Sunday, February 4 @ 11:11AM – “…The Important Guy”
This week we begin our new series, “Conversations With…” where we’ll be focusing in on three individuals with whom Jesus engages in conversation. As we eavesdrop on their exchange we’ll hopefully discover things about God, His Kingdom and if we listen hard enough, things about ourselves.
Read: John 2:23-3:21
Think: What if we were physically labeled by words that described the things that were important to us? People, objects, experiences literally worn on our sleeves, exposed for all to see. Wouldn’t the world be a much different place if you were aware of what was important to others, and if they knew what was important to you? Question is, would it change how we treated each other?
Pray: Father, in my conversations may I be aware of what is important. Important to talk about, important to see, important to you. Make me highly sensitive as to what you’re hearing in these conversations, and put words in my mouth when I speak.
Live: The glory of God is a human being fully alive. Alive to the world, alive to ourselves, and alive to God.” (Early Church father, Iraneus)
