Growing in knowledge

  • Discuss the necessity of knowledge of the Old Testament in properly understanding the New.
  • People are always in the “wilderness” needing to be saved by God.  Some will come to God for life, others will remain, wander and die? What makes the difference?

Feeling life deeply

  • How do you feel about the term Shepherd? What comes to mind when you hear this word?  What about King? Which do you sense you need more often?

Living  with courage

  • Where do you need the Shepherds guidance?
  • Where do you need the King to rule? What areas of life need to be brought under his control?
