Reflection 1

Randy Roberts    The Sermon

Randy mentions that one of Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is to “start with the end in mind.” Where do you want to be with your walk with God?

Randy mentions that if we spent more time with the “black words” of the gospels, there is a great deal that we would learn, particularly about how people responded to Jesus. The Bible says that the people who heard the Sermon on the Mount were “amazed.” What other reactions to Jesus can you think of from the Bible, and what do these tell us about Jesus?

Describe your response to your own first encounter with Jesus.
