“Who is Jesus?”
Reflect on What You’ve Heard
- How would you describe Jesus (i.e. kind, meek, fierce, etc.)
- What is a characteristic of Jesus that is most surprising to you?
- If you stood in Jesus’ office today what would He say about the way you are living your life?
- Where do you need to get more serious in following Jesus?
Pray it Out
