Group Discussion & Life Challenge
Use these notes as discussion prompts for your group, or in your personal time with God.
Get to know each other. Connect, warm up to each other, fellowship.
Carry each other’s burdens. Share life’s challenges and practice Soul Care. Pray together.
- Share with the group an experience that helped shape/turn your life toward God.
- Read the scripture from John 21 together, and listen to the dialogue Jesus and Peter are having. Discuss how you think it would have felt to be present there on the beach for this breakfast.
- This is a good time to talk about and share with one another what works when trying to make time with God a routine. There is no right or wrong here, but it is an opportunity to learn from one another.
- Why do you think it was important for Jesus to make time to do this with Peter? What do we see in Peter’s life that we could say would be fruit from this conversation?
- What kind of conversations do you hope to be having more regularly with God, and how might you go about that this week?
Does anyone need clarity on something? Are there any big God questions you are wrestling with?
Celebrate life’s successes and God’s provision. Worship God’s presence. Time to brag about God.
Through the Bible in one Year
Join us in reading through the entire Bible in one year. Each day of this plan guides you through passages from both the Old and New Testaments, allowing you to see connections between the history of our faith, and the fulfillment of God’s redemptive plan. Readings average four chapters in length, so it is posible to do. When you use the YouVersion Bible App, you can even have the app read the Bible text to you – very useful when you are in the car or otherwise occupied with your hand.
All you need to do is click the link to the Bible Plan, which should lead you straight to the Bible app. Your two options are now (1) to read the plan on your own, one day at the time. Or (2) you can make it more fun and rewarding, by sharing the plan with one or more friends, and then even “Talk about it”.
