Memorize/Reflect: “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me” (John 18:37 )

Prayer Direction:  Ask God to give you courage and power to stand for His truth and laws, even when it is not popular in our world. Ask God to help you live a life that is about honoring God and following Him rather than honoring people and following the crowd.

“Live It!” Challenge – Make a Big Invite: There are many people who might avoid church and Jesus, but at Easter they might be more open to an invitation. Pray about one person who you could invite to join you for Easter services at Shoreline. Give them an Easter invitation card or a call on the phone and extend an invitation. Then, pray for their heart to be open.

Growth Group Discussion: 

      1. What are some of the cultural messages today that speak out against Jesus, Christians, and the church?
      2. What are some of the political forces at work today that seem to be working against Jesus, the gospel, and the truth of God’s Word?
      3. Read: John 18:28-40. What seemed to drive and motivate Pilate? How do you see these same motivations at work in people’s hearts today?
      4. What are ways Christians can end up going along with the crowd and what are some ways we can stand strong and resist the temptation to cave into societal pressures?
      5. Read: Luke 23:7-12. How did Herod view Jesus? What is the danger of treating Jesus like a bargaining chip in our game of life and not treating Him like the Lord and Savior that He is?
      6. What are some ways we can bow down, surrender, and follow Jesus more humbly as the Lord of the universe and our lives? What daily disciplines can we put in place that will help us surrender more to the Lordship of Jesus?
      7. Read: Mark 15:16-20. What do you see in the actions and attitudes of the soldiers? What are some of the subtle and overt ways people mock and abuse Jesus today?
      8. What does it look like when a Christian today is ashamed of the gospel? What are some ways we can show that we are not ashamed of the gospel or Jesus?

How Raising Children Shapes Our Souls

Parenting is a school for spiritual formation—and our children are our teachers. Instead of discussing how parents can change their kids, Gary Thomas turns the tables and demonstrates how God uses our kids to change us. You’ll be encouraged by stories that tell how other parents handled the challenges and difficulties of raising a godly family. Grow closer to Christ and your children as you learn to:

  • Freely enjoy your kids for who they are.
  • Build a closer, grace-based family.
  • Reduce the pressure felt for your kids to turn out perfect.
  • Manage anger and negative responses towards your child’s behavior.
  • Increase your sense of worth and respect as a parent.



Gary Thomas is a bestselling author and international speaker whose ministry brings people closer to Christ and closer to others. He unites the study of Scripture, church history, and the Christian classics to foster spiritual growth and deeper relationships within the Christian community. His unique message is designed to help you embrace the unique way that you interact with God, partner in the spiritual growth and character formation of your spouse, build a closer, grace-based family, and enjoy God with a new sense of freedom and delight.

“Voices that Mock, Lie,and Condemn”
View this week’s Sermon Notes

Memorize/Reflect: “But I say to all of you: From now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven. “ (Matthew 26:64)

Prayer Direction:  Ask God to help you see Jesus as He is and not as you want to see Him. Pray for ears to hear any time your words might dishonor Jesus. Ask God to give you courage to speak the truth about Jesus so that others will know who He really is!

“Live It!” Challenge – Big Invite: Make a list of four or five people you know and care about who are still far from Jesus. Pray about extending an invitation to each of these people to come to church at Shoreline on Easter Sunday or Monday evening. Send an e-mail invitation, or call them, or talk face-to-face. Invite them to join you to celebrate Easter and see what God does through this invitation.

Growth Group Discussion: 

      1. What are some of the ways that people today misuse the name of Jesus and make light of who He is?
      2. What are some of the lies people believe about Jesus? How do these lies keep people from drawing near to Him?
      3. Read: Matthew 26:59-63. What were the motives of the religious leaders and what do you learn about their hearts and intentions in this passage? Why do you think they saw Jesus as such a threat?
      4. Read: Matthew 26:64-65. When Jesus used the term “Son of Man” He was always talking about himself. What did Jesus claim about Himself and why does this anger and upset the religious leaders?
      5. What are some of the other things Jesus claimed about Himself (think about all of the “I Am” sayings from the gospel of John)?
      6. Read: Matthew 26:66-68. How did the religious leaders respond to Jesus’ bold claims and what did they do to Jesus? Why do you think they were so harsh?
      7. How do people mock Jesus today? How do people condemn Jesus and abuse Him in our culture?
      8. What are ways we can speak the truth of Jesus and bless His name in organic ways? What can we do, in the flow of a normal day, that will show the world that Jesus is good, loving, and real?
