Apr. 9 - Demand or Plea? (Lk. 23:32-43)
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: Do you prefer to plan things out or to take life as it comes? What do you do when you're put in a situation where you have to do the opposite of the one you prefer?
A way to pray: See this week's final discussion question.
- What are some things people commonly demand from God? What do I tend to demand?
- How can we grow in preferring God's will to our own, rather than simply demanding our own way?
- When is a time that I didn't get my way and later was glad I didn't?
- What's something I'm asking God for right now? (Pray these things for each other in the group.)
