12 Repentance Is a Blessing

At the beginning of today's lesson I am going to play the song Come to Jesus  by Kenneth Cope and ask students what they think the lesson again. We may listen again to see what lyrics and scriptures stand out to them particularly as touching on the topic of repentance.

Also, I will show this picture of Jesus in Gethsemane as an image to support our discussion of how Jesus took our sins upon him when he prayed to the Father in Gethsemane.

Matthew 26:38-44

 38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
 39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
 40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
 41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
 42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
 43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
 44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
Luke 22:40-46

40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.
 41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
 42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
 43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.
 44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
 45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,
 46 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

And finally... Steps of Repentance Handout

I am going to print out this slide small as a handout to remind the students of the steps of repentance that we have discussed in the lesson:
