We Believe in Miracles:Preparing for a miracle

Preparing for a Miracle

1. What do you believe makes a miracle, a miracle?

2. Have you ever witnessed a miracle?  What happened?

3. Pastor noted that in scripture that people often prepared before great movements of God.  Pastor requested everyone prayerfully consider the following ways of preparation…
a) Whatever God says to do, DO IT.
b) Fast and pray.
c) Get on board.

How do you prepare for a miracle? How can we prepare for the Miracle Weekend?

4. Pastor stated “obedience gets God’s attention”.  In what ways can we be obedient?  Name one way you personally can be obedient or improve in your obedience?

What’s n it 4 me?: He’s Bringing It With Him

He’s Bringing It With Him

1. Christ will be bringing rewards when He comes back. With that thought in mind, where is your focus? Is it on the temporal or the eternal?

2. Pastor Chris talked about the daily battle “who will we honor?”. Who is winning the battle of honor in your life?

3. Pastor Chris mentioned being “washed in the Word”. What does that mean? What’s the next step for you? How do you make the next step and routine?

4. Pastor Chris spoke of the devil stealing our seed. How does that happen? What does it look like? How do we prevent it?

5. We can lose our rewards. How does that make you feel? What is one thing that you did (or did not do) that may have caused you to loose a reward?

6. Are you more concerned about getting to heaven or the rewards you’ll receive?

What’s n it 4 me?: All You Own Is On Loan

All You Own Is On Loan

1. Talk about the concepts “all you own is on loan” and “you are not your own, but you were bought with a price”. Are these concepts easy to grasp? When are they the easiest to understand? When are they difficult to remember or understand?

2. Pastor Chris debunked several myths on money, such as giving 10% allows you to spend the other 90% however you want. What myths have captured your attention? How are you doing as a steward of God’s stuff?

3. Matthew 25 talks about our being judged on our abilities, not by how we’ve done compared to anyone else. Is that good, bad, surprising, unsettling?

4. God is all about helping you reach your potential or maximizing your ministry? What steps has God taken to help you reach your potential? Where have you been found faithful or trustworthy? Where do you still need to grow?

5. Where is your treasure?
