share that same mindset today!
