SUMMARY | A CHURCH ON MISSION BRINGS GODS HEALING POWER TO THE WORLD
Wartime is forever devastating, especially for those who lost friends and family members. We often reflect upon those who fought bravely in the conflicts with a sense of pride because they fulfilled a higher purpose. There is a sense of healing through these conversations. Sure not all things are as dramatic as wartime. As you reflect upon your life, you can see many moments where something seemed so wrong, but later, you discovered that it served a higher purpose. In Acts chapter 3, we read about two terrible situations that were ultimately used to show powerful healing from God. As you take the next few moments to read Acts chapter 3, consider how the lame man's life and healing served a higher purpose. Also, consider Peter's sermon when he directs the guilt upon the people for the death of Jesus and yet brings to light the higher purpose. Ultimately, this series is for us to discover the 'action' side of being Christ-followers. It is our mission to bring about the healing power of the gospel to the world.
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS |
[Children - Adults] For several weeks now we have encouraged a family prayer board. How is that going? Here is what that looks like: Find a blank piece of paper or a whiteboard, go around the room asking about any concerns or thanksgivings before a time of Prayer. Leave this paper where you can see it all week, discuss them everyday and see where God might be working in them. [Deu 6]
