. IT’S COMMON GROUND! J. SERIES | The Good Shepherd: Session 6 John 12.1-8 . What is worship? . Church campus? Stage lights? Instruments? Vocalists? Music? Soft, padded prayer with a worship leader? Altar call? . While all of these things can play a part, worship is something so much more. Personal. Central. Beautiful. . Worship is the face of our heart turned toward our Lord. . It is the face of our heart beholding Him—His power and majesty. Admiring His splendor and beauty. Receiving His outpour of graces and praising His infinite mercies. . This week we see a remarkable act of worship. It is costly. It is beautiful. It is deeply personal. It gives us pause and prompts us to ask, “how do I worship Jesus? How does the perfume of my life surround Him with praise?” . I love your hearts! Bryan . SUPPER: Albany Mall Food Court . https://www.gbyouth.org/events/2018/9/26/common-ground . #CommonGround
JOHN 12.1-8 . 12 Six days before the Passover, Jesus therefore came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. 2 So they gave a dinner for him there. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those reclining with him at table. 3 Mary therefore took a pound[a] of expensive ointment made from pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. 4 But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (he who was about to betray him), said, 5 “Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii[b] and given to the poor?” 6 He said this, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief, and having charge of the moneybag he used to help himself to what was put into it. 7 Jesus said, “Leave her alone, so that she may keep it[c] for the day of my burial. 8 For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me.” . ❤️ POST YOUR QUESTIONS!
. IT’S COMMON GROUND! J. SERIES | The Good Shepherd: Session 4 John 11 . What do you expect from God? . Hold on. Don’t jump with an answer. Think on that for a moment, maybe even a while—a long while. How you answer that question might just reveal how you really picture Him. . How you believe in Him. Trust Him. . Or struggle to. . As we continue through the account of Jesus raising Lazarus, we continue to experience the tension. The tension between expectation and disappointment. Faith and doubt. Hope and despair. . Life and death. . As we look upon this story, we are not just at the tomb. We are in the tomb. Wrapped in our sin. Dead in our trespasses. Only God can forgive our sins. Only He can fill our lungs and call us forth to new life. Unbound and let go! . Are you alive? . I love your hearts! Bryan .

. IT’S COMMON GROUND! J. SERIES | THE GOOD SHEPHERD: Session 3 John 11.1-17 . Trust. . It is the essence of relationship. Friendship. . Think about your BFF. This is the person who is closest to your heart. The person you confide in. The person you TRUST most with your secrets. The person you TRUST will be there in your most difficult times. . But what if they’re not. They’re not there when you need them the most? You call, and it goes directly to voicemail. You text and there is no reply. . What would you think? . This week we will look at a story that begins just like this. Mary and Martha are very close to Jesus. BFF’s—no doubt. But when they need Him the most, when they are in their darkest hour, He delays. He doesn’t (immediately) come. . Their brother is sick. And He dies. . What do we make of this? How do we understand God’s love when He doesn’t seem to be coming through? How do we trust God to be, well, God? . SUPPER FOLLOWS OFF-CAMPUS at Zaxby’s on Pointe North Boulevard . I love your hearts! Bryan
