Beginning with Christ
What does it mean to trust someone? This
initial activity, a trust fall, will help you to better understand what it means to place
absolute trust in another. Organize yourselves into groups of five. Form a circle with one
person in the middle. With eyes closed, the person in the middle should slowly
"fall" in whatever direction he chooses. It is the groups job to keep him
from falling to the floor. After several falls, switch positions and continue until
everyone has had a turn in the middle.

Why or why not? (v.8)

What does it mean to
Where does eternal life come from? (v.11)
How does one become a child of God?
What are the two kinds of people? (v.12)
Can we be confident of having eternal life?
This train diagram illustrates the relationship among fact (God and His
Word), faith (our trust in god and His Word), and feeling (the
result of our faith and obedience). The train will run with or without the caboose, and
the caboose cannot pull the train. We as Christians do not depend on feelings or emotions,
but we place our faith (trust) in the trustworthiness of God and the promises of His Word.
Lord Jesus, I want to
know You personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my
life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving me of my sins and
giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person
You want me to be.
