April 25, 2017 | Romans 14:1-12

The meaning of life is discovered in relationship — with God, family, and others. Because we are broken people and fallen sinners, relationships are complicated.  But in Christ (and as a church) we’re given the opportunity not only to succeed but also to discover life and love as God designed. This process of discovery begins with each of us.

In what areas of your faith (or disputable matters) do you need to develop a greater personal belief or conviction? (See Galatians 1.10)

Why does the Apostle Paul warn us here against judging others (vs. 10-12)? (See I Corinthians 4.3-5)

What important truth does Jesus give us with regards to judging others (Matthew 7.3-5)?

What does this process of 'judging ourselves' look like in our lives (James 1.22-25)?

Commit Psalm 15 to memory this week and make it a personal prayer over the next seven weeks.

Prayer of the Week

This year READ 365 is offering an opportunity each week to pray for one of our supported missionary partners.

Our missionary this week is Mike Funk, U.S. Director of SEA Partners, which is dedicated to improving the lives of the Murle tribe in South Sudan through education, agriculture, water and most importantly, the gospel. Mike is tasked with increasing awareness of the work in Boma to raise funds for the projects and initiatives.

  • pray that the new school year in Boma would be a productive one with the number of students increasing and older students staying in school
  • pray that female students will continue their education, breaking the tradition of marrying at a young age
  • ask the Lord to install godly leaders in South Sudan that will make decisions that are in the best interest of their citizens
  • pray that civil unrest would come to an end and that life would be valued higher than greed and power

Jesus Revolution

The meaning of life is discovered in relationship. With God, our family, and with ourselves. Because we’re broken people, fallen sinners, relationships are difficult. Some would say impossible. But in Christ (and as a church) we’re given the opportunity not only to succeed but to discover life and love as God designed. Join us Sundays, April 23−June 4 as we take a deeper look into relationships and discover why This Is Us.
