The Text In Context

Bob Deffinbaugh, "The First Sign: Jesus Turns Water Into Wine"

Wedding celebrations were public functions that lasted up to seven days and were the highlight of a couple's life.

1. Invite…
1. Invite Jesus into your life.
For Reflection/Discussion
For Reflection/Discussion: What difference does it make when a person invites Jesus into their life?
2. Let…
2. Let Jesus know your needs.
Every miracle starts…
Every miracle starts with a problem.
For Reflection/Discussion
For Reflection/Discussion: Why do we have a hard time admitting that we have problems? Why do we try to handle our problems alone, without asking God or others to help us? Why do we offer God suggestions on how to fix things rather than listen to God and trust the solution to him?
3. Do…
3. Do whatever Jesus tells you.
Following Jesus and doing what he tells us is the essence of discipleship.

"Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock…" (Matthew 7.24)

Jesus as Savior and Lord

"By confessing Jesus as Savior we may or may not necessarily be indicating a willingness to submit to His rule. By declaring Him to be Lord, we not only acknowledge that He is Savior, but we embrace His Kingdom and rule… for every area of our lives." A thoughtful article from BreakPoint.
For Reflection/Discussion
For Reflection/Discussion: Authentic followers of Jesus Christ acknowledge him as both Savior and Lord. What is the difference between Jesus as Savior and Jesus as Lord? Is it possible to accept Jesus as Savior (the one who saves us from our sins) without acknowledging him as Lord (the one who guides and directs our lives)? Someone has written, "If Jesus isn't Lord of all then he isn't Lord at all." Are there any areas in your life where Jesus isn't Lord?
4. Celebrate…
4. Celebrate the results with joy and gratitude!
For Reflection/Discussion
For Reflection/Discussion: How have you grown in faith through our REACH campaign? What have you learned about God, our church family, and yourself during the campaign? How has this campaign encouraged you about our future as a church family?

[This week is not the end of our efforts to REACH our community; it is in fact Day One, a new beginning. Pray, look for, and act on the opportunities God will give you to share your faith and invite people to StoneBridge.]
“Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime; therefore we must be saved by hope. Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore we must be saved by love.” ― Reinhold Niebuhr, The Irony of American History

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose. —Jim Elliot
