We invite you to ponder the week’s Bible passage and 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 that you appreciate in your life, that you didn't earn for yourself or accomplish by your own strength or smarts?
A way to pray: Pray for one another to grow in peacefulness in the areas of anxiety/worry/fear shared in the discussion below.
Talk It Over:
Treasuring God: What aspects of God's character most help me resist the grip of anxiety? How can focusing on His greatness lessen my own worries?
Being Transformed: Which of Jesus' commands speak(s) to the anxiety I experience? How might I reorient my heart to transform anxiety into peacefulness?
Loving Others: In what ways does anxiety/worry/fear rob me of the ability to love others as I'm called to love them? What needs to change in me?
Pursuing Unity: How does Satan use anxiety/worry/fear as weapons of division (esp. inside the church)? How does this motivate me to fight to be unified?
