My Next Steps
Question to Ponder: Have you ever had an “aha!” moment personally in your life where you went from thinking, “What are you doing, God?” to thinking “You have done all things well, God!”
Treasure to Share: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
A Challenge to Accept: Jesus opened the ears of a deaf man to be able to hear all the people saying, “Jesus has done all things well!” Are you making the most of every opportunity to hear about what Jesus has also done well for you? Take a look at p. 13 and see if you can fit Pastor Ben’s upcoming Bible 101 class into your schedule. Better yet, do you have a friend you could bring along to meet Jesus in his word?
