In this passage of God’s Word, we see some people cautioning Jesus about a Herod wanting to kill Jesus. Jesus was being personally attacked. By taking a look at Jesus’ response, we can learn how to respond when we are personally attacked.
1. Stay _________
Luke 13:32, 1 Tim. 2:2, 1 Thess. 4:11, Rom. 12:18, Phil. 4:5-9
2. Your __________
Luke 13:33, 2 Pet. 1:10, 2 Tim. 1:9, Heb. 3:1, Eph. 4:1
3. How God ________ you

4. ­­______ people towards Christ
Luke 13:35, 2 Tim. 4:2, Rom. 10:1
Reflection Questions

1. How do you typically respond when you feel like someone is personally attacking you? Do you try and fight back? Do you try and reason with them? However you typically respond, how does it usually work out for you?
2. Which one the 4 takeaways from Jesus’ interaction with the Pharisees do you think you need to work on the most? How will this help you to respond in a more God-honoring way when someone is personally attacking you? How can you remember to do that and who can keep you accountable to that?
3. If you applied your major takeaway to your life, and allowed that to affect how you respond when someone is personally attacking you, how do you think it could lead people towards Christ better?

On Friday, Oct. 22nd, we are having a fall fun event for the whole family. This will give everyone an opportunity to fellowship together and there will be fun, fall things for the kids to do. We are also looking for people who are interested in decorating their car trunks and handing out candy.
Open Sorting Hour at the Foster Closet
Want to help out at the foster closet but can’t commit to helping regularly? That’s ok! Every Friday from 12:30-1:30 is an open sorting hour. If you’d like to help during the open sorting hour, please text Tammi Fisher at (216) 526-9974.
We believe that our faith grows best when we surround ourselves with other believers. That’s why we encourage everyone to be a part of one of our groups, where we can intentionally share our lives with one another. There is a Sunday School group meeting on Sunday mornings before Service at 9:30. Our small groups are also in the process of starting for the fall. If you would like to be a part of one, please reach out to Pastor Josh.
