Sunday to Monday/ You're Not Alone

Graduation is only a concept.  In real life every day you graduate.  Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life.  If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference.  ~Arie Pencovici

Wherever you go, there you are.

On Sunday, Vikki's sermon was entitled “Wherever You Go…You’re Not Alone.”   The text was from Joshua 1: 9 and John 17: 6-19. We also celebrated an important Rite of Passage event, with the blessing of our High School Graduates.

Some questions to help reflect on Sunday's message and help you move into your week....

1. Jesus teaches us how to pray in the Lord’s Prayer (Matt 6:9-15) and in John 17 that could be called the “Other Lord’s Prayer.”  In the John text, Jesus is praying for the disciples.  What does this teach us about prayer?

2. In John 17:11, Jesus prays that his disciples might be “one”.  In this election year it seems that division rules and unity is nowhere to be found.  This is true among churches.  Is unity important?  How might you pray for unity in your life?

3. Do you believe in the power of prayer?   Who is prayer for: the one being prayed for or the one doing the praying? Consider keeping a prayer journal – not necessarily a list of prayer concerns but a documentation of the things on your heart that you lift before God.  See what God does with you and with your prayer concerns.

4. In Joshua 1:9 we learn that wherever we go, God is with us.  In this season of graduations, how might we be encouragers to all who enter into a new time in their lives?
