Explore the Bible: A Fresh Start

The question in this image is how I introduce this week's Explore the Bible session: A Fresh Start. We all know that when we mess up we can’t go back and undo what was done, but we can make a fresh start from where we are that will lead us to a better ending.

Noah experienced this first hand. Man could not undo the path he took when Adam and Eve chose to sin. The path did not lead man to become more like God but to become less and less like God. But, God provided an opportunity for a fresh start for His creation through His faithful servant, Noah. This fresh start and the accompanying covenant pointed toward the future and God's ultimate plan of providing salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Here are some suggestions for leading this session:
  • PowerPoint: There are PowerPoint slides available that include the image above. Click to Preview and Download.
  • You have a great opportunity to share the gospel during this session. Don't miss this opportunity to challenge your group to consider if they need to respond to the gospel.
  • You have a great opportunity also to challenge believers to examine how they have responded to God through worship and sacrifice for the gift of salvation.
I pray this session will impact you and your group as you share the grace and plan of God to provide man with a fresh start!
