The Wrap-Up

We started our huddle times by thinking about all the things we can and cannot do 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We talked about how life seems so busy at times, so we looked at what we can do to Reset and Renew.

Sometimes we need a restart.  A reset starts when we learn to be still like Peter sitting in the boat listening to Jesus teach.  We cannot hear God properly without stopping and listening.

We must be open to what God tells us.  Remember that Peter had been fishing all night and Jesus told him to try one more time and let down the net.  Peter did what Jesus said and caught a lot of fish.  But that started with him being open to a word from Jesus.

Once you learn to be still and be open, you will be free.  Peter had learned to be free from his need to perform as the world expected.  He was called by Jesus to follow Him, which gave Peter a new identity and freedom to be who Peter was designed to be. 

When you have reset, you can then be renewed.  

This renewing comes with a new heart.  It will be a heart that desires to follow Jesus.  When you have a new heart, you want to live in a way that pleases God and shows Him to the world.

That new heart comes with a new purpose.  On the seashore, Jesus made breakfast and forgave Peter of the big mistakes he had made before.  Then, Jesus gave him a new purpose, which was to spread the message of Jesus everywhere.

But to chase the new purpose, we need a new power.  When we give ourselves to Jesus to forgive our sins, He puts the Holy Spirit in us which gives us what we need to pursue our purpose. 


Before all this resetting and renewing can take place, you must answer the big question we had last week.  

We talked about how God created us and He loves us.  We discussed that we have sin and that sin separates us from God.  But He provided a way to save us from our sins by having Jesus rescue us.  That left us with the question: Will you trust Jesus?

Remember that it is never too soon to answer that question.  If you have not answered that question, answer it soon.


Q: What was your favorite part about Team Huddle times? (wait for some answers)

Q: What will you do differently? What is God asking you to do? (wait for some answers)

I have enjoyed getting to know all of you through this season and through this huddle.  As we close our time in prayer, how about someone open us in prayer, and I will close it?
