Lesson 14: Seeking the Lost

 Jesus told three parables to help His listeners understand that He loves and cares for
everyone.

 The three parables refer to something or someone who is lost. Jesus is talking about
people who are lost.

 Lost means someone who has not yet accepted Jesus as Savior.

 The lost sheep in the parable represents people who do not yet know Jesus as their
Savior.

 The shepherd in this parable showed compassion for the lost sheep by searching for it.
In the same way, Jesus loves and cares about the people who do not believe in Him yet.

 In the parable of the lost coin, the lost coin represents a lost person.

 The lost coin is was not in its right place, and the lost person is not in a right relationship
with God.

 The woman rejoiced when she found the lost coin. When a lost person believes the
gospel and repents of sins, Christians should rejoice just as God and the angels do in
heaven.

 In the parable of the lost son, the younger son did not care about his relationship with
his father but cared only about himself.

 The younger son’s attitude changed from selfishness to repentance.

 God wants sinners to show repentance. He reconciles with them by forgiving them and
celebrates their coming into His family.

Lesson 15: Forgiving

 Adam and Eve’s sin caused separation from God for all people.

 God cannot excuse or tolerate sin because He is holy.

 Sin separates people from God and hurts their relationship with Him.

 People may try to fix this problem by balancing out their bad deeds with good works. It
is impossible.

 God made a way so that people could have a restored relationship with Him. He sent
Jesus to pay the penalty for sin.

 When people admit their sins, believe, repent, and choose Jesus as Savior and Lord, the
relationship with God is restored.

 Repent means feel sorry for something one has done and change one’s action.

 Forgiveness means the letting go of a wrong without blame or demand for a penalty.

 Jesus used the phrase seventy times seven to mean He wants His followers to always
forgive others.

 In the parable of forgiveness the first servant was upset because he owed a debt he
could never repay to the king.
 The king forgave or canceled the first servant’s large debt.
 The first servant then put his fellow servant in prison because the fellow
servant owed the first servant a debt.
 The king was angry because the first servant did not forgive or cancel the
fellow servant’s debt.
 The king turned the sinful servant over to people for punishment.

 All people, like the servant in the parable about forgiveness, owe God a debt they can
never repay because of their sin.

 The debt the second servant owed the first servant was far less than the debt the first
servant owed the king.
 The meaning of the parable is that people owe God a debt they can never repay. He
cancels the debt when they repent and accept Jesus.

 No sin is too great or big for God to forgive.

 People who have received God’s forgiveness must forgive anyone who hurts, offends, or
wrongs them.

 Two steps should be taken to restore relationships: 1) be quick to ask for forgiveness
2) be quick to extend forgiveness.
Bible Review Sheet
Lesson 16: Stewardship

 Jesus told two parables about stewardship.

 Stewardship means the careful and responsible management of possessions, abilities,


and time.

 In the parable of the talents, two of the servants use their talents to earn more and
showed they were faithful. One servant dug a hole and hid his talent.

 Faithful means consistently loyal and trustworthy.

 Just as the master gave the servants talent of money, God gives people opportunities to
use possessions, abilities, and time for Him. These are our talents.

 In the parable of the minas, the nobleman in the parable gave his servants 1 mina each.
The nobleman told the servants to use the money to earn more money until he
returned.
 When the nobleman returned, he found out that two of the servants had
obeyed and wisely used their mina to gain more money. The nobleman
praised them and gave them more responsibility.
 The third servant disobeyed; he hid his mina. The nobleman had that
servant’s mina taken away. The servant who had been a good steward by
earning the most then received that mina.

 In the same way, God rewards those who display good stewardship.

 It does not matter how much money believers have to give to God’s work. God rewards
all who give out of love for Him.

 God wants believers to use their gifts to encourage other believers and help unbelievers
learn about Him.

 Believers who have a close relationship with God want to serve and help others more
and more.

Lesson 20: Walking on Water

 Matthew, Mark, and John all share the same Bible truth: the disciples are caught in a wind
storm and Jesus walks to them on the water.

 When Jesus walked on water, the disciples were not expecting to see Him. They knew they had

saw.

that of his parents.

spiritual sight because he obeyed, had faith, and then worshipped Jesus.
