Mar. 12 - Reversing the Cycle (Neh. 9)
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 one act of kindness you could do for someone in the coming week?
A way to pray: Pray for individuals in our lives who have never repented of their sin and turned to God, who need to be part of the 2000 people we want to see baptized and connected to Jesus through the Word, prayer, and community by 2022. Pray that we would have opportunities to share God's kindness with them, and that he would let this lead them to repentance.
- How have I seen the sin cycle play out practically – in the Bible, other historical situations, and/or my own life?
- How does God’s kindness lead us to repentance?
- How does God’s forgiveness empower us to love others? What does it look like to live this out practically?
- What is the difference between godly and worldly sorrow? between true and false repentance?
