Memorize/Reflect– “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
Reflection– How has my life changed for the better since I entered a relationship with Jesus?
Discussion– How does the presence of the risen Jesus Christ impact one of the following parts of your life? (How you view the future, how you treat people, how you use your finances, how you spend your time)
Prayer Direction– Thank Jesus for His life, death, and resurrection. Pray for the power and presence of the risen Christ to fill your heart and life.
“Live It!” Challenge– As we come to the end of the Looking Back and Looking Forward focus here at Shoreline Church, ask yourself, how will Shoreline be a stronger church five years from now because I am part of it? If you can’t think of any way your life will impact the health of Shoreline, pray about how you can engage in the work God is doing in and through Shoreline in the coming months.
March Prayer Focus– Praying in Power. Continue praying against Satan’s strongholds and, in the power of Jesus’ Name, ask God to break them down. In particular, pray against the ways the enemy tries to steal our joy and passion for Jesus.
January-March- Continue trying new ways of fasting that will drive you to prayer and make you hunger more for God?
