Finding Home in the Father's Heart - INTRO: The Journey Home

We are all on a journey home. A home where we know who we are, where we belong and why we exist. But the problem is, many are walking on the wrong path, the path away from Father God’s heart of love. In this message, the introduction to this series, you will get an overview of the foundational truths about your identity and the central motivation of Jesus’ ministry. SUGGESTED QUESTIONS AND ACTIVATION EXERCISE: Spend time together going through this exercise that will help you to see how the orphan mindset can easily shape your daily life without you even realising it. Pay attention to your FIRST and immediate response. There are two different responses to each category: The first will be how someone living like an ORPHAN responds and the second will be how a SON or DAUGHTER of God responds. • THE IMAGE OF GOD: Do you see God as a Master to obey OR a Father to love? • YOUR DEPENDENCY: Are you independent and self-reliant OR interdependent and acknowledge your need for God? • THEOLOGY: Do you live by the religious laws of God OR live by God’s law of Love? • SECURITY: Are you insecure, lacking peace OR do you live from a place of rest and peace? • NEED FOR APPROVAL: Do you strive for praise, approval and acceptance from people OR live as one who is totally accepted in God’s love and justified by grace? • MOTIVE FOR SERVICE: Do you need personal achievement to make you feel good about yourself and to impress God OR do you serve from a motivation of deep gratitude because you know you are unconditionally loved and accepted by God before doing anything? • VIEW OF AUTHORITY: Do you see authority as a source of pain and you find it hard to trust people OR are you respectful, honouring and giving room for God to use leaders to love and lead you? • VIEW OF CORRECTION: Do you find it hard to receive correction or admit you are wrong and get your feelings hurt easily OR do you see correction as a blessing that exposes your weaknesses and empowers you to live higher? • EXPRESSION OF LOVE: Are you guarded and see love as conditional that is based on performance, yours and others OR are you open, patient and able to express love where you lay down your own agenda to meet the needs of others? • SENSE OF GOD’S PRESENCE: Do you feel that God is distant and cannot be known intimately OR is God close and personal? • THE CHRISTIAN LIFE: Is walking with Jesus hard, laboured and difficult OR is walking with Jesus joyful, easy and light? • YOUR POSITION: Do you interact with God like a Servant and a Slave OR as a Child who has the rights of His family? • VISION: Do you strive with spiritual ambition, seek achievements to be known and desire to be treated as someone special OR is your daily experience lived from the Father’s unconditional love and see your life as a joyful representation of Him to the world around you? • FUTURE: Do you fight hard to get what you want OR do you live like someone who knows by experience what it means to live in your inheritance from God? Optional Questions to consider: 1. Why is your IDENTITY such an important aspect of your response to life, to God and to others? 2. What does the word “HOME” mean to you? How does it differ from the Home that God is offering you? 3. Why do many Christians struggle to know God as a Father? What gets in the way? 4. Read Romans 8:15-16. Why do some people interact with God like fearful slaves? What does it mean to approach Him as sons/daughters (i.e. what access does it give you)? 5. What part does Jesus have in your understanding of God as a Father? What part does Holy Spirit have in affirming this truth? 6. Read John 1:12. What does it mean that Jesus gave us THE RIGHT to become children of God? What difference does this make in how you pray? Worship? See your spiritual inheritance?
