Welcome to a New LifeGroup Session!
Before we jump into our study, let's take a moment to remember that there are THREE things we want to see happen every time our LifeGroups gather:
- Movement towards Each Other
- Movement towards God
- Movement towards our Community
Our questions follow this same format. All of the questions are designed towards movement. We hope you enjoy your time together in your LifeGroup.
**Remember, our goal is to deepen our relationship with Jesus and each other. Use the questions that are help and skip the rest.
CURRENT SERIES: I Want to Believe, But...
It’s can be difficult to believe in a God we cannot see. We wonder why God didn’t answer our prayers, why God allows suffering, or why we can’t feel His presence. God may not meet all your expectations—but that’s good news! Find out why in a new series: I Want to Believe, But...
Two Weeks Ago:
Generosity is not natural, but it can be. Ask someone in your group to hold you accountable to implement that change you just mentioned.
Key Verse: “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?” Romans 8:35
Movement Towards Each Other (know the people in your group)
If we found you in a drive through, what drive through would it be?
Movement Towards God (grow in your relationship with God)
Do you remember when you had your first remote controlled TV?
What was that like?
What would TV be like if you didn't have a remote?
How are we as a society conditioned to be "on demand" or "instant gratification"?
If a company is slow in giving you what you want, how does that impact your feelings about that company?
What are some core things that you believe (non God related)?
How did you arrive at those beliefs?
Have those beliefs ever been challenged?
Read Romans 8:35, 37-39
How many of you know someone who does not believe in God?
How do you think they arrived at that conclusion?
How does God feel about you and me?
How do you know that?
Does God always give you what you want?
Then how can that be true?
Do you think we put expectations on God that we would not put on someone else? Explain
Read Isaiah 55:8-9; Proverbs 3:5-6; Ephesians 3:17-19
What does the Bible say about God?
Is that easy or difficult to believe?
What do you do in those moments when those beliefs are tested?
How would you answer someone who says they don't believe in God because He doesn't care about their needs?
Movement Towards Community (they see the change in you)
Make a list of what you believe to be true about God. Take time this week to thank God for who He is, and who He is not.
