REFOCUS QUESTIONS...


Building a strong next-generation doesn’t just happen. Daily decisions create a lifetime legacy as we speak God’s future, hope and possibilities into others. Step into your own powerful legacy!

MONDAY: Acts 2:42-46
Jesus’ movement was ignited in the home. No matter your relationship status, do you see your home as a resource for the movement? How is your family (immediate or church) like the one described in Acts 2?

TUESDAY: Acts 10:24-48
Cornelius and his entire household believed in Jesus because Peter went to his house. What happened to Cornelius? How did his entire family respond? Have you ever visited people who needed encouragement, faith or even prayer?

WEDNESDAY: John 15:12-17
Love is action. How does your definition of love compare to the one that Jesus names in John 15? Do your actions line up with Jesus’ definition? Why or why not?

THURSDAY: Ephesians 5:21-33
Paul’s understanding of marriage is radical for his day. Who is asked to submit? What does it mean to care for one’s spouse? If you are married, are you mutually submittng to one another? Pray for your spouse today to experience the fullness of God’s love.

FRIDAY: Deuteronomy 6:4-9
Jesus followers pass faith to the next generation. Did your parents pass faith to you? Are you teaching your kids, grandkids or the next generation faith?

SATURDAY: Psalm 128
How is your family a blessing? Are you grateful for your family’s presence in your life? Use Psalm 128 as a prayer of blessing over your family.

SUNDAY: Acts 2:42-46
What does devotion to God look like in your family? What are your faith practices? What new practices are you being led to start to help you and your family be more devoted to Jesus?
