Encouragement

  • What do you sense God doing in you that you need to respond to?

  • What do you sense God doing around you that you think he is inviting you into?

  • What do you sense God doing through you that you need courage for?

 

Prayer: Spend time as a group in prayer praising God for who He is and what He has done in and through Christ Jesus. Spend time as a group praying for the needs of those in your life and for those who do not know Jesus.

 

Accountability: At this time, the group may want to split into smaller, gendered groups.

  • Who are you in God’s eyes? Who are you in the eyes of this group?

  • What has Christ accomplished for you on the cross?

  • What has your time in God’s Word and prayer been like this week?

  • Have you consistently reflected the love of Christ to those in your life this week?

  • Where have you wrestled with temptation this week?

  • What strongholds have you wrestled with this week?

  • What steps will you take to avoid temptation?

  • Have you been 100% honest?

Prayer: Spend time as a group in prayer for anything that may have surfaced from the discussion/accountability time that you personally feel like needs to be brought before the Lord.
