SaturdayProverbs 13-14

Memorize/Reflect:  Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”. (Matthew 9:37-38)

Prayer Direction:  Thank God for the people He placed in your life to pray for you and share His love with you. Ask God to use you to share His gospel, the good news of Jesus with family and friends.

“Live It!” Challenge – See the Sheep: Take time in the coming week to stop somewhere that you tend to move through quickly. It could be a mall, an airport, a grocery store, or any place you go often and tend to move through at a rapid pace. Take ten minutes, slow down, find a place to sit, and pray that God will help you see people the way He does. Pray, “God, let me see people like sheep without a shepherd…loved and lost.” Let God grow your heart toward the lost to be like His heart.

Growth Group Discussion: 

    1. Who is a person that prayed for you and reached out to you with God’s love before you were a follower of Jesus? How has this person’s faith and their expressions of God’s love increased your faith?
    2. Who is one person God has placed in your life that needs to know the love and grace of Jesus? What are ways you are reaching out to this person and seeking to share the love and message of Jesus
    3. Read: Matthew 9:35-38. How does Jesus feel about people who are still far from Him and wandering in their sin? What are ways we can grow a heart more and more like Jesus when it comes to how we see people still wandering in sin?
    4. What is the focus of what Jesus calls us to pray in this passage? How can we embrace this prayer and Jesus’ vision to send believers out into the harvest fields? What helps move us outward with the gospel? What holds us back?
    5. Read: Matthew 28:18-20. What is the difference between making “Disciples,” and making “Converts”? How can we actively enter into the process of helping new believers grow into maturity in their faith?
    6. Read: Acts 1:7-8. What is the source of our power to live out God’s mission and plan for our lives? How can we connect more closely to this power supply?
    7. What is your “Samaria”? (This is the place or people that need Jesus but you tend to avoid them). What is one way you can take a step into your Samaria and bring the love and message of Jesus to people that are often avoided.

Memorize/Reflect:  “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” (John 15:15)

Prayer Direction:  Thank God for sending Jesus so that you can walk in intimacy and friendship with the One who made the heavens and the earth and who loves you more than words can express. Pray for a growing commitment to spend time with God each day so that your friendship can grow.

“Live It!” Challenge – Hang Out: When we have a real and growing friendship, we desire to spend time with this person. Having a friendship with God is no different. As you grow in your intimacy with Jesus, you desire to spend time with Him. Make time each day in the coming week to “Hang Out” with God. Be sure to do the following: Tell Him what is on your heart and express your appreciation and love. Listen and invite Him to speak to you. Read a passage of the Bible and ask God to speak truth to you. Thank Him for His friendship and the price He paid so that you can be in a whole and healed relationship with Him.

Growth Group Discussion: 

    1. What are some signs that a friendship (with another person) is healthy, strong and growing?
    2. What are indications that a friendship (with another person) is eroding, struggling, and growing less healthy?
    3. Look at the answers your Growth Group shared in response to the first two questions and talk about some of the indicators or signs you might see when your friendship with God is healthy and strong. What are indicators that your friendship with God is not thriving and might need some attention?
    4. Read: John 15:1-8. Our intimacy with Jesus is painted as a vine with branches in this passage. What do you learn about your friendship with Jesus, and His relationship with you in this passage?
    5. “Remaining in Jesus” is about staying connected, close, and intimate in our friendship with Him. What are ways we can connect more closely with our Savior? What practices or disciplines most connect you to Jesus? What gets in the way of this intimacy?
    6. What is one practical way you can connect more closely with Jesus as a friend? How can your group members pray for you and keep you accountable to make time and space in your life to grow in your friendship with the Savior?
    7. Read: John 15:9-17. What has God done to show you the greatness of His love and desire to be in relationship with you (from this passage and other parts of the Bible)?
    8. What can you do to show God the greatness of your love for Him?
    9. How is our love for the people God places in our life an indicator of how much we love God? Who is one person you need to love with greater intentionality and action and what can you do to show this person love?

Memorize/Reflect:  “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes.

“Live It!” Challenge – Keeping Your Eyes on Heaven: Pray and think about ways your eyes are more on this world and life than they are on heaven. These can be good things, but they don’t have eternal significance. Identify one specific behavior, pursuit, or pattern in your life that has you locked too closely on this earth and in this life. For one week, do all you can to get your eyes off this thing and adjust your focus on things that last forever and bring honor to Jesus.

Growth Group Discussion: 

    1. When you think of heaven and being with God (and other Christians) forever, what thoughts, pictures, and ideas come to your mind?
    2. Why is it important to keep our eyes on heaven as we walk through the joys and challenges of this life? How can we be strengthened and encouraged by staying aware of the hope of heaven?
    3. Read: John 14:1-4. What do you learn about heaven in this passage?
    4. Read: John 14:5-14.What is the connection between spending forever in heaven with God and what we believe about the person and work of Jesus?
    5. When we know Jesus and receive His grace by faith, how should this impact how we live today? How have you experienced life-transformation because of your relationship with Jesus?
    6. What are things from this world that will last for eternity? How much time do we spend investing in these? What do we invest in that will last for only this life? How much time do we spend investing in these?
    7. Read: Matthew 6:19-24.What are some practical ways we can actually store up treasures in heaven and invest in eternity?
    8. Jesus makes a clear and strong connection between what we treasure (focus on, invest in, and live for) and where our heart is. What do you think Jesus is getting at? What is one way you can start investing more intentionally in heavenly treasures?
