Our series wraps up this week with a lesson on Paul. Largely regarded by Biblical scholars as the greatest writer of Jesus’ message, Paul is also regarded as one of the most, if not the most, passionate of all of His followers.
“Passion” is a key message in our final chapter.
What drives our passion? Are we passionate about our Creator or are do we simply, as our author says, carry around our Christian beliefs in a duffel bag, pulling out those beliefs when we need them….and storing them away when we don’t.
There’s a gap for some between a larger God and us. How can we close that gap?
In this week’s reading you’ll see a story about Andre Agassi, speaking at the hall of fame induction of his wife, Steffi Graf. In those remarks, Agassi talks about a roof built many years ago, before airplanes were even invented. Why did the roof-makers not take shortcuts when there was not the ability to stand above the roof?
We’ll discuss those answers and more this week under the context of Paul’s passion.
Also, the author has a wonderful summary of all ten characters at the end of this week’s reading. We’ll wrap up our book this week using that summary as a guide.
Gather at 7:30 am at The Cornwell Center. We’ll start the lesson at 7:45 am. Mike leads us this week.
