SERMON: Genesis 16:1-13 “Why I Don’t Want Normal”

“Be careful what you wish for, especially it is for a return to normal.”

1. Where Have You Come From?

2. Where Are You At?

3. Where Are You Going?

“God is not calling us to our normal, but His!”
APPLICATION QUESTIONS:
1. Describe something you have taken for granted, only to realize in its absence how much you missed it? Why did you grow to take it for granted? How can you develop an attitude of appreciating that which is truly important in our lives, marriage, family, and worship?
2. What has the absence of a corporate gathering on Sunday taught you?
3. Review these times of crisis in Scripture and identify principles learned from them: Genesis 22:1-18; Daniel 6:16-24, 3:14-30; Luke 8:22-25, Luke 24:13-35; Acts 9:1-17.
4. What have you learned from the COVID crisis and how will you implement these principles in your life? What “normal” is God calling you away from? What “normal” is He calling you towards?
5. The call of a Christian is not to comfort and ease, but to discipleship and love. What does John 13:35 teach us about the heart of Christianity and its proof in our midst? How are you doing in this regard?
