Part 1 - Invite an Interruption (Clay Scroggins)
Family, friends, education, personal experience, politics, television, books, and the Internet—plenty of things influence how we see the world. But how does the way you see the world affect you? What if you’re missing a bigger picture? Acts 9:1-9; 26:14, 17-18
Part 2 - Money (Andy Stanley)
We see the world as we are taught to see it.
As a result, we hold to views that hold us back. But when we see as God sees, we are more inclined to do as God says. This is even true in the area of our finances. God sees money as a tool. He sees money as a test. He sees money as a trademark, indicating we belong to him. If we attune ourselves to his perspective, it can revolutionize the role of finances in our lives. John 14:7, Luke 16:1-15
Part 3 - Time (Andy Stanley)
God created us on purpose for his purpose.
We tend to view our time the same way we view our money. We can spend it, invest it, or waste it. But the truth is, our time is more precious than our money. At the end of our lives, many of us will spend a lot of money trying to buy more time. If someone offered to buy time from you, you probably wouldn’t sell. It’s too valuable. The question is: how does God view time? If we saw it as he sees it, it might affect the way we use our own. Psalm 90:1-6, 10-12
Part 4 - Three Little Words (Evan Mclaughlin)
Surrendered ambition is leveraged by God to create the best version of you.
When we think of the word ambition, we tend to think of driven people—CEOs and Type-A personalities. But we all have ambitions. Even if you weren’t wired with a hard-driving personality, you’ve experienced strong desires to do or achieve things. Our ambitions create desired destinations, but what happens when our circumstances threaten those desires? What does ambition look like when we try to see the world as God sees the world, and to do as God says? Matthew 26:36–42
Part 5 - Through the Eyes of a Lion (Levi Lusko)
Suffering is not an obstacle to you being used by God. It's an opportunity to be used like never before.
When we face pain and loss, they change the story we had planned for our lives. They end dreams. They change our perspective. They alter our desired destinations. Pain can knock us back on our heels and make us wonder how we can even make sense of our lives. What do you do when difficult circumstances challenge your perspective on life and God? What does pain look like when we try to see the world as God sees the world, and to do as God says?
2 Corinthians 4:16-18; Romans 8:19, 10:17, 2 Kings 6
