Opening: There comes a time in every Christians life when they hear or sense the call to GO. If you have, and you did, share your GO story. When did it happen? How did it happen? Where did you GO? What difference did it make?
Read Genesis 12:1-3. What reasons could Abram listed for not going? What excuses do we make to not GO when God calls? How is fear perhaps the biggest hinderance to GO?
Think ahead in the bible story, if you are familiar with the story of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: what blessings would Abram have forfeited had he not gone? Do you have any regrets about not going that you might share? (I know, super personal.)
Read Matthew 28:18-20. This passage is famously called "The Great Commission" and it's all about the GO. Going may not necessarily mean moving to a new country. How might you be faithful in fulfilling the command to GO in your life?
