Headline: Hometown Blues
Focus Scriptures: Matthew 15:53-58
The Point: Sometimes the people closest to us have trouble accepting who we have become. We are not alone in those moments, we share these hometown blues in common with Jesus. The fact is he went home with the intention of performing miracles, and setting the people closest to him free. But he couldn’t bless as much as he wanted to because the people from his past couldn’t let go of the past. They couldn’t see who he was, and what he was capable of. Sometimes we have that same experience with our friends, and –sometimes – with our family. But we have to understand that it’s not our job to help them to see us, it’s our job to continue to grow and to shine regardless.
1. Why is it hurtful when our crew can’t see who we have become?
2. What is one thing you can do this week to plant a seed of growth, encouragement, or insight to someone you love?
3. Ask God to water the seed you planted – and then let God do the growing.

Title-We must hide God’s word in our hearts
Text-Psalm 119 Verse 11
Synopsis- Often times, we let stuff harbor in our hearts that should not be there. We let bitterness, anger, malice, rage, and even reside in our hearts when they should not. As a result, it affects our relationships with people and progress in life. However, we must turn from those ways and turn to God’s word. Instead of hiding hate in our hearts, we should hide God’s word in our hearts. When one studies, mediates, reads, and prays God’s word; the miraculous is ableto happen in their and heart and in their life. Therefore, God’s word will replace that hate with hope. Hide God’s word in your heart and watch him blow your mind.

John4: 39-42 AMP
A New Woman’s New Beginning
In the text, we meet a woman and a community impacted directly and indirectly by the powerful presence of Jesus. First, the Samaritan Woman, also known as The Woman at the Well, has a personal encounter wherein she and Jesus engage in conversation that leads to her conversion. Following this life-changing experience, the woman returns to the village where she was somewhat of an outcast and shares that she met a man who “told her all the things she had done.” Can you imagine meeting Jesus and having this type of dialogue and then choosing to share that experience with others? Our text shows us that new beginnings are personal and communal. They include conversations that yield conversion and change that has ripple effects and impact the lives of those close to us, even if only by proximity. You and I also have the opportunity to bear fruit by sharing who the Lord has been to us and what the Lord has done for us. Remember that God knows you and the quality of fruit you can and will bear.
1.How can you be sure that your words and expressions of faith in Christ to inspire others to know God?
2.Who has shared their faith with you? Contact them, if possible, and thank them for participating in your new beginning then and share how your faith journey is going.
“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!”
On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria.
It’s Umbrella Time:
1. How can you prove whether it is or is not judgement?
2. Does God have to send trouble in order to use trouble?
3. Why does God send judgement in scripture?
4. The question is not is this the judgement of God, the question should be is there a case for the judgement of God in 2020.
As the house shifts, everyone who is connected to the house needs to be ready to shift.
Repent – Is not a negative, it is the first step to the positive.
