Use the following game plan with your family, LifeGroup, or personal study this week. Allow this game plan to stimulate conversations with each other and with God.
Game Plan This Week:
- Review the sermon
o What were the main points?
o What points were most meaningful to you?
- Study/discuss the text
o Mark 8:31-38
o 1 Thessalonians 2:1-5
§ What lessons can we take from Paul and his team? (for example, the privilege of evangelism)
o Colossians 3:23-24
§ What should be our attitude while serving the Lord?
§ “Whatever you do” includes …? What makes these verses challenging? Our attitude or everything that “whatever” includes?
- Break into smaller groups and discuss these questions and pray for each other:
o Being bold for Christ is easy at church. In what settings is being bold most challenging? Why?
o What can we do to overcome these challenges?
o How can we use social media to be bold?
o How can social media be harmful to our witness?
- Pray for each other:
o Share with your group how you would have them pray for your soul? (For assurance of identity, boldness, etc)
o Share other needs in your life right now (employment, finances, relationships, family, health, etc.)
- This week make a commitment to sit down often with God and discuss the health of your soul.
o Ask God to strengthen, embolden, heal, and refresh your soul.
o Ask God to point out when and where you’re focus is in the wrong place.
