The Lamb of God
Unifying Principle (Focus)
In a world of competing religious and political values, people are not always clear that one system is of any greater value than another. How can Christians know which set of beliefs carries more weight than all others? John testifies that the Spirit bears witness that Jesus is God’s Son.
Goals for the Learners
To explore John’s account of Jesus’ baptism.
To relive emotions felt while observing or participating in a baptism.
To assess how they live out their baptismal covenant.
Lesson Challenges for the Week
Consider the vows you made or that were made in your name at baptism. How are you living out these promises? What changes might you need to make to be more faithful to these vows?
Write a journal entry concerning a baptism you have participated in or witnessed. Who was present? What happened? What was your perception of this event? How did your involvement with the sacrament of baptism enable you to grow spiritually?
Share your testimony about how God has worked and is working in your life with someone who needs to experience the love, saving grace, and forgiveness of God.
