Have you ever participated in one of these games at a retreat called a Trust Fall? You stand in the middle of a circle of people, they blindfold you, and then they say, “Now, without moving your feet, just let yourself fall. Keep your body stiff. Let yourself fall, and we’ll catch you.” Have you ever been in one of those? It’s a trust exercise.


As you prepare for our weekly gathering on May 15th, please read John 4:43-54. See a man participate in a trust exercise. See a man, who is in crisis, shift his weight. Lose his center of gravity. Commit to Jesus. Ask yourself these question:


  • How does John tip you off that he thinks Galilee is significant? Trace the biblical significance of Galilee. Look up Joshua 20:1-9; 1 Kings 9:10-13; Isa. 9:1-2.
  • Read John 4:48. Do you think Jesus needs a refresher in “Pastoral Care?"
  • According to John 4:50, what is the essence of true faith?
  • Compare and contrast the man’s faith at the beginning and at the end of the story. How does his faith grow?

See you Sunday!
