Apr. 29 - Wrong Winning (1 Cor. 6:1-11)
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: What's a game you enjoy playing, win or lose?
A way to pray: Pray that we would pursue love, mutual submission, and humility in our relationships with one another. Pray that the way we live before unbelievers would reveal Christ rather than selfishness, and that God would use this witness to draw 2,000 people in our area into a growing relationship with Jesus by 2022.
Talk It Over:
- Treasuring God: How does our relationship with God empower us to "rather suffer wrong" and "rather be defrauded"?
- Being Transformed: Which "such were some of you" applies to me? What are a few tangible steps I can take to walk in new life in that area?
- Loving Others: What behaviors are condemned in this passage? How is each of these a failure to love, and what would the loving alternative be for each?
- Pursuing Unity: What does it look like practically for us to pursue unity when we have grievances against one another?
