CIRCLING THE SUN, Part 7: Let’s Get It Started!

We loved seeing everyone this weekend! Feel free to message us during the week if you have any questions. If you missed this week’s message, or want to hear it again, be sure to check out our SERMONS Page. Messages are generally posted each week by Tuesday afternoon.

Every week, it’s our goal to provide you with some questions to process the message deeper, either personally, or with a small group. Here are some questions for you to consider from this week’s message, “Let’s Get It Started!”, part 7 of the CIRCLING THE SUN message series, with Pastor Shawn M. Shoup.

KEY SCRIPTURES

  • Psalm 90:12, 17 NIV, 2 Timothy 4:6-8 ESV

TALK IT OUT

Discuss these questions with someone—maybe a family member, friend, or member of your Connect Group. Use a communication method that works best for your situation. 

Start talking.

Find a conversation starter for your group.  

  • If you could make any personal life change – and money wasn’t an issue – what would you change?
  • If you could change anything about our world, what would that be?

Start thinking.

Ask a question to get your group thinking. 

  • What has happened in the world over the past 8 weeks? What has happened in your life?
  • We’ve traveled over 85 MILLION miles already in 2021. What have you accomplished during that journey?

Start sharing.

Choose a question to create openness. 

  • Do you feel you could have done more or better, or had bigger impact, during that 85-million-mile trip through January and February 2021?
  • Psalm 90:12 “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain the heart of wisdom.” Do you feel that your view of the past 85-million miles has provided you with wisdom on how to use the next 85-million miles?

Start praying.

Be bold and pray with power. 

  • God, thank You for the gift that is this day. This year. This trip around the Sun. I pray that You help me to understand the fleeting nature of life so that I may grow to use each moment wisely. Help me to value each moment You give me. Amen.

Start doing.

Commit to a step and live it out this week. 

  • Continue to pray that God would help you to number your days that you may continue to grow a heart of wisdom.
  • Spend 2021 maximizing each day, doing your best to not waste the gift that it is.
