Next Steps from Sunday

Here are some ways you can live our Sunday’s sermon this week:

Go to your Choice Small Group this week: Make sure your group goes over the group values on page 52 of the leader’s guide. We want to make sure our groups are safe places to share. And then share openly.

Think about this Vision Exercise:  Reflect on Past Desires. What did you use to want out of life?  What did you use to want to be when you grew up? What did you use to love doing? Often God has planted seeds of our future vision in the past. Look to your past this week and then share with your Choice Small Group.

Identify Uncontrollable Feelings/Thoughts/Actions: Paul struggled with these issues. We do too. What negative/destructive feeling do you consistently experience over time that seems beyond your control? What negative/destructive thought do you consistently think over time that seems beyond your control? What negative/destructive behavior do you consistently perform over time that seems beyond your control? Identify that hurt, that hang-up, that habit that you seek to overcome.  Naming it decreases it’s power.     

Bury it/Toss it/Cast it out in Christ’s Name: Words have power. Action have power. Words and actions together have a lot of power. So have a burial service for that feeling/thought/action. “May ____________ Rest in Peace in my Life from this day forward in Jesus’ name.”
