Youth Tomorrow Night // 6:45 PM in the Sr High Room

Tomorrow night, Pastor Nathan will be continuing our “Abba” series, and will specifically be looking at God the Father as a “Giver”. We will be studying Jesus’ connection with the Father and His giving heart by looking at Luke 11:1-13, taking note of how we can shamelessly and expectantly ask our heavenly Father for good things, knowing He wants us to approach Him and will give us only the best (even if “best” isn’t what we specifically wanted!). Knowing the heart of God has a Father allows us to approach confidently, ask shamelessly, and hope expectantly. This will be the main thrust on Wednesday as we delve deeper into the life-changing truth that our God is a Father.
Here are some questions to consider:
  • How do you approach God? Why do you give that answer?
  • Do you feel you personally pray enough, or with the highest expectation of His goodness?
  • How specifically has God answered a prayer of yours? How has God NOT answered your prayer by giving you what you asked, but taught you something else instead?
  • What are good gifts God has given you?
