STEP 4 

DISCUSSION

Share these questions in your household or with others from OBC over the phone

How have you previously understood water baptism? Has your view changed after watching the video today?

 

Why do you think water baptism is important?

Mark mentioned some parallels in Matthew's gospel between the nation of Israel (God's son) and Jesus (God's Son). Are there any other parallels that stand out to you?

What is the "new exodus"?

Take a moment to reflect/speak about what you have been saved to.

STEP 5
MISSION & PRAYER

Take a moment to think about the message you've heard. Ask God to reveal to you a greater understanding of Jesus and how He is leading you through a new exodus.

We often decide to lead our own lives instead of allowing God to lead us. During the week, ask God to show you when you are leading vs when He is leading. 

Spend some time praying for essential workers, students and the many others who have been affected by the lockdown.

Get in touch with a few people that may need some extra encouragement at this time.
