We are starting a new series tomorrow night called, “Jesus and the Tough Times.” We are spending our time really talking about where the Lord is when things go wrong. It was a great discussion about some hard things.
This week, the lesson is entitled “The God Who Listens” and it focuses on understanding that when we experience tough times, we can and should express their emotions to God in real, honest ways.
We will look at the following Scripture passages:
This is the recounting of how Jesus talked to God in the Garden right before He was arrested. It’s a powerful example of how Jesus called, cried and was open with the Father about how He was feeling.
Next Steps . . .
Here are some of the questions you may want to be processing for the rest of the week..
- Do you feel like that it is easy or hard for you to be honest with God about what you’re feeling?
- Do you feel like hearing more about the way Jesus was honest with God might be helpful? Why or why not?
- What are you going to do in trying to be more honest with God about the way you are feeling about life?
