Voyage in Christ:From Child of the Accuser to Child of God-IJohn 2:28-3:10-April 15, 2018

Watch the Sermon Here

Reflection Questions for Individual or Group Study:

1. What about the message really spoke to you that you want to keep on thinking about during this week?

2. John uses images that contrast each other quite a bit. In today’s scripture, he contrasts children of the accuser and children of God. Read 1 John 3:7-10 and list the differences between the two kinds of children.

3. The accuser likes to tempt us to think that we are not good enough or that we don’t have enough. How does the feeling of not being good enough or not having enough affect people’s behavior? What do you struggle with more, the feeling of not being good enough or not having enough?

4. Read 1 John 3:5 & 8. Why did Jesus appear? How does that bring you hope?

5. John seems to indicate that more transformation is coming in the future! What area of your life do you need to purify in order to prepare for the future?

6. How do you feel led to pray?

Voyager Prayer Challenge

April 15-21, 2018

As we enter this new season at Stillmeadow, we invite you to join the Voyager Prayer Crew through individual reading and prayer times.  Setting aside time to pray and read through scripture as a community is a powerful way of experiencing God’s unity.

INSTRUCTIONS

· Choose a time & place to be quiet for 10-15 minutes.

· Start by listing three things for which you are thankful.

· Invite Christ to speak to you through the reading.

· As you read the scripture passage ask these three questions:

 

1. What does John say God gives to his people?

2. What does John have to say about sin?

3. What area of your life do you need to purify or clean up? Ask God for help.

· Finish in prayer for yourself, your family, your neighbors, your co-workers, your church.
