November 26 - Session Nine

For Here:
Take a look at what John has to say about Jesus coming into the world. The verses are included below. Then consider the questions that follow.
John 1:10-13 (NLT)
He came into the world he created, but the world didn't recognize him. He came to his own people, and even they rejected him. But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn-not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.

For reflection:
1. Why do you think the world didn't recognize Jesus?
2. What do you think John means by saying "become children of God"?
3. What is the difference in the births John is referring to?
4. What is teh best gift you have ever given or received?

To Go:
Take some time this week to read and reflect on the following verses and consider what they say about birth and new birth:
John 3:3-8
1 Peter 1:3-5
1 John 4:7-9
2 Corinthians 5:17

Be blessed!
