Session 6 // Steps


READ ALOUD

This is the last session in the series. We have talked about our church’s plan for spiritual growth:

  • ATTEND WORSHIP EVERY WEEK
  • READ YOUR BIBLE AND PRAY DAILY
  • COMMIT TO A GOD JOB AND SERVE EVERY WEEK
  • COMMIT TO A SMALL GROUP THAT MEETS REGULARLY
  • COMMIT TO TITHING AND A LIFESTYLE OF GENEROSITY

We have gone through all of them except number 5, which is what we are going to talk about today. It can be the most weird one to talk about, but it is going to be the most exciting one because there is only one place in scripture that says God will open the floodgates of blessing in your life and that is surrounding this topic.  


DISCUSSION

  • How did your prayer time go this week?
  • What is your biggest pet peeve?
  • If you had unlimited resources, what would you do for God?
  • Other than resources, what is keeping you from doing that now?
