Process, journal or discuss the themes of this article - here's a few questions to get the ball rolling...
Welcome to the Weekend-Follow Up This is the group part of the Bible Challenge, so your questions are based on specific Bible passages from the weekend message. Each week, your group will discover what God might be saying to you, and how you can respond through a group discussion.
What is one high and one low from the past week? How would you say you’re feeling overall today? (Note: take time to pray for each other before you jump into the discussion once everyone shares. It’s a great way to transition from checking in with everyone to chatting about the weekend.)
What stood out to you most from the message?
Why do you think that stood out to you? What do you think God might be trying to say? (It’s ok if you’re just guessing. This will give you some space to process what it might be.)
What does the word freedom mean to you?
What might it look like to have more freedom in your life?
Do you feel like your guard’s up with God in any area of your life? Why or why not?
Have you sensed that God might be breaking down any of your walls yet? What does that feel like?
Read 1 John 4:18. How can you see yourself being “perfected in love?”
Why is it sometimes challenging to receive God’s love?
What do you think God might be trying to get your attention on this week? It could be the thing that stood out to you in the message, or something that happened.
What is one way you can receive God’s love or more freedom in that area of your life this week?
Now share a prayer request for the week — it could be related to what you shared earlier. Whoever loves taking notes can jot them down (and maybe put them in a group chat, if you have one). Make sure to go around the circle and pray for each other at the end of your meeting, and throughout the week.
