10,000 Minutes

Village Discussion:

Guide: Pray this prayer aloud with your Village: “Jesus, would you be with us today as we’re together? Amen.”

Guide: Now, ask a few people sitting in your group (by name): “Would you (name) be with us today as we’re together?”  then wait for their answer:)

Guide: Why did that last question feel so weird?

Guide: How many times have you prayed, “Jesus, please be with me/us/her/him today…”?

Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.”

Guide:

  • What does it mean, that God is always with us?

  • When do you find yourself talking to God? Day? Night?

  • What do you talk to God about?

  • If you’re aware of God always being with you, how does it change your attitude or actions? Why? or Why not?

  • What would it look like if you lived as though Jesus was alway with you and at work in all things? How would your day change?

You’re with Me
