The Big Idea:
As we come to know God more, our vertical relationship with Him begins to affect our horizontal relationships with people. In other words, we learn to relate to people in the way we learn to relate to Him. We learn to love like Jesus. Knowing the real Jesus means seeing the world through His eyes. Jesus presented a new model as a leader. He led with love– showed compassion, modeled forgiveness, and served His people in a way that had never been seen before.
Relating to Jesus with compassion
Relating to Jesus through forgiveness
Relating to Jesus by serving
Can you think of a time you experienced true compassion from someone? How did that impact you? How can you share that same compassion with someone around you?
Have you accepted God’s forgiveness? Are there people in your life you are struggling to forgive? What do you think often hinders people from forgiving others?
Is there something you are passionate about that could be used as a way to serve others? Share with the group. Our passions are a great place to start with finding our place to serve.
The loving nature of Jesus is how He relates to us and how we should relate to others. Pray about how God can use you to show compassion, extend forgiveness, or serve someone around you this week.Print Lesson
