Response and reflection

If you’re on your own then you may want to write down some personal responses. If you’re meeting with others online then take some time to share questions or reflections you may have, or ways in which you’ve been challenged by God’s word today:

  1. How will you use this time to pause and reflect upon your relationship with Jesus?
  2. How will you use your spiritual gifts to help build up his spiritual house (church)?
  3. How can you use this time to make Christ’s know to all people?

Play the the final song of response. At the conclusion of this song, please take time to reflect on what you’ve heard.

Closing prayer and Fellowship

Take time to fellowship together in your home groups online. Don’t forget to ask each other how you can pray for one another during the coming week.

Have a good day. I look forward to sharing with you next week. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or prayer requests.

“Heavenly Father, thanks for the privilege of meeting with you and with one another today. Now go with us into the week ahead and help us to be your salt of the earth and light of the world. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

Warmly, Chadd
