Build Faithfully

 

Faithfulness

  • Requires Time
  • Requires Steadfastness and Perserverance

 

Build Faithfully (Verses 19, 20)

 

Wandering from the Truth
 
Saving Souls from Death
 
Covers a Multitude of Sins

 

Psalm 32:1,2; Psalm 85:2

 

Baptism, Membership, Community

 

Who is family?
 
Where do I find my sense of belonging?
 
Who’s coming for me?

 

Community Meditation 

 

Know

  • Read Genesis 17:1-8; Romans 9:1-8. Discuss God’s promises made to his covenant people and God’s faithfulness to each of these promises.

Feel

  • Jesus taught us beautifully that “He who is forgiven much loves much.” See Luke 7:36-50. Do you ever consider where you would be now and for eternity without God's grace towards you?
  • How does God's faithfulness to us, move our hearts towards faithfulness to him?

Live

  • Are you flaky in any area of your life? Or trustworthy and reliable to come through? At work? In ministry? And your relationships? In your marriage?
  • How does selfishness get in the way of faithfulness? Lead to sins of omission?
