Chuck Schmidt Welcomes You!

Weekly Lesson Mailout


Sunday, November 10, 2019

Hi Everyone!
Today's lessons speak to our core beliefs as Christians- Messiah, Son of Man, Son of God, mission from the Father, sacrificial death of the Lamb of God, Resurrection, eternal life, and life more abundant now!  What could be better!  Have a listen if you have the time  (
The Bible study today was on John Chapter 10, where Jesus presents a parable showing us that: He is the good Shepherd willing to die for His sheep (us), others that are false or fake leaders only destroy and mislead, His sheep hear His voice and follow Him, and the Good Shepherd gives all who believe on Him, eternal life and abundant living now.  The Pharisees wanted him to say...'I am the Christ' (He did say that to the every day person, but not to the Pharisees),  but He would not.  He knew they were waiting to accuse Him of blasphemy but more so He wanted them to come to the conclusion that He was the Christ and salvation was standing in front of them.  He is the 'door' with which we pass, cleansed of sin by Him, and justified before the Father.  He told them in many ways that He was the resurrection!
The sermon today was on the resurrection!  How Jesus walked from the tomb on the third day and started to show His followers that He was and is the 'Risen King'!  Plenty of witnesses to this fact, and the story told here was about the two followers of Jesus going home after the holiday on Sunday, down-hearted because they expected Jesus to take Jerusalem by storm, kick out the Romans, and restore the Jewish nation to a world power.  They forgot that Jesus is King of the spirit world.  So Jesus walks along with them, they don't recognize Jesus, and Jesus teaches them all things in the Bible about himself.  Wow, what a Bible study that must have been!  After they finally recognize Jesus with the 'breaking of the bread' (which kind'a means His body broken for us...just like they just witnessed at Calvary!), He vanished from them and they ran back to Jerusalem to celebrate His resurrection with the budding new Christian church.  All will have the chance to recognize Jesus as Lord, but unfortunately, not all will accept His forgiveness and grace.  It's our job as servants of the most High, to witness and give that chance to others.
