- Life Stages
These general questions are to be used by individuals or groups throughout the summer break.
1. Read the main passage from this week's sermon. Are you familiar with the book from which the passage is drawn? If not, read the introduction to the book in a study Bible or click HERE.
2. What do you see as the speaker's emphasis or main point in this week's sermon?
3. How does this sermon and main passage apply to you, and what is God directing you to change?
4. Which one of the seven stages of "Our Pathway" journey does the sermon and the main passage address? What actions can you take to implement this Pathway stage?
5. What about Jesus could be attractive to those who don't know Him? Who will you share Him with this week?
6. Invite someone over or share a meal with the intent to talk about this week's sermon. For example: What does it teach us about God or ourselves? What are some things we can do to stir our affections for the Lord?
"Great job!" "I am so proud of you!" "Way to go!" Some have known the power of these words spoken over them by a person they truly look up to. Expressions like "That's my boy!" or "That's my girl!" carry incredible significance in life. How much more the impact when God, the Creator of the Universe, rejoicingly speaks the words of "Well Done!" over you. This week's GROW Group Questions are a reflection on winning that moment with God.
Mine, mine, mine.... These words seem to repeatedly echo from the halls of households raising two and three year-olds. While many of us grew out of that language, not all of us grew out of that mindset. This week could be rewardingly uncomfortable as we examine whether 'mine' still has a place in our heart's language.
Who hasn't struggled with jealousy and had it consume them at some point? If you can't avoid it, then what do you do to handle it in a way that isn't going to wreck you? Gain insight as we look into I Samuel chapter 18 this week and examine the life of David and Saul. Explore the implications of why Jonathan and David's relationship was so strong in this week's GROW Group questions.
Isn't it strange how so many of our problems simply boil down to perspective? So much of our battle has to do with the way in which we see the world and the circumstances surrounding us. How do you view the challenges before you today? Gain insight and direction as we explore this week's GROW Group Questions based on I Samuel chapter 17.
What is a small group? Why would I want to be a part of one? I don't have time. Hear from one of our members about his recent conversation with someone on these very questions and objections. Listen as he lays bare his own journey and the answers he was brought to.
