The Bottom Line
Discipleship group questions
- Read aloud the text from Sunday (Acts 16:6-19). What do you remember most from the teaching?
- Consider the most recent “big” decision you had to make. Describe your decision-making process. How does it compare to the principles discussed on Sunday? What might you do differently in the future?
- Would you add anything to the “principles for godly decision-making” discussed on Sunday?
- Read Romans 8:28-30 aloud together. Discuss the following statements: “God’s agenda is focused on our growth in godliness, faith, dependence, etc. and the good of others … whereas our agenda is often focused elsewhere.” How have you seen that conflict of agendas play out in your own story?
- Read Acts 20:22-24 aloud together. Discuss the following statements: “Easy isn’t always best and oftentimes the harder path is precisely where God is leading us.” Agree? Disagree? Give illustrations from your own life.
- Are you currently feeling “stuck” in the midst of a hard decision? What might it look like to “just do something”?
- Where are you currently avoiding the input of others in your own decision making? What counsel could you seek out from your Discipleship Group here and now?
- End your time by praying into the various decisions that have been discussed during your time together. Be specific in seeking God’s guidance for one another.
