Use these questions to further explore the theme of the message:
Pray: If you look over the last year, what things come to your mind that you are thankful for? How can you praise God for how he has matured you in your walk with the Lord?
Speak: We had a pretty big focus on telling others about Jesus this year. Did you follow through with your commitment to speak to others about Jesus? Did you make a list of names of people who are close to you but far from God? If not, that is ok. Why not make a list today? Who do you know that needs to hear the good news about Jesus?
Grow: What is one sermon series, one message, one way in which you grew in your walk with Jesus this last year? How do you want to grow this next year?
Love: 1 Thessalonians 3.12 says, “May the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you.” How can your love increase for other believers in our church? at work? in your neighborhood? How can your love increase for non-believers in your circle?
