Agape Club
Here at Agape Club, every lunch is a surprise! We always hang with friends and chill with some tunes. But we might also have friendly faces that come to visit and talk, service projects to plan and carry out, or opportunites to encourage teachers, staff, and other students.

The purpose of the Agape Club is to help Christian students identify and fellowship with other students. It is designed to give all students who attend club functions,  Christians and non-Christian alike, an opportunity for social interaction, values clarifiation, and encouragement.

Agape Club Meeting

April 2, 2013    Second Lunch

God is with you always!  (Presented by Yulissa Navarro)

 

Daniel 3:10-25


10 You, O king, have made a decree that everyone who hears the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, shall fall down and worship the gold image; 11 and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. 12 There are certain Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego; these men, O king, have not paid due regard to you. They do not serve your gods or worship the gold image which you have set up.”

13 Then Nebuchadnezzar, in rage and fury, gave the command to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. So they brought these men before the king. 14 Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the gold image which I have set up? 15 Now if you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, and you fall down and worship the image which I have made, good! But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?”

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 17 If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. 18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”

19 Then Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury, and the expression on his face changed toward Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. He spoke and commanded that they heat the furnace seven times more than it was usually heated. 20 And he commanded certain mighty men of valor who were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, and cast them into the burning fiery furnace. 21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their trousers, their turbans, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 22 Therefore, because the king’s command was urgent, and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame of the fire killed those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. 23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?”

They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”

25 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”


 

Deut. 31:6    Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

 

 

  1.  Why were Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego thrown into the fiery furnace?
  2. If you were them, would you worship other gods so so you wouldn’t die?  Why?
  3. How much hotter was the fiery furnace than usually?
  4. Who was the fourth man in the furnace?
  5. Explain an experience where you had conviction and stood up for what’ s right?
  6. Give an example of when you could have had conviction, but didn’t?

 

Goal for next time:  Stand up for what’s right:  Have conviction, and remember God is with you no matter what.

 

Prayer requests:

 

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.  Help us stand up for what is right!

 

Next Time:  Kendric Illacas will be giving the lesson.

Verses of Bible Study

1st Corinthians 1:26-2:5

Background:

          Paul is writing to church at Corinth.  He acknowledges that he was not wise or powerful by worldly standards and that he came to Corinth feeling unsure and not ready to preach the gospel.  He says that his words weren’t powerful; he wasn’t eloquent; he wasn’t even sure of his own faith.  He had to rely on the Spirit’s power to speak to the people and share’s God’s word.

1 Corinthians 1:26-2:5

New International Version (NIV)

26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”

2 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.”

1)    Why would God choose to enlist the leadership of:

a.     Humble people…not of noble birth?

b.    Foolish things and people?

c.     Weak?

d.    Lowly things?

 

2)   What is boasting behavior?

 

3)   Should we be boasting about our own accomplishments?  Explain.

 

4)   What does it mean to “boast in the Lord”?

 

5)   Do you feel unsure sometimes about your “walk” with the Lord?  Explain.

 

6)   If God has chosen the lowly, humble, weak, and unprepared, can he use a middle school student?

 

7)   Application:

a.     Do you feel God’s power in your life? 

b.    Do you live with the assurance of God’s power in your life? 

c.     Do you share God’s power with others? 

d.    Do others see God’s power through you?

 

Prayer Requests:

1)  Help us to feel God’s power in our lives.

2)  Help us to live God’s power in our lives.

3)  Help us to share God’s power in our lives with others.

4)  May the Holy Spirit give us the courage, opportunities, and the words to share God’s power with others!!!

Matthew 25:14-30

English Standard Version (ESV)

The Parable of the Talents


14 “For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants[a] and entrusted to them his property. 15 To one he gave five talents,[b] to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. 16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. 17 So also he who had the two talents made two talents more. 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master's money. 19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.’ 21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good andfaithful servant.[c] You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter intothe joy of your master.’ 22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.’ 23 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 24 He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, 25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.’ 26 But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? 27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. 28 So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 30 And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


1.   Have you ever been given a large responsibility?

2.   When the master left, who did did he give some money to?

3.   What did he ask them to do with it?

4.   How does one make money grow?  What kind of risk does that take?

5.   When he returned what happened?

6.   Why do you thing Jesus told this parable to the people?

7.   Think of something that you consider a talent?

8.   How can you use that talent for God?

9.   What makes you “uncomfortable” about using your talents for God?

10.  Name some people in the Bible who used their talents to honor God.

 

Goal for the month:  Discover one talent God has given you, and identify a way to use it for Him.

Verses of the Day:

Matthew 18: 21-35

Background:

          The disciples were asking Jesus a series of questions to which Jesus was providing answers.  Peter, in his usual impulsive way, asked Jesus how many times he should forgive another person.  Rabbinic teaching at the time said that a man must forgive his brother three times.  Peter anticipated that his suggestions of seven times would be particularly forgiving and gracious.  He was eager to earn Jesus’ praise by suggesting this number.  Peter is surprised by Jesus’ response to his well-intended question: 

21  Then Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him?  Up to seven times?”

22  Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.

23  For this reason, the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a certain king who wished settle accounts with his slaves.

24  An when he had begun to settle them, there was brought to him one who owed ten thousand talents.

25  But since he did not have the means to repay, his lord commanded him to be sold, along with his wife and children and all that he had, and repayment to be made.

