An often overlooked aspect of what the Spirit-led life looks like?
How do you know you have truly forgiven someone? Have you ever forgiven someone of a debt they could not pay?
Who can live this way?
Scripture: Lev 25:10 Luke 4:18-19 Lev 25:29-31 Lev 25:1-2 Acts 2:42-45, 4:32-35
Any ideas on how to live the spirit of Jubilee today? What is it about Jesus that sets us free to truly live? Jubilee isn’t for everyone but is it for all Christians?
Jubilee has arrived. The way of Jesus is good news for souls and society!
Two weeks into this series, what questions do you have? What concepts do you find surprising? Any ideas on how to make the first sermon of Jesus a reality in our lives?
Sometimes God is near but we fail to recognize him. Have you ever missed seeing even though he was near?
Do you have a story of when you met Jesus?
Were you the person who needed to read the Bible to intellectually find Christ or did you need to experience him through church or a friend?
Jesus prays for you? What does he say?
Jesus knows we will all turn away…what’s surprising is that he has a vision for our life when we turn back.
Has God ever used your sifting to strengthen someone else’s life?
God is fine with our questions and doubts and it’s a good thing because these are difficult words:
“…Satan has asked to sift you like wheat…”
In this message we discover that sifting isn’t the end but the beginning of something beautiful…have you seen this in your own life or others?
Has your faith been tested? How did you respond?
“Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.” Luke 22.31-32
These are terrifying and simultaneously comforting words. For the season of Lent we are going to settle in and let each phrase speak to our souls. Sometimes God allows our faith to be tested, to be shown tried & true.
Here’s part one of Verified.
This is such a challenging passage. What questions does it evoke for you?
Do you think your faith would survive like Job’s? Would you respond in praise like he did? (Job. 1.20-22)
