Watch the short clips below, and answer the questions associated with each.  You can do this alone - but it's always more fun with a group of friends! Be sure to read/study the scriptures in each section.  God's word is the standard by which we measure all our thoughts and ideas.

 

1 | Microwave Faith

In the world today, everything is about getting what we want as fast as possible. Online purchases, video streaming and even the meals we eat are designed around how quick the product can be used or consumed. 

What is your favorite online tv show or app that allows you to do what you like whenever you want to? 
Is there a cultural "pace" that can cause people to move so fast that they miss what God is doing long-term in their lives?

 

2 | Get Sick of it

Are there things about your life that you would like to change? Most people have things they would like to do different, but what does it take to really change?   

What are some things you would like different about your life?

Can you create a plan to see your life-change happen?

scripture: Isaiah 43:19, Deuteronomy 31:6

 

3 | Don't let it become permanent

After Adam and Eve ate of the fruit, sin entered the world and now we can find ourselves in hard and broken situations. Many of these situations did not come from God, but God does desire to walk us through them. 

Do you have any "temporary" past situations that have become permanent in your life? 

What can we do to break off those past situations so we can live in the fullness of Christ?

scripture: Romans 6:11-14

 

4 | the change required

It is so easy in life to form routines. We create habits out of comfort or even to maximize our our ability to perform and produce. When God knocks on the door of our heart and asks us to change, will we be ready to do something new? 

Has God asked you to do anything crazy in the past that didn't make sense, but now you know how important it was?  Do you feel like God is asking you to do something today that just doesn't make sense?

scripture: Joshua 1:9, Romans 12:1-2
