Nov. 25 - Further Up – Further In! (Ezk. 47:1-12)
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: If you could wave a magic wand and heal one thing in the world right now, what would it be?
A way to pray: Ask the Lord to help us reflect His character – His love, life, healing, and goodness – in the way we live our lives. Pray that He'll use our lives to draw many people to Himself, as we seek to see 2,000 people by 2022 baptized and growing in relationship with Jesus Christ through the Word, prayer, and community.
Talk It Over:
Treasuring God: What are some ways the river reflects God's character? Which aspects particularly remind me of God's goodness and power?
Being Transformed: Where do I need the river of God to bring His healing power to bear? What do I need Him to change in me?
Loving Others: How does my life reflect the presence of God's river bringing life and healing to my family, friends, coworkers, and community?
Pursuing Unity: What relationships do I have that are "dead" or "too salty"? How might the river's presence revive them and bring unity?
