Preparation and Discussion for Group Time:
Ps Daniel shared what he believes God has laid on his heart for us as a church. Greater is not about us doing GREATER or more things, it’s allowing the Holy Spirit to have greater access and availability in our lives. Because when we allow more access, more room for the Holy Spirit in our lives, the result with be that we will be able to do GREATER things, because of the power of the Holy Spirit at work in us. God is calling for us to MAKE room for him for GREATER.
- God, what do you need me to do, or shift in me to allow GREATER access for the Holy Spirit to work in my life, so that I can have a greater love for you and people? Share this with the group.
- Share what steps you want to take to grow in your devotion / commitment to God.
- Ps Daniel shared that Discipleship and Care, as well as Next Generation is the two focus areas for 2023, not unlike 2022, but with greater depth to them. Share how you will be part of what God wants to do in these areas in our church as we grow in our love for God and people.
Check out and Prayer:
Pair up and pray with one another as they have shared what God has been speaking to them about as we make room for the Holy Spirit to work in our lives.
- The memory verse for this week is John 14:12 (NIV) “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”
