MAY 28, 2017 LESSON PLAN
Dear Explore His Word class,
This Sunday will be our last meeting before the summer break.
As we wrap up our “Basic Gospel 101” sessions, I would like for us to look at the 7th chapter of Matthew.
This chapter is the last one-third of Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount. Remember, Jesus is directing His teaching primarily to would-be followers (aka “disciples”). If we seriously consider ourselves as Jesus-followers (here’s another aka, “Christians”) we should to be paying strict attention!
Matthew chapter 7 is NOT a “warm fuzzy” part of God’s Word!
As you read and prepare for class, please take note of the following words and phrases:
“this is the Law and the Prophets”
“depart from ME”
“hears these sayings of MINE and does not do them”
“And great was its fall”
Don’t overlook the last verse in this chapter, verse 29. “He taught them as one having authority….”
Does this sound like “gentle Jesus, meek and mild?”
Please come Sunday, and let’s take an in-depth look at this startling chapter.
We’ll meet at 9:45 in the Pfrangle Hall parlor. Bring your Bibles, and be wearing your “thinking caps”.
See you then!
In His Matchless Love, Ron and Sue

OUR MISSION IS HELPING PEOPLE FIND THEIR WAY BACK TO GOD
We’ve seen the transformation hundreds of times – people who came to us full of doubt and uncertainty become secure in the knowledge of their rightful place in God’s great kingdom. The change may start slowly – in a Bible Study class or choir participation, perhaps – but once it begins, it picks up speed. The good works, shared experiences, time spent in prayer – all bring us closer to our highest calling.
Take the first step toward personal renewal – join us for services this weekend!
