Life Notes: Dream a Little Dream
Icebreaker: What is the best dream you can remember having?
Read Gen. 37:5-11
Why do you think having a dream from God will bring opposition to you? What is your reaction to things that bring opposition? Do they make you feel like continuing or stopping?
How do you think God can use evil and opposition to bring us to where he wants us? How did he do it with Joseph?
Why is it important to be in community with others when you have a dream to move into?
Can you envision the vision Chad described he has for Ingleside? Take a moment to sit and imagine everyone taking care of each other here and a neighborhood on fire for God. How does it make you feel? Do you feel excited about it? Do you feel any opposition to this vision? What does it make you want to do next?
What dreams do you have that you feel are God given? Why do we need the Holy Spirit to fill us with his fire to enable a God given dream? What do you think would happen if we tried to make our dreams happen without him? How would that feel physically? Spiritually?
If everyone has not received the baptism of the Holy Spirit start to pray together that each one would experience it.
