DISCUSS: What did I learn in the Sunday School lesson and sermon about “Sharing Our Story?”
Meditate upon (Mt 28:16-20; Phil 3:4-16; Acts 7:58-8:1,9:1-22) using 2PROAPT (on the back or at the bottom if online). Be still before Him and think about what you have just read; Listen to Him.

Intimacy with God: Your Quiet Time –2PROAPT
Two key elements in having intimacy with God are prayer and the Word. We come to the Word of God not just to read it, but to understand what He is saying to us and to determine how He wants us to apply it to our lives; asking Him for the strength and will to apply it. Finally, writing it down and sharing it with another so that they might also learn.
Study a short passage (couple of paragraphs) using an acrostic called: 2PROAPT.
