For further discussion:
1. In Joshua 3:5 the children of Israel were instructed to “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.” What do you believe God expects when He says "Consecrate yourselves"? How might we apply that at Hope Church as we are looking for the Lord to do amazing things among us?
2. Pastor Mike shared that one of the greatest enemies of our Tomorrows is our comfort with Today. What can you do personally to avoid spiritual complacency?
3. Becoming a person who possesses tomorrow, who learns to truly follow Christ in obedience, means learning to submit to His timing. Have you ever felt that the Lord has your life in a holding pattern? How can you encourage others who may be experiencing the same type of season in their lives?
4. Submission involves "in honor preferring one another." Submission to God’s order is not designed to rank people above others. His design is such that all interests are served and all come to know victory. What are some practical ways that we can practice true Biblical submission within the context of our family, our workplace, our church?
5. Mother Teresa wrote "We are pencils in the hand of a writing God – sending love letters to the world." What message do you believe the world is hearing from the church at this moment? How can we better communicate the love of God? (Hint, the message is on submission)
