confirmation preparation - lesson 5
"Who is Jesus?"
Let's begin with prayer in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:
Jesus, you have said, "I am the way and the truth and the life" (John 14:6). We ask you for the strength to follow you, the wisdom to know you, and the grace to live the life you wish to share with us. We want to know you. Open our hearts and minds to all that you want to show us about yourself in our time studying you today.
Now let's flip to page 36 and dive in! Read, Who Do You Think Jesus Is?
Watch the lesson 5 videos and answer the follow up questions on page 37.
