06 Oct Matthew 17:22-23

22 And while they were gathering together in Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men; 23 and they will kill Him, and He will be raised on the third day.” And they were deeply grieved.

Jesus tells of His impending death and the disciples are grieved and afraid. Their lack of faith hurt them when they did not believe the reports of His resurrection. How does knowing the promises of God strengthen your faith? Name some of God’s promises. When times get hard, what are some things you can think of that God did for you in the past? How does this knowledge help?
