"While there is a lot to lament this year, when we look to Jesus we remember just how much there is to be thankful for as well."

November 22nd, 2020

In the book of Colossians God directs our gaze to look closely and intently on his Son.  And when our eyes are fixed on Jesus we come to realize that, even in this season of difficulty, God is inviting us into a season of gratitude.  In Christ God has given us more than we could ever imagine, but the incredible thing is, he's not done yet!  As we look forward to this new series we await with eager expectation the transformation and multiplication God is going to do in us and through us. 

Application Questions:

  1. As you look back over the last 9 months, what are some of the ways you seen the gospel grow and transform your heart?  If you're having trouble identifying any, pray for God's help seeing them, and ask those close to you.
  2. As you look back over the last 9 months, what are some ways that you have seen the gospel spread and transform?
  3. How would the coming months be different if you were focussed not on what you can't do or what has been taken from you and instead on what God is doing and how he's working?
  4. What is one practical way you can make the coming months a season of increased and focussed prayer?  Tell someone close to you what you intend to do so you can encourage one another and keep one another accountable.
