While We Wait: Abraham   

Abraham was given a promise: to be the father of a nation, which he heard as the promise of a coming son, an heir, progeny. He decided that waiting was too long. From Abraham, we learn one thing not to do while we wait, and that is to adopt a do-it-yourself plan. A form of that for us might be “getting ready for Jesus to come,” as if we could do that! What does that even mean?

This week’s #WholeLifeTakeAways:


  • What is your worst or most painful memory of having to wait? What makes you a poor or good waiter?
  • What do you think are some benefits of having to wait for something?
  • Going through COVID19 what waiting has been most frustrating?
  • How do you think you would have reacted in Abraham’s shoes to the initial call?
  • How can you not let waiting paralyze you?
  • How can Abraham’s mistakes, choices, failures encourage you?
  • When have God’s promises gotten fuzzy for you?
  • How can you live life in freedom of the promise?
  • How can you keep the promise in focus that Jesus is coming again?
  • How can you avoid slipping into a do it yourself plan for getting ready for Jesus to come?
