This week’s Bonus Feature – Back to the Future
Primary Scriptures: Philippians 3:13-14, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Deuteronomy 8:2, Hebrews 8:12, Romans 5:3-5
- What did God do to pull you through a dark time?
- Look at a past mistake or two, and think of them not as something to change or regret, but as something God can use to show His glory. How does your perspective change when focused on glorifying God?
- How can we focus on the present, not necessarily forgetting the past, but using its potential to follow the filling?
- God reminds the Israelites of their past for the sake of instruction. Remembering who God is will be our best way not only to regard our past, but also to define our present, and to guide our future. What can you do this week to glorify God?
Discovery Bible Method:
For deeper study, as an alternative to the questions above, read Romans 5:3-5 and use the Discovery Bible Method to explore the passage.
Suggestion: Consider breaking the group into twos or threes for this part.
Past mistakes often require forgiveness of yourself or others. Share who you need to forgive this week? How can you show yourself grace, as God does?
Engage the World Around Us
Creating Back to the Movies and these Bonus Features involved hundreds of Promisors, from writing and producing, leading in worship, planning the decorations, constructing the props, popcorn makers and servers, and the weekend team of parking, ushers, greeters, and fpKids area.
Faith Promise could not be the movement of God it is without people like you, serving in a capacity that best suits the gifts and talents God gave you.
Where are you serving? Have you been through Next Steps?
Expand God’s Kingdom
We have four more weeks of Back to the Movies. Who are you inviting to the weekends and to your group? This is the perfect opportunity to invite your friends, co-workers, and neighbors who don’t normally go to church. Have a movie night and invite people to watch the movies for the series, then invite them to connect faith and film and maybe find the real love of Jesus for the first time!
