May 6 - Justifying Junk (1 Cor. 6:12-20)
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 is an example of something that is legal but not necessarily beneficial? (For example, eating only candy for every meal.)
A way to pray: Pray that we would focus on helping others and glorifying God in the way we use our bodies. Ask God to help us be winsome for Him in both our actions and our words as we seek to see 2,000 people connected in a growing relationship with Him by 2022.
Talk It Over:
- Treasuring God: What reasons does Paul give for why we should glorify God in our bodies? Which reason is most compelling to me?
- Being Transformed: What does it mean practically for me to glorify God in my body? What is one change He wants me to make right now?
- Loving Others: Why is it unloving to ask, "Is this permissible?" and loving to ask, "Is this helpful in glorifying God?" Which do I tend to ask?
- Pursuing Unity: How can we support each other in using our bodies to glorify God? What is one step I will take this week?
