Follow Along with the Message

  1. Doing Life

As a church family, we care about each other’s lives: what we’re celebrating, what we’re mourning, what decisions we are praying through, and everything in between 

(1 Thessalonians 2:8, Romans 12:10, 15). Suggested time: 10-20 minutes 

  • How are you doing? 
  • What can you thank God for this week?
  • When were you most aware of Jesus’ presence this week? When were you least aware of Jesus’ presence this week?
  • Do you have any practical needs?
  1. Jesus Centered

God uses His Word to reveal Himself to us, equip us to live the good life He’s designed for us, show us our sin, and strengthen us as we follow Him (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Colossians 1:9-12, and James 1:22-25). Suggested Time: 20-40 minutes 

(Sermon Discussion Questions)  

  • Romans 8:5-7 Speaks on those who live according to the flesh or to the spirit setting their mind on the fleshly desires or on things spiritually focused, respectively. What are you setting your mind on?
  • Romans 8‬:‭6 Specifically, details that “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
  • If you're focused on fleshy things, how do you believe you can have a change of mind? In what ways have you consecrated your mind to Christ to implement HIS desires and for you to be consistent in upholding a mindset of consecration?
  • How do we let GOD transform our lives by changing the way we think? Are there areas in your mind that are currently off-limits/inaccessible to GOD?
  •  In what ways are you turning those off-limit areas over to GOD to be renewed?
  • What tools/boundaries are you establishing in your walk with GOD  to capture every thought and make it captive to the Lord?
  • Have you been focusing on the genuine truth found in the scriptures to be able to readily spot the fraudulent doctrines we encounter?
  • How have you been or do you have a trusted spiritual companion to navigate life challenges?
  • Detail the negative narratives that you have been told or you have told yourself. How have you renewed your mind to turn those negative thoughts over to GOD?
  1. Engaging the Heart

Jesus calls us to walk in the light, confessing our sins to God and each other. God’s Spirit works through confession and community to lead us to repentance. (Romans 3:23-24, James 5:16 and 1 John 1:5-10) Suggested Time: 10-20 minutes 

  • How are you doing abiding with Jesus this week in Scripture and prayer? 
  • What sin do you need to confess to God? What are you struggling to trust Jesus with this week? How can you give Him control of it? (As people confess sin, make sure to remind one another of the good news Jesus offers.)
  1. Expanding the Kingdom

Just like God the Father sent Jesus on a mission of reconciliation for us, Jesus sends us out as ambassadors of His reconciliation. We are called to make disciples wherever we go. (John 20:21 and 2 Corinthians 5:18-20) Suggested time: 10-20 minutes

  • People: Who in your life can you be building with right now? What does that look like during this season? 
  • Plan: Are there any rhythms planned (virtual or in-person) that we can invite these friends into? What spiritual conversations do you want to initiate with them soon? 
  • Pray: Let’s pray for our people by name; pray for their needs, opportunities to connect, and opportunities to have spiritual conversations that help them take next steps toward Jesus.
