Here are some topics and some links to book or video studies for us to consider.
1. We can continue in Chapter 5 of the Book of Matthew,
We will walk with Jesus and learn directly from Him in our study of Matthew, Chapter 5.
This is HOW and WHAT Jesus taught His Disciple as He prepared them to GO and TELL and DO the Gospel.
This study will equip and prepare us to GO and TELL and DO the Gospel of Christ in our lives, also.
This study will be taught in a way you have never heard or seen before. It is the Picture of Salvation and the Process of Sanctification for every committed follower of Jesus Christ.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT (Taken from Matthew 4:23)
We will study and pray as we go
As we discover and accept the Call of Christ on our lives to go throughout all of our "Galilee",
teaching and proclaiming the gospel of the Kingdom, and
healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people.
So the news about Jesus will be spread throughout our neighborhoods and city;
And they will bring to Him all who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics;
And He will heal them.
And, large crowds will follow Him.
2. We can use materials and studies from Chip Ingram's ministry, "Living on the Edge". I recommend the two listed below (but you can review others for ideas)
Just click on the link and watch the Lesson Trailer or the Full Session to get an idea of what the study offers. Living on the Edge ministry also offers training for group leaders, videos and study materials.
3. We can study through The Truth Project by breaking each video study into shorter sessions.
You can watch a Video 'teaser' here: http://www.thetruthproject.org/
4. We can watch and discuss a video (a one night event) about God inspired Revivals sweeping cities.
From the video case, "Imagine a community where 92 percent of the population is born-again; where city jails have been closed for lack of crime; where agricultural productivity has reached biblical proportions. Imagine a city where 60,000 Christians jam the municipal soccer stadium for all-night prayer vigils every 90 dyas; where a multi-billion dollar drug cartel has been brought to its knees. Learn how the power of prayer can deliver similar results in your own neighborhood" (from the video blurb, "TRANSFORMATIONS".) THis was introduced by Mike Bradbury. Please take a look.
You can see a short introduction at https://player.vimeo.com/video/80338112?
5. We can watch and discuss a video (a one night event) about a new Reformation sweeping Europe and now the US.
This is known as The Last Reformation, where we get back to what we read in the Acts: A simple disciple-life led by the Holy Spirit, where the kingdom of God comes near in homes, on the streets, in shops – yes, all places where people are.
You can sample this 'movie' by this short clip from Youtube:
Do you have a preference? We can even do the Book of Matthew or a Video lesson plan from Living on the Edge ministry or The Truth Project AND take a break along the way and do a ONE NIGHT VIDEO EVENT as described. Please make your comments below.
