“Repentance: The Starting Line For Revival"
Pastor Justin Miller
If you could have one new thing in your life, what would it be?
Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV
18 “Forget the former things;do not dwell on the past. 19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Philippians 3:13 NIV
13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
- What do we normally focus on when we are looking back?
- Why do we find it so difficult to focus on what’s in front of us, rather than what’s behind us?
- What does the word Repentance mean to you?
Psalm 51:17 MSG
17 Going through the motions doesn’t please you,a flawless performance is nothing to you. I learned God-worship when my pride was shattered. Heart-shattered lives ready for lovedon’t for a moment escape God’s notice.
- What are some of the things in your life that you need to repent of?
2 Peter 3:9 NIV
9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
- What do these verses speak to us about God’s patience and desire for us?
Romans 6:23 NIV
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 John 1:8-9 NIV
8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Romans 12:2 NIV
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
- In light of this verse, what things are occupying your mind? How can we allow God to transform us?
- Have you given your life to Jesus? If not, talk to your church members. We would love to tell you about the saving grace of Jesus.
- Spend some time in prayer this week and if you need to, repent for actions you may have taken.
- Memorize Romans 12:2. Let your life be a new creation and allow God to transform your life. Let Him guide and direct your revival.
ANNOUNCEMENTS & EVENTS
for the week of 9-6-2020
Not Your Mama’s Bible Study presents:
The Book of Ruth Bianca Juárez Olthoff
God can seem distant when dreams fade, people die, or careers fail. It may feel like He slammed the door in your face and walked out for good. No one knows the feeling of abandonment more than Ruth and Naomi. Their story begins with the worst—death, famine, and poverty. And God remains silent.
But the book of Ruth doesn’t end with despair. The story brims with hope because God works on behalf of the two widows in ways they least expect. In this 7-part series, Bianca Juárez Olthoff, speaker and author of Play with Fire, teaches through Ruth to show how God moves behind the scenes in our lives.
Walk the journey of Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz and discover the devoted love of God and His transformative power in our lives.
Beverages and a light snack will be served.