26  The slave therefore falling down, prostrated himself before him saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will repay you everything.’

27  And the lord of that slave felt compassion and released him and forgave him the debt.

28  But the slave went out an found one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and he seized him and began to choke him saying, ‘Pay back what you owe.’

29  So his fellow slave fell down and began to entreat him saying, ‘Have patience with me and I will repay you.’

30  The slave was unwilling however, and threw his fellow slave in prison until he should pay back what he owed.

31  So when his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were deeply grieved and came and reported to their lord all that had happened.

32  The summoning the slave to him, the lord said, ‘You wicked slave; I forgave you all that debt because you entreated me.

33  Should you not have had mercy on your fellow slave just as I had mercy on you?’

34  And this lord, moved with anger, handed him over to the torturers until he was paid all that he was owed him.

35  So shall My heavenly Father also do to you if each of you does not forgive his brother from his heart.”

 

Questions:

1)    In Matthew 16, Jesus told Peter that He would build the “church” using Peter as a key participant in the process.  He told Peter that He would give Peter the “…keys to the Kingdom of Heaven…”  Why would Peter make such a suggestion to Jesus in verse 18 about forgiving someone seven times?

 

 

2)   What was Jesus’ response to Peter’s question and why do you think Peter would have been surprised?

 

 

3)   Jesus tells a story (parable) about a ruler who forgives the debt of his slave.  Who is the ruler and who is the slave?

 

 

4)   Is it “fair” of the ruler to forgive the slave?  Explain your answer.

 

 

5)   Jesus went on in the story telling about the slave not forgiving the debt of a fellow slave.  Why didn’t the slave forgive his fellow slave?

 

 

6)   The ruler then summons the original slave and challenges him how?

 

 

7)   Jesus then compares the situation to God and us.  What is the clear message?

 

 

8)   What is Grace?  Grace is “unmerited favor.”  What does that mean?

 

 

9)   Application:

a.    We live in a world of fairness…what do your parents mean when they say “life isn’t fair”?

b.    Do you forgive others who wrong you?

c.    Do you hold a grudge?

d.    Can you give grace to others?

e.    Are you willing to forgive and truly forget?

Chris Tomlin – Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)
From the album – Until The Morning

Chorus:
Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine

Prayer Requests:

1)  Help me to find grace to forgive others.

2)  Help me to know that my chains are gone because I’ve received gracious forgiveness.

3)  Provide me with opportunities to put my faith into “action” for You.

4)  Give me love for others, courage to act, and words and deeds to glorify You.

5) A friend of one of our leaders whose marriage is struggling.  MayGod intervene and grace that relationship with His holy hand.
6) A student's friend who is struggling with a step mother.
7) All the people affected by Hurricane Sandy

Verse of the Day:

Luke 10: 30-37

Summary of Previous verses: 

          Jesus was asked by a powerful lawyer how he could achieve eternal life (clearly the lawyer was trying to test Jesus).  Jesus told him to love God with all his heart, soul, strength and mind.  He also told the lawyer to love his neighbor as himself.  The lawyer then asked who his neighbor was (again he was testing Jesus and expecting Jesus to name Gentiles as the neighbors…he was surprised by the answer)…

30 "Jesus replied and said, "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead.

31 And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

32 Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.

33 But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion,

34 and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him.

35 On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, 'Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return I will repay you.'

36 Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers' hands?"

37 And he said, "The one who showed mercy toward him." Then Jesus said to him, "Go and do the same.""

 

Questions:

1)    Where does this incident allegedly take place?  (The route from Jerusalem to Jericho was particularly dangerous with many robbers present on the mountainous route.)

 

 

2)   Who were the three men that passed by the man who was robbed?  Why was it particularly interesting the Jesus selected a priest, Levite, and Samaritan as the three men?

 

 

3)   What were their reactions?  How were they different?

 

 

4)   What did the Samaritan do?  List his actions.

 

 

5)   What was Jesus’ final command to the lawyer?

 

 

6)   Application:

a.    Do you seek opportunities to serve?

b.    Do you set aside prejudices and see people as God’s creation?

c.    Are you willing to put yourself at risk?

d.    Are you willing to have your motives questioned?

e.    Are you willing to really extend a helping hand?

f.    What is Jesus final command to the lawyer?  That is a command for action…not just talk.  Are you willing to “step up”?

g.    What would your “action” look like at home, in your community, and at school?

 

"Give Me Your Eyes"

Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight
Touched down on the cold black tar
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breathe in the familiar shock
Of confusion
And chaos

All those people goin' somewhere
Why have I never cared?

Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity
Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide what's underneath
There's a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He's out of work, he's buyin' time

All those people goin' somewhere
Why have I never cared?

Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity
Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

I've been there a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just move and pass me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
Well I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way You've seen the people all along

Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity
Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see

Give me Your Eyes (Give me Your eyes for just one second)
Lord, give me Your eyes (Give me Your eyes so I can see)
Everything (Everything that I keep missing)
That I keep missing
Give me Your heart (Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted)
For the broken hearted (The ones that are far beyond my reach)
Give me Your heart (Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten)
Lord, give me Your eyes (Give me Your eyes so I can see)
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

Prayer Requests:

1)  Give me Your eyes to see others with compassion and love.

2)  Help me to love humanity and have “arms for the broken hearted” and “heart for the ones forgotten”.

3)  Provide me with opportunities to put my faith into “action” for You.
