Mar. 17 - Power Sign (Jn. 4:46-54)
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: If you could ask God for one miracle right now, what would it be?
A way to pray: Pray for the things shared in the icebreaker, asking God for His will in those situations and for the grace to want the Giver more than the gifts and to want His will more than our own. (Not that we want the gifts less but that we want Him even more.)
Talk It Over:
Treasuring God: When have I seen God's power at work to bring me a good gift? How can this help me cherish Him more than the gifts He gives me?
Being Transformed: How do my actions demonstrate that I have truly believed Jesus' words? In what ways can it be hard to trust Him?
Loving Others: Do I see people as a means to an end or do I truly love them? How can loving the Giver change the way I love others?
Pursuing Unity: In what practical ways does loving God (not just His gifts) grow our unity as believers? How does our unity grow our love for Him?
