Carry on the Conversation - January 2018

Jan. 7,2018
Key Theme: God has a plan for ALL creation. Psalm 33:11
All of history is the unfolding of God’s plan.
Ask: In what ways do you live your life acknowledging that God has a purpose for you? The reality that God has an unalterable plan for the universe and has the right, power and wisdom to carry out His plan should fill us with awe of Him. What one step can you take this week that will encourage your awe of God?

Jan. 14, 2018
Key Theme: Everything God does has a purpose. Ephesians 1:11
Nothing happens by a chance; all things are ordained by God.
Ask: What fears or worries do you have? How does knowing that everything God does has a purpose help you with that fear or worry? This week, how can you make a conscious effort to turn that fear or worry over to God? This week think of the many possibilities that God may have purposed in the situations you find yourself encountering.

Jan. 21,2018
Key theme: All God’s purposes are right. Deuteronomy 32:3-4
It is wrong to judge God and question His purposes.
Ask: What are some ways that we can fight the fight of faith and keep believing in the goodness of God in difficult situations? Is there someone you can tell this week about the goodness of God?

Jan. 28, 2018
Key theme: God will accomplish all His purposes. Isaiah 46:9b-10
God’s plan cannot be thwarted. Nothing and no one can hinder God from accomplishing His purposes.
Ask: Philippians 1:6b – “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” What is God promising in this passage? If you are a Christian, how is God working in your life to strengthen your faith? What things oppose that work?

Carry on the Conversation

Carry on the Conversation is a  glimpse into what our children are learning in  Children's Worship, and what you might ask to "carry on the conversation" with them at home.

Month of November

Nov. 5, 2017
Key Theme: Trusting in the providence of God. (Isaiah 64:4)
Faith is trusting God’s heart when you cannot see or understand His providential hand.
Ask: The enemy brings many lies into our minds. What are some of the lies that the enemy attacks us with? What happens when we entertain and rehearse these lies?
The bible tells us to “take every thought captive to obey Christ’(2 Corinthians 10:5). What does this mean? What practical things can you do to follow that verse?

Nov. 12, 2017
Key Theme: Trusting in the providence of God. (Psalm 143:10)
Trusting in the providence of God means submitting to His will. Obedience to Him is true freedom.
Ask: Obedience is not just doing the right thing but having the right heart as well. We act out of our hearts. Share about one time this week you obeyed from the heart. Now share a time you obeyed, but your heart wasn’t right. What were you loving most at that moment?

Nov. 19, 2017
Key theme: Looking for the providence of God in all things. (Psalm 143:5)
To rejoice in the works of God, we must learn to meditate on His works.
Ask: What are great works of God in nature have you observed? What do they tell you about God?
Spiritual amnesia; we need to remember, and to remind each other of God’s past mercies. Share one or two ways in which you have seen the providence of God in your family or in your life.

Nov. 26, 2017
Key theme: Looking for the providence of God in all things. (Galatians 2:20)
Seeing the big picture. Those who know Christ are crucified with Him.
Ask: What is meant by “God-centered”? What kinds of things are we temped to center our lives around? And why can’t these things give lasting joy?
Why is seeing the “big picture” so important? What can you do to learn to see the big picture?
