Are You Awake? 4.21.24

Main Idea/Summary
All of life is grace - we’re just not aware.

Scripture
Genesis 28:10-19

QUESTIONS

About God
Since we believe God is omnipresent, he’s with us in every moment. What is your initial reaction to this truth, and why?

About Me
Since we live in the “attention economy,” many things try to steal our awareness. What are you paying attention to that stirs more fear, anxiety, or anger in you? How could meditating on Isaiah 26:3 help you turn back to God?

Community
God-awareness creates more self-awareness and others-awareness. What can you do every day this week to increase your God-awareness, which will boost your self-awareness and overflow into others-awareness?

Mission
What if your attention is the greatest gift you can give to God? How will you make this your mission this week?

Action
Identify the main thing that decreases your awareness (TV, social media, etc.). Take a break from it this week, replacing it with prayer.

Father God, we praise you for the gift of your constant presence. We confess we are often so distracted by the things of this world and the desires of our hearts that we forget you are near. Yet you continually reach out to us in so many ways, and we want to start paying more attention. May our increased awareness of your presence help us become more self-aware so we can serve others with greater love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
