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.
This is a one week message designed just for Easter
Who are you praying for that they would come to know God? What steps can you personally take to tell them about Him?
Two Weeks Ago:
Ask God to give you an opportunity this week to share with someone who doesn’t know about Him
“It was fitting to celebrate and be glad, for this your brother was dead, and is alive; he was lost, and is found.”” Luke 15:32
Movement Towards Each Other (know the people in your group)
Have you ever run away from home?
Movement Towards God (grow in your relationship with God)
How old were you when you moved out of your parents house?
What was that like (moving out)?
What do you think is the ideal age for kids to head out on their own? Explain
What was the freedom of being on your own like?
Read Luke 15:11-16
How has your view of “freedom” changed from then to now?
If you could go back in time and give yourself some advice before you moved out, what would it be?
Where did the prodigal son go wrong?
Has there ever been a time in your life where you thought you had it all figured out?
Read Luke 15:17-19
What is the difference between saying ”I’m sorry” and “Will you forgive me”?
How does humility give us perspective?
Read Luke 15:20-24; Luke 15:6-7; Luke 15:9-10
How did the dad know his son was coming home on that day?
What does this story say about the dad?
What does it mean to forgive someone?
What does it mean to be forgiven?
Are they the same?
Read Luke 15:25-32; Luke 15:20
What was the difference in their reaction?
Where was the brothers focus?
When someone wrongs us, is it easier to be like the brother or easier to be like the father?
How does God see us? Them?
How should this parable impact how we see other people?
Movement Towards Community (they see the change in you)
Are you withholding forgiveness from someone, whether they have asked for it or not? Talk to God about it. See them through His Eyes.
Food Truck Sunday is a few weeks away. Who are you praying for to invite to church?
