The God We Can Know: Exploring the “I Am” Sayings of Jesus

 

Getting to know God means getting to know ourselves. The more we know who God is the more we know who we are. The Gospel of John records several declarations of Jesus known as the “I Am” sayings. This 7-week study is designed to explore each of those sayings and will help you find and form an answer to the most essential question in the Christian faith, “Who do you say I am?” One by one, Jesus’ statements grab our imagination, reveal more about his identity and purpose, and connect us to the God of Moses, who spoke the first “I Am.” These significant yet ordinary images (bread, light, shepherd, vine, and more) give us insightful ways to experience Jesus and point us to a God who wants to be known.

    • October 9th : “Knowing the Great I Am”

“If you want to Walk on Water”
 
In this six-session Bible study, we’ll learn how to move beyond fear to discover God’s unique calling for life!
 
Peter may have been the first one out of the boat, but Jesus’ invitation to walk on water is for us as well.  But walk on water? What does that mean?
 
If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat will help us answer Chris’ call to greater faith, power-filled deeds, and a new way of knowing how to discern God’s call, transcend fear, risk faith, manage failure, and trust God. Relating to the story in Matthew 14 to life today, teacher and bestselling author John Ortberg invites us to consider the incredible potential that awaits outside our comfort zone.
 
This Guide is filled with insights, questions for discussion, and applications that will help us connect a new way of thinking to actual deeds and a different approach to life. Out on the risky waters of faith, Jesus is waiting to meet us in ways that will change us forever, deepening our character and our trust in God.
 
Sessions include:
  1. What’s Water Walking?
  2. The Tragedy of the Unopened Gift
  3. Find Your Calling and Get Your Feet Wet!
  4. Facing Our Challenges, Conquering Our Fears
  5. Good News for Cave Dwellers
  6. Learning to Wait on Our Big God
