Then, Jesus helped her to understand God and how to worship God.
Then she understood what God is looking for. (John 6:35)

Day 2 – afternoon (Luke 19:1-10)

(2) Now let’s read this: (1 Corinthians 13:5-6)
“Love is not easily angered.
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.”

This is how God loves.
God is not easily angered.
God keeps no record of wrongs.
God loves to forgive people.
Why is that?
Because when people experience God’s forgiveness, they can have a new chance in life.
Then being forgiven, they can truly follow Jesus.
So, God loves to forgive.

(3) For example, Jesus helps this person to experience God’s forgiveness.
His name is Zacchaeus.
Have you heard about him?
Once upon a time, he was a well known sinner in town.

But Jesus went to his house and ate with him and had fun with him.
Jesus was kind to him.
Jesus showed him how much God loves him.
Jesus showed him how to experience God’s forgiveness.
Jesus showed him how God is ready to forgive him.

Then this person relaxed enough to experience God’s kindness.
He understood that God is ready to forgive him.
He understood that God wanted him to live a wonderful life.
He understood that God can take care of him and provide what he needs.

(3) So, Zacchaeus decided to live for God.
Then, he started to give money to the poor.
Why did he do that?
You will learn more about that today.

(3) Now what does this coin say?

Day 3 – morning (Mark 14:27—16:20; Luke 22:47—24:53; John 21:15-17)

(2) Now let’s read this together: (1 Corinthians 13:7-8)7
“Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always pe7rseveres.
Love never fails.”

We are talking the fact that God is love.
How does God love?
God protects.
God trusts.
God hopes.
God perseveres.
Then God always win, because God is love.

That is how Jesus loves, too.
Jesus protects, trusts, hopes, and perseveres.
(3) Then Jesus said something like this: (John 13:34-35)
“I love you.
I can help you love one another.”

(3) Again love always wins.
And those who love always win.
That is why Jesus wants us to love one another because love always wins.

Now then here is an example of how love always wins.
Jesus loved people.
(3) But some people misunderstood Jesus and killed him.
So, Jesus has died.
But Jesus loved them.
So Jesus died for them.
But because Jesus loves them this much, Jesus cannot be dead forever.
This kind of love always wins.
(3) So, Jesus was raised from the dead, because love always win.

Then, Jesus proves that those who love like him live forever.
And those who love like Jesus will live forever.
In this way, Jesus showed that how love always wins.

Now Jesus lives forever, because Jesus loves you forever.
Jesus loves you forever because Jesus lives forever.
If you love him, you will also live forever. (John 11:25)

So, let’s pray that Jesus may help us love him and people.
Let’s pray that Jesus may help us love one another.

Jesus, you are the giver of life, and the giver of love.
You can help us to love like you.
You can help us to love one another.

You can also help us to help people to learn about you.
So, help us communicate your true and eternal life so that everyone may live forever.
Help people to understand that you died on the cross for them and you have forgiven their sins and their mistakes.
You died for them, so that they might not die but live forever with you.
Help them to love you and your people.
Help them to love one another in your name so that they can have eternal life through you.
In Jesus name, we pray amen.
