Apr. 8 - Wrong Revering (1 Cor. 1:10-17)
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 something you're passionate about (an author, an activity, a leader, an idea, a hobby, etc.)? Why is it important to you?
A way to pray: Pray for a deep unity in our church family – and all the churches in our area! – that would help others see Jesus alive in us and would draw 2,000 people by 2022 into a growing relationship with Him. (See John 13:34-35, 17:20-23.)
- Treasuring God: Why is Paul so passionate about keeping believers' focus on the gospel? (See especially v. 17; see also chapter 2:1-5.)
- Being Transformed: When have I been tempted to let differences lead to division? How does the gospel help me fight that temptation?
- Loving Others: How are divisions among believers a failure to love each other? How are these divisions also a failure to love unbelievers?
- Pursuing Unity: How are divisions among believers different from mere differences of opinion? How do we avoid divisions?
