9.10.19 In this message Justin shares about personal ministry. That can sound weird. Or even unaccessible. Like only the best of christians have that. But we think personal ministry is very closely tied to service. And all of us are called to that. And when we step into things like missions, or volunteering, becoming a leader at church or even having conversations about faith with your roommates- it grows us. When we step out of our comfort zones, it forces us to depend on God. And he always shows up.
9.11.18 // It's easy to write off people like Jonah. So often we hear this story in children books, and we think that we would never do what he did. In this message we hear Justin share the full picture of Jonah, why he was an unlikely choice for God to use, and how we are actually just like him. Discussion Questions: -What are your thoughts and opinions about the book of Jonah? -How are you similar to Jonah? -Have you had a time where you were running from God? If so, were you aware at the time that was what you were doing?-Do you have a 'Ninevah'? Who are people that are hard for you to love and wish blessings for? -What is your response to God's question to us, 'Should not I have concern for (your) Ninevah?'
April 17th, 2018Justin opened the floor to share the worst spiritual advice you've ever been given. The recording starts abruptly during that sharing. He focused primarily on the most common topic of bad advice, which is doubt. What do you do in the face of your own doubt? What have you been told in the past? Justin encouraged all of us, to know we are not alone in doubt.Scripture used: Luke 7:18-23Discussion questions: In which area of your life would you say you have the most doubts? In your relationships? At school? In your faith?How do you respond or react to your doubt?When you hear that some of the "big names" in the Bible: David, John the Baptist, and Thomas had doubts, how does that make you feel?What hit you the most in what Justin had to say? Why did it stand out to you and what can you do with it?
