MONDAY'S HERE What are you going to do with the rest of your life? God may, of course, call you to go to the ends of the earth, but he's just as likely to send you across the room. In preaching through Matthew 10, we've noticed a simple model for figuring out what comes next:
- See what Jesus sees.
- Feel what Jesus feels.
- Pray what Jesus prays.
- Receive what Jesus gives.
- Say what Jesus said.
- Do what Jesus did.
So, what about you? What are seeing as you walk through your day and week? How might God invite you, and empower you, to announce and demonstrate the reign of his kingdom in the places you find yourself?

CHILDREN'S SUNDAY SCHOOL CONNECTING POINT
This session was a new one for most boys and girls. Recall the last time you sat and read the Book of Leviticus. What does it mean? Why did God give all these rules? God gave rules for sacrifice to show people how to worship Him and how to be forgiven of the sin they had committed. Why did God require a sacrifice of blood? Simply, God is holy and because of that His forgiveness requires a sacrifice. The Book of Romans teaches us that the penalty for sin is death. The sacrifice offered stood instead for the one who had sinned.
The ultimate example of a substitution for sin is of course, Jesus Christ. Christ died on the cross for the sins of all. Christ died so that sinners wouldn’t have to die for their sin. The rules of Leviticus were given to help people know they could not live in right relationship with God apart from sacrifice. We today are free from following the rules of sacrifice because we trust in Jesus who perfectly obeyed the law. Our faith in Christ is what cleanses us from the sin in our lives.
