Sunday to Monday | Love Through Conflict

On Sunday, Pastor Dave reminded us that we are being called to "repentance"  (Luke 3:8).  Repentance means to turn toward God and see God with clarity. To repent is to come to your senses. True repentance spends less time looking at the past and saying, "I am sorry,” and more time looking at the future and saying “WOW!” Repentance is recognizing what is trash in our lives and what really matters. Sometimes we have to have God's help with this.

 

Here's some questions to guide you through the week:

  • Who are you going to see this Christmas season that you know will be difficult for you to be around? Take time to pray this day for God to prepare the way (Luke 3:4).
  • When was the last time you had a close encounter with God? When was the last time you prayed to come close to God (Luke 3:6)?
  • John the Baptist is a strong voice, whose calling brought on conflict. Do you believe in a God who uses conflict for good? Are you one who presses into to conflict when it seems necessary, or are you one who avoids conflict at all cost (Luke 3:1-6)?
  • How might you bless someone else this day (Genesis 12:1,2)
