In his final session, David highlights a number of very practical implications for all we’ve learned in this journey about who Christ is right now, reigning and active in our lives and in our world.
Suggestions are made that can transform individual lives as well as the growth and ministry of churches. Above all, David lays out a unique but easily-implemented strategy for fostering and serving Christ Awakenings in individual lives and Christ Awakening movements in churches and communities.
His final appeal is for all participants to become what David calls “Messengers of Hope” for the rest of their lives. And in doing so, make the most strategic contribution any of us can make to spreading the fame and extending the reign of Christ...now.

Video 9:2 – In what practical ways can I respond to Christ’s supremacy today?
"Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry." - Colossians 3:1-5, 10-11
After Completing Your Video:
Pause: Spend a minute in silence, reflecting on today’s teaching. What was the most meaningful part for you? How did it speak to you?
Reflect: In what ways did today's teaching video give you greater reasons to put your hope in Christ alone -- for your life, for your church, for your generation? As well as for eternity?
Apply: What is one insight about the glory of Christ you gained today that you would like to share with one other believer before the day is over, in order to help that person gain a little bit larger vision of the greatness of Christ, too?
Pray: What would you like ask the Father to do in your life by His Spirit that would deepen some facet of your relationship to His glorious Son?
