The Making of Disciples

John 4:28-36

 

 

"28 So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, 29 “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” 30 They went out of the town and were coming to Him.31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging Him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” 32 But He said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” 33 So the disciples were saying to one another, “No one brought Him anything to eat, did he?” 34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work. 35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest. 36 Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together” (John 4:28-36, ESV)

LIFEGROUP NOTES  Week 9 - Killing Hostility!

 

Sunday’s message discussed God’s wrath and our Reconciliation. Specifically, Jesus’ purpose to face God’s wrath on our behalf.  In doing this Jesus kills the hostility between us and God. Jesus came to rescue, reconcile, and ultimately restore us from God’s wrath toward sin.  We have done a variation of this study before. It is one of my favorite ways to look at Wrath and Reconciliation. Let’s look today at the following questions:

  1. What have we been rescued from?

  2. How have we been reconciled?

 

Rescued: Turn to and read Matt. 26.36-46 as a group.

  1. In v39 Jesus asks for this cup to ‘pass from me’. What is Jesus referring to with this analogy?

  2. Jesus continues this analogy in v42 saying, that if it is GOD’s will, He will drink the cup.  What does Jesus mean when he says that he will drink the cup (of God’s wrath)?

  3. JESUS takes his inner three (Peter, James, and John) and tells them that He is sorrowful and troubled in v37-38. What do we learn from v39 that has JESUS so sorrowful and troubled?

  4. So, it is obvious that Jesus is anticipating the Wrath of GOD and that He is very troubled as a result.  What does it say about the disciples that they are sleeping when JESUS returns?

Reconciled:

 

5 . The Wrath of GOD is something to be feared. But there is great news for those who decided to put their faith in JESUS CHRIST. As a group, turn to John 1.29 and read what the Apostle John writes about John the Baptist’s view of JESUS CHRIST. John the Baptist called Jesus the “Lamb of GOD” who would take away the sins of the world. How does this verse highlight our redemption?

 

Impact Statement

Christ has rescued, reconciled, and restored us; but he has done so to a very different state than we have ever experienced before.  Through Christ, we are kept secure! He is the only one capable of such a feat. A human can rescue us from physical death, but they have no authority over our spiritual state--Christ does!
