Who doesn’t love a before and after story? When ugly, unlivable houses are transformed into beautiful, inviting homes it’s amazing! And when God’s deep love does it’s work on the raw materials of our lives - the possibilities are absolutely beautiful. Do YOU have the guts to take on a full–life renovation?


This weekend we welcome Pastor Chris Heckaman to our Tipp City campus- launching a brand new message series…

Questions to go Deeper

 

Who doesn’t love a before and after story? When ugly, unlivable houses are transformed into beautiful, inviting homes it’s amazing! And when God’s deep love does it’s work on the raw materials of our lives - the possibilities are absolutely beautiful. Do YOU have the guts to take on a full–life renovation? Daily devotionals that accompany each day's reading are also available on Facebook. They are created by a great Ginghamsburg unpaid servant team. You do not have to be a Facebook user to access them.

MONDAY: Ephesians 1:1-10
What in your life needs reclaimed? Think about the next four weeks of your life and prayerfully dedicate this "me" to a full life transformation.
 
TUESDAY: Genesis 1:26-28
We are made in the image of God. When you look in the mirror do you see God’s image? If not, what do you see? If so, what reflects God’s image?

WEDNESDAY: Matthew 9:35-38
Compassion was thought to come from the gut. Jesus allowed himself to fully embrace his emotion at its core. What are your emotions telling you about your life? What is God asking you to do as a result?
 
THURSDAY: 2 Corinthians 12:1-10
We all have weakness and Paul, the writer of Corinthians, described weakness as strength. How can he claim weakness as strength? What weakness do you need God to transform into strength?
 
FRIDAY: Luke 15:11-31
In Luke 15 Jesus described a God who has a love for “lost things.” Have you ever felt lost? Just like this father, God pursues us—describe the last time you felt God’s pursuit.

SATURDAY: Mark 12:30-31
Do you love yourself? What habits and spiritual practices do you engage in to healthfully focus on yourself? What needs improvement?

SUNDAY: Ephesians 1:11-14
We are reclaimed by God through the power and gift of the Holy Spirit. Do you believe it? Have you received God’s claim on you? Write out a prayer asking God to help you see and receive God’s claim on your life.
