My One Thing

1 Timothy 5:8 ESV


But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Jeremiah 31:17 NLT


17 There is hope for your future,” says the Lord.

    “Your children will come again to their own land.

Matthew 28:18-20 TLB


18 He told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and earth. 19 Therefore go and make disciples in all the nations,[a] baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and then teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you; and be sure of this—that I am with you always, even to the end of the world.

Questions to ask yourself:


What is the more that God has for me? 

What is my next step?

Matthew 25:1-13 NLT


25 “Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids[a] who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps, but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil. When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep.

“At midnight they were roused by the shout, ‘Look, the bridegroom is coming! Come out and meet him!’

“All the bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps. Then the five foolish ones asked the others, ‘Please give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.’

“But the others replied, ‘We don’t have enough for all of us. Go to a shop and buy some for yourselves.’

10 “But while they were gone to buy oil, the bridegroom came. Then those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked. 11 Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, ‘Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!’

12 “But he called back, ‘Believe me, I don’t know you!’

13 “So you, too, must keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of my return.


Ephesians 3:20 MSG


19-22 That’s plain enough, isn’t it? You’re no longer wandering exiles. This kingdom of faith is now your home country. You’re no longer strangers or outsiders. You belong here, with as much right to the name Christian as anyone. God is building a home. He’s using us all—irrespective of how we got here—in what he is building. He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he’s using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together. We see it taking shape day after day—a holy temple built by God, all of us built into it, a temple in which God is quite at home.



·      Let God work deeply within you so that you can be DEEPLY rooted!


·      Who are you becoming?


·      Who we are becoming or what God’s doing on the inside of us is more important than what’s happening to us or for us.

Talk It Over Questions

God Has More


1.If you had only one thing you could eat for the rest of your life what would it be & why?


2.What stood out to you in this week’s sermon? What questions or thoughts did it raise in your mind?


3.When you read Matthew 28:18-20 (The Great Commission) what sticks out to you the most? Why?


4.This week Ps Chad told us “God Has More” for us. As we get ready to start a 75 day journey as a church where do you believe God has more for you? 


5.Before the 75 day journey begins we would like to encourage you to ask the Lord, “What area of my life (physical, spiritual, relational, emotional, financial) do I need to focus on”. And as the Lord starts to show you write that down and begin to pray over it. Talk to your Table Group about it.
