It Starts with a Conversation

Most Important Things –
Faith

First, Seek Him...

As we focus our vision on what’s most important to God, the first thing we consider is faith. This is what matters to Him and pleases Him. What does faith look like in your life, right now, today?

...Then Speak Him

Faith is the hinge upon with the door of our lives open and closes. If this is important in your life, how will you introduce your loved ones to faith? As you SEEK HIM, start with a story about your faith to SPEAK HIM into their lives.

Hebrews 11:6
“Without FAITH it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”

Word

God, What Are You Saying To Me?

Discover:  Whether they admit it or not, everybody has faith in something. As Christians, our faith is in the God of the Bible. We believe the Bible teaches us who He is and what He promises to do. FAITH is believing in God’s Word that He is who He says He is and that He will do what He says He will do.  

Dialogue: What or who do people put their faith in? Why would you put your faith in the God of the Bible? What are some questions about faith you have today?

Dive In: Let’s take turns opening and closing a door. Do you see the hinge? It holds the door in place and enables it to open and close. If the door represents our lives, then the hinge represents our faith. As a family, what we say, do and believe is based on the “hinge” of our FAITH in God and His Word. Let the doors you see this week remind you of how important faith is in your life.

Hebrews 11:6
“Without FAITH it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”

Why

 God, Why Does This Matter?

Discover: The Bible says it is impossible to please God without FAITH. You cannot please Him without believing He exists and seeking Him. This is what matters to Him most. 

Dialogue: Why do you think FAITH pleases God so much? What happens if we don’t have FAITH in God? What happens if we do?

Dive In: Discipleship conversations are one way we live out our faith. Talking about God and His Word helps us put our faith into action by seeking Him together.

Hebrews 11:6
“Without FAITH it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”

What

 God, What Else Does Your Word Say About This?

Discover: Hebrews chapter 11 is sometimes called “The Hall of Faith.” Just like there are sports Halls of Fame recognizing outstanding athletes, Hebrews’ Hall of Faith recognizes outstanding godly people. God wants us to be encouraged by their examples of believing in and seeking Him.

Dialogue: Who are some people of faith in our lives? Let’s talk about how they set an example for us. How do YOU set an example for faith?

Dive In: Let’s look at some of the names in the Hebrews 11 Hall of Faith. As we look at these examples of faith, how can we be examples of faith today?

Hebrews 11:6
“Without FAITH it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”

Worship

God, How do you want me to respond to this truth?

Discover: The Bible says, “Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith” (Hebrews 12:1b). “Fixing our eyes on Jesus” means having 20/20 vision for Him. God calls us to run the race of FAITH, not just believing in Him with our hearts but living for Him with our lives. This is how we worship Him!

Dialogue: Putting faith into action is letting the belief in your heart affect the way you live your life. How did you run the race of faith yesterday? How does God want you to make this more important in your life this year? 

Dive In: FAITH is believing God is who He says He is; being FAITHFUL is being who He created us to be. Let’s each pray over our family as we run the race of faith this year.
