contemporaneous notes

5th Sunday in Lent

“The Protection of the Trinity””

-         Mystery Box – pocket knife, with three blades.
-         This knife reminds me of the Trinity
o   Father
o   Son
o   Holy Spirit

-         They work together
o   Holy Spirit inspires us to do good
o   Jesus saves us
o   God created us

-         A knife can protect us too
o   three choices of blades

-         We are protected by God
o   God created us
o   God’s Word protects us,
o   Showing us what to do and what not to do
-         We are protected by Jesus
o   Jesus protects us from sin
o   We are made righteous
o   He walks with us,
o   He goes before us
-         We are protected by the Holy Spirit
o   The Holy Spirit reminds us of god
o   We hear God’s voice
-         We know God will warn us to walk away from danger.

-         We can rely on the Trinity
o   God protects us
o   God is always with us
o   God will never leave us

-         Prayer
