Collide: When Grace Hits... Our Failures
Read Luke 22:31-62
“As Christians we never fail, we are just given opportunities to grow in Christ likeness… the choice is ours.” ~ Asil Treblig
Grace: God’s riches at Christ’s expense. All we need now, to live the abundant life.
Reclamation: God taking what seems like a failure from our perspective and turning it into a Kingdom success!
When grace hits our failures, reclamation can happen! But we have to…
Understand our condition. (vv.31, 32a)
Own our failures. (v.62)
See things from God’s perspective. (v.32b)
Learn from our mistakes.
Run to God.
Receive from God.
Remember a time when you failed at something. How did you feel about it? How do you feel now?
Read Gen.50:15-21. What do these verses tell us about God?
Read Gen.3:20-24. What did God do for Adam and Eve after their epic failure and why did He do it?
Recall as many failures in scripture as you can. What was the outcome of these failures? How did God react?
What failure in your life do you need to bring before God? Who can you encourage with God’s reclamation today?
