Feb. 17 - Behold the King (1 Sam. 13)
First listen to the sermon (posts Sun. afternoon). Then use the ideas below to help you and your group apply what the Lord is teaching you.
Icebreaker idea: Share about a time you had to wait for something. Was it worth the wait? Why or why not?
A way to pray: Pray for each other and our whole church family to grow in reflecting God's character to those around us as we seek to see 2,000 people by 2022 baptized and growing in relationship with Jesus through the Word, prayer, and community.
Talk It Over:
Treasuring God: In what ways do I treasure the opinions of people around me more than I treasure God's opinion? What can I do differently to love God more?
Being Transformed: How does impatience manifest itself in my life? How might God be at work building patience into my life?
Loving Others: In what ways has the fear of others' opinions impacted my ability to love them authentically?
Pursuing Unity: How does reminding myself of Jesus' gift on the cross help me pursue unity with other believers – especially ones who are difficult to engage?
