Jan. 7 - Extraordinarily Ordinary People (Jn. 17:17-19; 2 Cor. 5:14-21; Mt. 28:18-20)
First listen to the sermon (posts Sun. afternoon). Then use the ideas below to help you and your group apply what the Lord is teaching you.
Icebreaker idea: Have you ever gone on a mission trip? If so, share a little about it. If not, what's a mission trip you would like to go on (where would you go and what would you do)?
A way to pray: Pray for God to give us increased desire and opportunities to share His good news with others as we seek to see 2,000 people baptized and growing in relationship with Him by 2022.
- Treasuring God: What is one thing I love about God that I want others to experience, too? How can I play a part in that?
- Being Transformed: What is one change I can make to move toward those who don't yet have a relationship with Jesus?
- Loving Others: What are some practical examples of how I have shared the love of Jesus recently through my words and through my actions?
- Pursuing Unity: How does being "on mission" together bring unity? What role am I currently playing in NPBC's mission?
