Lockdown Lessons: #1 Being in God’s will, not our own.

  1. When have you been a ‘Jonah’ – where God was sending you in one direction and you were simply determined to go the other way? Is that happening in your life now?

The Power of Positive Thinking

Questions from this week’s message:

  1. Positive thinking allows us to have every chance of being the ‘non-anxious presence’ of Jesus Christ to our friends, our neighbours and our family. Where is God using you to be that right now?
  2. Where in your life has God built your confidence? In what situations, places, and times have you been able to claim God’s promise: “I am with you?”
  3. Have there been times in your life when, faced with a situation in front of you, you have doubted the power of God? If so, how have you turned that around and seen God work through that time?
  4. Attitude is everything! What will it take in your life to accept God’s call and understand that He doesn’t call the equipped… He equips the called?

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is…..

QUESTIONS from the message:

  1. Each one of us is called to mission. Who are the people whom God is placing in your path – that He wants you to share Jesus with?
  2. YOU are a part of God’s ‘Plan A!’ How can you use your personal experience of salvation in Jesus Christ to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others? Is that over a coffee? A meal? Simply asking them if they would like to read the Bible with you?
  3. 80% of people give their lives to Jesus Christ through invitations from friends or family. Are we, as the church – are YOU as the church – being bold enough in our conversations with friends and family? Are YOU being bold enough?
  4. Our salvation is intrinsically linked with the fact that we have repented – turned away from – our sin. Are you struggling with sin in your life? Talk to someone you trust about it and give it over to Jesus.
