CONVERSATION STARTERS
Conversation Starters help us dig deeper, connecting Sunday’s sermons with our Monday lives. These prompts have been designed to help Community Groups grow in their relationship with God, with one another, and with their neighbors. Please know that these questions are meant to be a resource to you. You do not have to follow them verbatim or get through them all. We trust you to know your group and to ask the questions based on your group needs.

1. What stood out to you from the sermon?

2. Read Philippians 2:12-13. How did the sermon clarify the way you understand the phrase “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling?”

3. Who or what do you think in your life is forming you the most in who you are becoming right now?

4. In Philippians 2:13, Paul says God is working in us for God’s own pleasure. What’s your response to the thought that God is pleased with how He is working in us?

5. As a community group, what are small ways we can ‘shine as lights in [our] world” (Philippians 2:15) this week?

PRAYER PROMPT
Pray that we would put ourselves in the path of God, and partner with Him so that we can also take pleasure in the work His doing in our lives. Pray that we would obey with joy, and without grumbling.

Prayer Requests

As a staff it is a privilege to pray for our congregation. Social distance does not change that! If you are in need of prayer click the link to fill out an online prayer request.

Psalm 34 (Taste And See)

Verse 1
I sought the Lord and He answered me
And delivered me from every fear
Those who look on Him are radiant
They'll never be ashamed
They'll never be ashamed

Verse 2
This poor man cried and the Lord heard me
And saved me from my enemies
The Son of God surrounds His saints
He will deliver them
He will deliver them

Chorus 1
Magnify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name together
Glorify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name forever

Verse 3
O taste and see that the Lord is good
O blessed is he who hides in Him
O fear the Lord O all you saints
He'll give you everything
He'll give you everything

Bridge
Let us bless the Lord
Every day and night
Never ending praise
May our incense rise

I searched the world but it couldn’t fill me
Man’s empty praise and treasures that fade are never enough

Then You came along and put me back together
And every desire is now satisfied, Here in Your love

Chorus1
Oh there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You
Lord there’s nothing, nothing is better than You

Verse3
I’m not afraid to show You my weakness
My failures and flaws, Lord, You’ve seen them all and You still
call me friend

Verse4
‘Cause the God of the mountain is the God of the valley
There’s not a place Your mercy and grace won’t find me again

Chorus2
Oh there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You
Lord there’s nothing, nothing is better than You
Oh there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You

Bridge1
You turn mourning to dancing
You give beauty for ashes
You turn shame into glory
You’re the only one who can

Bridge2
You turn graves into gardens
You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways
You’re the only one who can
You’re the only one who can

Chorus2
Oh there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You
Lord there’s nothing, nothing is better than You
Oh there’s nothing better than You
There’s nothing better than You
Lord there’s nothing, nothing is better than You

Bridge2
You turn graves into gardens
You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways
You’re the only one who can

ENDING
You’re the only one who can
You’re the only one who can

Take My Life And Let It Be

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated Lord to Thee
Take my moments and my days
Let them flow in ceaseless praise
Let them flow in ceaseless praise

Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee
Swift and beautiful for Thee

Chorus
All for Thee
All for Thee
All for Thee

Take my voice and let me sing
Always only for my King
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee
Filled with messages from Thee

Take my silver and my gold
Not a mite would I withhold
Take my intellect and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose
Every power as Thou shalt choose

Take my will and make it Thine
It shall be no longer mine
Take my heart it s Thine own
It shall be Thy royal throne
It shall be Thy royal throne

Take my love my Lord I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store
Take my - self and I will be
Ever only all for Thee
Ever only all for Thee

Francis Ridley Havergal | (arr./extra chorus R. Bonifield)

Title: Joy in Becoming
Scripture: Philippians 2:12-18
Speaker: Brent Nelsen, BrentN@christcommunitykc.org
>> Obedience is what our salvation demands.
>> Obedience is what God works among us.
“Life with God is not like a motorboat, where we are in control of the power and direction. But neither is it like a raft, where we just sit back and are carried along. It’s like sailing. While we can’t control the most important thing - the wind that makes us move - that doesn’t mean there is nothing left for us to do. We have to draw the sail and catch the wind.” - Rankin Wilbourne, Union With Christ
>> Obedience is what our neighbor needs.
