It’s amazing what a remix can do. Take a familiar, even popular song, change the beat or modify the tune and something new emerges. Sometimes our lives can use a remix and sometimes even our church can too. The last few years at LifePoint have ushered in some of the biggest changes in our church’s history. Let’s talk about it. Welcome to REMIX: A New Rhythm for an Old Song.
The world is a big place. And the needs in our world are bigger than ever. When God works in the world He looks for people through whom He can pour His life and love. Our response to Jesus’ Great Commission finds us in different corners of the globe. But we didn’t fully anticipate the twist in the story. God is persistently leading us to address the plight of orphans in those places where we have influence.
For further thought and discussion:
- Read Matthew 28:19-20. What does it mean for you to “make disciples?” Why is it important for our church to have an influence beyond the borders of the United States to other parts of the world?
- When it comes to LifePoint’s work around the world, we often encourage our church family to give, go and pray. Why are all three of these actions important? How do you most often participate in our world outreach?
- Take a look at some biblical passages about orphans: James 1:27, Psalm 68:5, Deuteronomy 10:18. What do you notice about God’s priority for orphans
- In many ways orphans showed up on our church’s “doorstep.” God began opening doors for LifePoint to expand our care for orphans around the world. What are your reactions to our church’s emphasis on caring for orphans? What part can you play in helping to alleviate the orphan crisis in the world?
- Read Romans 8:15. What happens spiritually speaking when you place your faith in Jesus? What’s does this passage tell you about God’s heart for adoption?
- At LifePoint we have multiple outlets for child sponsorship. Have you considered sponsoring a child in another part of the world? Why would sponsorship be worth considerin
