DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

START WITH A BRAINSTORM:

What is paradise to you? What do you envision when you think of paradise?

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

What is stress & anxiety? How would you define it?

What are some causes of stress & anxiety? (Circumstances, overcommitment, injustice, finances, consequences of poor decisions, etc)

Think back to a time of great stress & anxiety. What was happening? What were you feeling? What was going on in your heart at the time?

Is it sin to have the feeling of stress or anxiety? When do these “feelings” become sin? (Desire leads to deception leads to disobedience leads to death)

Read Philippians 4:6-7:

  • Brainstorm: As you read these verses, what one word stuck out to you?

  • What does Paul tell us to do when we experience stress or anxiety?

  • What does God promise us He will do?

Questions to ask yourself or pair up and answer with a partner:

  • What are you currently stressing about or what is making you anxious?

  • How have you confessed that to God? Have you made that known to God?

  • How do you think God would have you respond?

  • What do you need to do and when?

  • How can you pray for each other?

DISCUSS:

What is the gospel? 

Why is it so difficult for people to concisely understand what the gospel is?

Why is it important that we get the gospel right?

What are some practical ways that the gospel informs our everyday lives?

How is “surrendering our lives to Jesus” different from our commonly held cultural understanding of Christianity? (By cultural, think about the north Atlanta area).

How did the text speak of the glory that is to come?

If we keep glory at the forefront of our vision, how does that change how we live today?

1 Corinthians - July 28

LISTEN:

WATCH:

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

Talk about a time when someone shared a difficult truth with you. Did you immediately receive that truth with humility? 

How have you benefited from someone else pointing out something in your life?

Why do we often not take the time to share something that someone else needs to hear?

Should we share every truth we see in another persons’ life? How do we know when to point something out and when to remain silent?

How can we become better listeners?
