X-RAY VISION— 1/22/15

Hello #teamawakening family!

We kicked off the night with a fun group game before heading into our worship time. Once the GEN122 Youth Band was finished leading us in worship, we headed into the message.

This week was week two of our X-RAY VISION Series. The message topic was “Develop a Deeper Walk of Faith”.

We started the message by showing some pictures that were about two years old of some of the youth to demonstrate how we develop and grow physically. God desires for us to grow and develop in our spiritual walks with him as well.

1.  Developing a Deeper Walk of Faith

Hebrews 5:12NIV says,

12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!

1 Corinthians 3:2 says,

12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!

What’s the bottom line? God wants us to go deeper with him, to learn more about him, and experience his love to the fullest.

Romans 12:2 says,

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Transformation means to change. When we allow God to transform us, we are able to begin to discover his plan for our lives. The problem? We too often believe the lie that says, “Admitting that there is something about us that needs to be changed or transformed means that we are weak, insignificant, and failures”. The truth? Admitting that we need to be transformed simply means that God isn’t finished with us yet! God desires us to develop a deeper walk of faith until the day we die. He has so much he wants to show us and do in our lives that it is a lifelong process!

2.  Helping Others Develop a Deeper Walk of Faith

Hebrews 10:24-25 says,

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Developing a deeper walk of faith isn’t an individual effort. Developing a deeper walk of faith has to be a team effort. It doesn’t matter if we’re all alike, like each other, or have a lot in common. We are all part of the same team and are called to help each other develop a
deeper walk of faith.

We finished out the night by splitting back into our Tribe Huddles to talk about the message in more detail.

Next week will be the final week of our X-RAY VISION Series. We will be talking about discovering God’s purpose for our lives, and will close out the night with ice cream sundaes!

See you next week!
