Weekly Reading :: 3.10.13

On March 9, 2013, in Featured-Auto, Weekly Reading, by Shoreline

Reading Plan for next week’s message

SundayPsalm 22
MondayIsaiah 53 
TuesdayLuke 1
WednesdayLuke 2
ThursdayJohn 18-19
FridayJohn 20-21
SaturdayPhilippians 2, Colossians 1

Memorize/Reflect:  “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Prayer Direction:  Ask for God to help you see yourself as you really are. Pray for an awareness of how much God loves you. Pray also for a humble attitude that shows you are aware that every good gift you have comes from God.

“Live It!” Challenge: Make a List - Write down a list of the many gifts, abilities, things, and blessings you have in your life. This list can include people you love, skills you have, spiritual blessings, and any good thing in your life. Then, reflect on how God is involved in providing each of these for you. Spend time this week, each day, reflecting on how good God has been to you and make time to thank Him.

 

Small Group Discussion (Stuff About You):

    1. Read: Psalm 139:1-12.  What do you learn in this passage about God’s knowledge of you and His work in your life?
    2. What does this passage teach you about where God is and where He is at work today?
      How does it make you feel when you realize where God is and where He is at work?
    3. There is real intimacy in verse 5 when God David declares that God, “Hems him in behind and before and lays his hand on him.” What picture does this paint in your mind?
      How have you seen God go before you and follow behind you?
    4. What does it mean to say that God has laid his hand on you?
      How have you experienced this?
    5. Read: Psalm 139:13-18.  David writes about how God was with him, forming him in his mother’s womb. What are some of the implications we should be aware of if God is at work in a mother’s womb, forming and touching each child? What value does this give to each life?
    6. David boldly declares that he is “fearfully and wonderfully made,” and that, as part of God’s creation, he is “wonderful!”  What is one thing about the way God has made you that can reveal God’s creativity and glory? Are you comfortable declaring, “As God’s son or daughter, I am wonderful!”  Why or why not?
    7. Read: Romans 3:10-18.  The apostle Paul gives a list of Old Testament quotes about the nature of people and the condition of our hearts without the grace of God received through Jesus.  What kind of picture does Paul paint of humans without Jesus?  How do you respond to this description of you and every person who has ever walked this planet (except Jesus)?
    8. Read: Romans 3:21-26. In God’s plan of salvation, what has our Heavenly Father done, what has Jesus done, and what must we do?
    9. Read: Romans 6:22-23.  When we have received the free gift of God’s grace through faith in Jesus, we are called to grow in holiness.  This process of sanctification lasts a lifetime.  What is one way you see God growing you in holiness?  What challenges are you facing in this process of growing in sanctification (as you become more like Jesus)?
    10. How can your group members pray for you and encourage you as you seek to walk in freedom, turn from sin, and live inthe power of Jesus?

Weekly Reading :: 3.3.13

On March 2, 2013, in Featured-Auto, Weekly Reading, by Shoreline

Reading Plan for next week’s message

SundayPsalm 139  (Read at least twice)
MondayGenesis 2-3 
TuesdayRomans 1-2
WednesdayRomans 3-4
ThursdayRomans 5-6
FridayRomans 7
SaturdayRomans 8

Memorize/Reflect:  “For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.” (Revelation 19:7)

Prayer Direction:  Pray for Shoreline Community Church to be so recklessly devoted to Jesus that we will follow Him no matter where He calls us to go and no matter what He calls us to do! Ask the Holy Spirit to move in power when we are together so that as many people as possible can become totally committed to Jesus Christ.

“Live It!” Challenge:  Bless a Church Leader  - Take time to write two notes this week. First, write a note to one of our Leadership Team members (They are listed in the bulletin and on the website. Next, write a note of thanks and encouragement to one of our staff members. Thank these leaders for how they serve faithfully and bring blessings to others.

Small Group Discussion (Reckless Church):

  1. Read: James 1:27; Deuteronomy 10:17-19; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; and Colossians 3:12.  A reckless church will extend grace, mercy, and compassion to those who are broken and outcast (but do this with wisdom!).  With this in mind, what are some of the ways Shoreline Church is seeking to care for the hurting and broken in our community?
    Are there some fresh, creative, and new ways we can extend grace in our community and beyond?
  2. Why do we have to be prayerful, patient, and wise as we extend mercy and care for those who are facing hard times?  What are some of the risks we could face if we don’t exercise wisdom as we extend care?
  3. Read: 2 Timothy 3:14-17.  What do we learn about the Bible in this passage?
  4. How have you experienced God using His Word to teach, rebuke, correct, or train you in righteousness?
  5. What are some of the things the Bible teaches that our culture pushes back against?  What are some of the challenges we could face if our church holds to these biblical truths, even when the culture fights against them?
  6. Read: Psalm 96:1; Psalm 98:1; 2 Corinthians 5:16-17.  Our God is the one who created the heavens and the earth.  He loves beauty, color, texture, and new things…including new songs!  Why is it important that Shoreline Church not fall into the rut of traditionalism and mindless routine?  What are some of the dangers of becoming a “Same old, same old” church?
  7. What are some of the new and creative things happening at Shoreline that will help us fulfill our mission to help as many people as possible become totally committed to Jesus Christ?
  8. Read: Matthew 28:16-20 and Acts 1:4-8.  Jesus calls His people, His Church, to bring the message of His love and grace to their next-door neighbors and to the ends of the earth.  What are some of the ways you see Shoreline seeking to fulfill the call of Jesus to spread His truth in our community and around the world?
  9. Why is it important for every person who calls Shoreline their church home to be sharing their faith with others?  What are some of the ways you are seeking to do organic outreach and share God’s love with the people God has placed in your life?
  10. How can your group members pray for you as you seek to let the light of Jesus shine through your life?
