Through It All
The word amateur comes from the Latin meaning lover. An amateur in sports is one who participates for the love of the game, not for financial gain. The Ultimate Journey is for amateurs, people who love God and want to bear fruit by/through and for Him. But if it is to be so, they are all ours through the gospel. Thinking It Through Every moment of the spiritual life is one of unmeasured need and superhuman demands, and the supply of enabling power and grace must be constantly received and employed.

~Lewis Sperry Chafer

Putting on Christ is not one among many jobs a Christian has to do; and it is not a sort of special exercise for the top class. It is the whole of Christianity.

~C.S. Lewis

Not infrequently, we choose our goals to prove our importance.

~Keith Huntenlocker ~Unknown

Salvation is not something we ACHIEVE, but RECEIVE.

LOOKING AHEAD The Ultimate Journey Outward Bound Talk about an Ultimate Journey for three years the disciples followed Jesus everywhere He went and had front-row seats for His teaching and miracles. Throughout Galilee and Jerusalem they traveled with Him on a literal journey, but each was also on a personal journey of his own. History tells us that by the end of their journeys these men were well on their way to changing the world for God, but they didnt start out that way. At times they were startlingly childlike, and had to grow through the stages of maturity just like anyone else. But they had a master Teacher who saved one of His most powerful lessons for their last night together before His death. Looking It Up Read the following passages. For each, look for clues to help you asses where you think the disciples may have been in their growth (infant, child, young adult, parent): o Mark 8:27-33 o Luke 9:12-17 o Luke 9:46-48. Read John 13:1-15 and then answer the following questions: o o What lesson is Jesus particularly interested that the disciples learn? What can we learn about being a spiritual parent from the way Jesus engaged the disciples in this passage? What do verses 6-9 reveal to us about where Peter was in his growth? How did Jesus interaction with him help Peter mature? Do you think it is significant that Jesus taught the disciples this particular lesson on His last night with Him? Why? Do you struggle to follow Jesus example in this passage? Why or why not?
