Scripture Passage: Philippians 1:12-14

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Are you trying to face your hard times alone? Yes, we should ALWAYS rely on God, but have you sought help from others? Why not?

As Christians, our decisions will be different than others. Pastor Steven says this: “Our focus is not meant to be representative of our circumstances.

How can you stay focused?
1. Read your bible
2. Pray pray pray
3. Exist in community

STAY FOCUSED BY SHARING THE GOSPEL

How is the world going to know Jesus if we don’t tell them? Pastor Steven says this: “Don’t allow someone’s lack of faith or other religion stop you from sharing the Gospel. Not everyone will agree with you but that shouldn’t stop you from trying.”
