Reclaiming My Relationship with God  -

BIG IDEA It is time to take back ground we have lost in our relationship with God.


SUMMARY In order to pioneer, we must reclaim ground that has been lost. The hardest ground to take is the ground we once had victory over and somewhere along the way lost it. When we have the courage to reclaim what we lost it becomes even better than before. Purpose lost and brought back has a richness, beauty, depth, and character that it never had before. When we run back to a place that God has told us to leave, it is always fruitless. Jesus is constantly drawing us back with love and grace. In the end, it doesn't matter why we lost ground, it matters what we are going to do about it and how we are going to move forward. Who is how we get the ground back. The Who Is Jesus. Following Jesus is how we pioneer new ground, steward the ground we already have, and take back the ground we lost. Stop running, start reclaiming. In Jesus’ name, it is time to take things back!

 KEY POINTS How we lose ground: 1. Things We Do (1 Peter 2:25) 2. Things That Have Been Done to Us (Genesis 50:20) 3. Circumstances Beyond Our Control (John 16:33) 4. Disappointment with God (Matthew 11:6)

 KEY QUOTES  - “Pioneers take new ground while maintaining and stewarding old ground.” - “When we reclaim what we lost, it’s better than it was before.” - “Don’t let other people’s failures keep you from God’s freedom.” - “Don’t let what you can see by sight steal the ground you took by faith.” - “Following Jesus is how we get back the ground we lost.”  


DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 1. On a scale of Non Existent to Best It’s Ever Been, where are you in your relationship with God?  2. Where have you lost ground (prayer, passion for God’s Word, purpose, desire, leading, serving, giving…)? 3. What has caused you to lose ground in your relationship with God? 4. What is your next step to take back what was lost?

 ENGAGEMENT POINT  Right now, as a group, take turns individually to pray out loud with a big faith that God is going to reclaim what has been lost in your life.
