Blessings In Christ • The Purpose of the lesson is to get us to appreciate some of the blessings we have in Jesus Christ. • Before spiritual blessings can be realized, we must see how to get into Christ • Once in Christ we learn to share those blessings with others.

Jesus said: • I am the door - the entrance • I am the light – showing the way • I am the shepherd – to guide and protect • I am the way – the pathway to heaven • I am from above – God sent • I am with the Father – In agreement with God • I am He – the prophesied Messiah • I am the resurrection – the new hope • I am the bread of Life – spiritual food
