Week 12 – 22nd March 2015

The seven sayings of Jesus from the cross

When Jesus saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to his mother, Woman, behold your son!’ Then He said to the disciple, ‘Behold your mother!’ And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home.’ John 19:26/27 NKJV

Mary – obedience

John – intimacy

God’s New Creation – New Order

2 Cor 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold all things have become new…


How do we get into this new order of things/this family?

  1. Hearing (intimacy) and doing (obedience) the word of God Matt 12:48; Matt 7:24-27
  2. Beware of deception! Jas 1:22-24
  3. Beware of laziness/distractions  Jas 1:23-24
  4. 4. The proof of the pudding is in the eating! John 7:17: Ps 34:8
