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?

Weekly Reading :: 2.24.13

On February 23, 2013, in Featured-Auto, Weekly Reading, by Shoreline

Reading Plan for next week’s message

SundayActs 1-2
MondayActs 3-4 
TuesdayActs 5-6
WednesdayActs 7-8
ThursdayActs 9-10
FridayEphesians 1-2
Saturday1 Corinthians 12, Romans 12

Memorize/Reflect:  “One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” (John 9:25)

Prayer Direction:  Ask the Holy Spirit to give you boldness and confidence to tell your story of how Jesus opened your eyes, healed your life, and became your friend. Like the blind man in John 9, you don’t have to give an answer for every theological question people might ask. What you do need to do is be able to tell the story of God’s presence and power in your life. Pray for courage and opportunities to do this.

“Live It!” Challenge:  Practice, Practice, Practice - Do two things in the coming week. Write out, in one page or less, the story of how you came to faith in Jesus and how His presence in your life has changed you for the better. Second, tell a Christian friend the story of how you came to faith in Jesus and the impact your relationship with God is making on your life.

SundayEphesians 6
MondayRomans 10

Wednesday1 Corinthians 15
Thursday1 Peter 3
FridayMatthew 28
SaturdayActs 9, Acts 22

Memorize/Reflect:  “your kingdom come,
your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10)

Prayer Direction:  Identify an area of your life where you know your will has become too strong and you need to seek God’s will in this part of your life. Commit to pray, daily, “God, may your will be done in this specific area.” Surrender to whatever God calls you to do as you follow His will first in your life.

“Live It!” Challenge:  As you pray about the specific area of your life where you are not lining up with God’s will for you, take one very practical step away from your will and toward God’s plan for your life. Tell one Christian you trust about this change and action and invite them to pray for you and keep you accountable.
