What causes us to move when we’re stuck? What helps us to realize a change is needed? What inspires us to live more fully into our identity as God’s beloved? Catalysts.

A catalyst can be defined as “a condition, event, or person that is the cause of an important change.” As followers of Jesus, we can either choose to ignore the catalysts in our lives that move us closer to Christ, or we can embrace the messiness of change.

This VIVA! series will have your group examine how catalysts in scripture demonstrate real-life implications for us as they talk and explore.

Week 1: Peter’s Vision: What happens when everything you thought was rigid and true opens up into freedom and new possibilities? Explore the vision God gives to Peter in Acts 10 and its complicated results involving supposedly unclean visitors.

Week 2: The Bleeding Woman: Sometimes a catalyst in one’s life comes at a low point: a time of isolation, sadness, confusion, or deep need—yet help may be just an arm’s length away.

Week 3: The Rich Young Ruler: When presented with a catalyst, it is entirely possible to ignore it and walk away.

Week 4: Nicodemus: It might do us all a lot of good to look at the long game when it comes to the catalysts in our faith and trust that forward movement, even if slow at times, is still movement toward God.

Free Ebook by Doug Fields

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
