Passage: Romans 5:1-11

Preacher: Dr. Colby E. Kinser



Read Romans 5:1-11. How can I best position myself for 2019? What does Jesus want me to surrender next?

With your family:

Set a few achievable goals with your kids (you included!) on ways you want to give more of your life to Jesus. Set yourself a reminder to talk about these goals once a month through 2019.

With your small group:

  1. Read Amos 9.
  2. What stands out to you in these verses? Why?
  3. What bothers you about these verses? Why?
  4. Discuss the self-reflection question above.
  5. Discuss openly how you feel about the idea of surrendering more and more to Jesus.
  6. Given this passage, what should you do this week?


Next week, we'll talk about what God has given us for 2019.
