Feb. 10 - If…Then (1 Sam. 12)
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: Can you think of a time when someone showed you grace, mercy, or forgiveness? How did that affect your relationship with them?
A way to pray: Pray that 2,000 people by 2022 here in North Platte & the surrounding areas will join in Jesus' new covenant – putting their faith in Him, being baptized, and growing in relationship with Him through the Word, prayer, and community. Pray by name for individuals you know who could be part of that 2,000.
Talk It Over:
Treasuring God: How do my daily habits and behaviors reflect my gratitude for God's covenant faithfulness? Am I regularly putting Him first?
Being Transformed: What habits could I ask God to grow in me – or root out of me – to help me love the Lord with my whole heart?
Loving Others: The cross allows God to judge me based on Christ's life and actions rather than mine. Who needs to know this? How can I tell them?
Pursuing Unity: How does knowing God's unconditional covenant with me, through Christ, push me to give undeserved favor to those who hurt me?
