Beyond The Reef
At The Movies: Home Edition – Part 4
July 11-12, 2020
Cody Kiwaczyk, Dr. Jeffrey Allen Love, Sheri Marsden
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10 (p.896)
- God Created Me For A Purpose.
When living out our purpose, remember:
- It begins with trust.
“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19 (p.550)
- It requires action.
“So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.” James 2:17 (p.931)
- We must do it together.
“Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.” Hebrews 10:24 (p.926)
Next Step: This week I will live out my purpose daily through taking action with the 7 Day At Home Adventure Guide.

Use this Discussion Guide to dig deeper into the principles from the weekend talk. Our Life Groups will use them, but we encourage you to discuss them with your family, over the phone or online with friends.
- Who determines who we need to be?
- What other things in our life can steer who we are?
- When we talk about purpose, what comes to mind?
- Looking back at your Talk Notes, was there anything you heard in the service that stood out or maybe even confused you?
Discussion Starters from the Weekend Talk
Refer to the Talk Notes and related Bible verses from this Weekend’s Talk Notes.

- The pastors discussed three points to remember when we’re living out our purpose: It begins with trust, it requires action, and we must do it together.
- Is it difficult to trust that God will guide you and make new paths for you? Why?
- What purpose has God given you to live out and how has He provided for you?
- In what ways have you embraced your purpose and lived it out?
- Have you tried to shy away from the purpose God is giving you? What was stopping you from living it out?
- Is it easier to live out the purpose God gives you when you’re doing it alone or together?
- How much better is the adventure of our purpose when we live it out with others?
- Tell of a time you lived out your purpose with someone else and how great it felt!

- Pray for yourself and others in your group that God would reveal His purpose for everyone’s lives. Pray that the purpose is full of adventure, trust, action, and that it involves others.
