When an unarmed conscientious objector runs straight into the heat of the battle to save as many lives as possible it must be for love. Not human love- but the deeper love of the One who calls each of us to live out of such intense conviction. This weekend, another challenging and powerful message...

REFOCUS QUESTIONS...


When an unarmed conscientious objector runs straight into the heat of the battle to save as many lives as possible it must be for love. Not human love – but the deeper love of the One who calls each of us to live out of such intense conviction. This weekend, another challenging and powerful message...

AT THE MOVIES: "HACKSAW RIDGE”

MONDAY: James 2:14-18
Do you have faith in Jesus? Can you see evidence of faith in your life: your workplace, your family, your friendships, your community?

TUESDAY: Ephesians 6:10-12
There are things in this life worth fighting for! As followers of Jesus who or what are we really fighting against? Name some of the “principalities and dark powers” you find yourself fighting today. Ask God to help you with a battle plan.

WEDNESDAY: James 1:26-17
Our words matter. Is what you are saying matching up with how you are living? Take an inventory of your latest conversations: are they in alignment with following Jesus?

THURSDAY: Mark 8:34-38
What does Jesus want from his followers? What’s the challenge for you in these verses? What is Jesus asking you to do?

FRIDAY: Ruth 1:6-18
Ruth was willing to die alongside of her mother-in-law Naomi. Are Ruth’s actions inspiring to you? What are you willing to sacrifice in your life — a job, money, fame, friends, unhealthy family — so that you can live into your God purpose?

SATURDAY: James 2:20-26
Has your relationship with Jesus died? Does your faith need new life— resurrection? Ask God to give life to your faith and help you fully follow Jesus.

SUNDAY: Matthew 28:19-20 God’s news is good news. Where are followers of Jesus supposed to share God’s good news? What does it mean for you to go, teach and baptize?
