BEFORE YOU COME ON may 22…

We’ll share a meal together this week. It’ll be super chill — salad & sammies on paper plates.

Check the notepad link for what you can bring to share!

While these chapters are long, they are also rich. I am praying we will be “steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.' this week!

FOR OUR NEXT GATHERING:

To read:
1 Corinthians 15, 1 Corinthians 16, 2 Corinthians 4:16-18, Romans 8:37

To think about:
- Why does it matter that we remember the coming glory of Jesus’ return?
- What do you think it means for us as Christ followers, who anticipate the resurrection, to live well today - while also hoping for what will happen when Jesus returns?
- If we have eternity in our sights, how can it change how we view our daily circumstances and difficulties?

To pray:

  • Thank God for what He has done for you through Jesus — in the eternal / spiritual realm, and specifically in your life.

  • Thank God for the promise of Christ’s return, that death will be swallowed up, and will make every sad thing untrue.

  • Ask God to show you His steadfast power, His perfect love, the promise of His presence.

  • Be still in God’s presence for 5-10mins, silent. Consider opening your hands toward Him, as a way of saying, “Here I am. I’m listening. Thank you for your nearness.” Wait on the Lord.

FINAL NOTE:
This is our final gathering! I’m so grateful for the ways you’ve given your time and energy to this book. It’s not an easy one. But I see your hearts (collectively!) for knowing God’s heart for our communities. Even if you haven’t made it to a few meetings, please don’t hesitate from coming this week to share food and encouragement in the Word!
