Isn’t CS Lewis Great!?

Every now and then, in this crazy society we live, I think we need reminding of this:

“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronising nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”

C.S. Lewis

Those Magi – A Study

A study based on Misha’s sermon: Which Star Are You Following?

  1. What lessons can we learn from the Magi and their persistence to find Jesus. (matt 2 v 9)
  2. How can Simeon and Anna be an example to us today. ( Luke 3 v 25-38)
  3. Why is important to be constantly filled with the Holy Spirit and to be in fellowship with God and each other. (matt 25 v 1 -12)
  4. How can we convey the true meaning of Nativity to our unsaved loved ones and friends .
  5. Discuss as a group how Jesus second coming will have much in common with His first, the state of the world, Godlessness and other situations we see in the world at this time.
