Be Renewed – Week Four

Sunday, May 15

Be Renewed in my STRENGTH… powered by HOPE

Key Passage: Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

31...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like
 eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Group Discussion:

  1. How does hope in the Lord enable “renewed strength”?
  2. In a practical way, describe how faith today might be reflected as soaring on eagles’ wings. In other words, what does soaring look like today?
  3. Describe some moments of your faith journey in which you ran and were not found weary.
  4. At times, life comes at us, and the best we can do is just walk and not faint. Talk about that as a group.
  5. How will “renewed strength,” facilitated by hope, empower you to take the next step in the Giving Discipleship Journey?

Personal Reflection:

  1. Can you name a time where hope in the Lord renewed your strength?
  2. Remember a moment in your life where renewed strength had you soar like an eagle.
  3. Think about a time when walking and not fainting was an absolute feat of strength itself.
  4. You and your church are getting ready to make some generosity decisions that will impact your future and your church’s future. Pray
