Discipleship group questions

Launching questions

  • Reflect on the fact that ‘The LORD our God, the LORD is one.’ (from Deuteronomy 6:4). What does it mean for the Lord to be your God?  What does it mean that He is ‘one’ (reflect on the nature of the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit)?
  • How would you describe your heart of love towards God? Toward your family (both who you live with and the broader community of faith)?

Encourage

  • Read Deuteronomy 6:4-9 aloud. How do these attributes of God inform your heart and actions toward your family?
  • Read Psalms 127-128 aloud. At your very core, who or what do you trust?  To help you, reflect on Jeremiah 17:5-8.  How does your trust inform your view of the future?

Challenge

  • God sees children as a blessing from Him, for the entire community of faith. Do you?  Why or why not?
  • How are you intentionally seeking to bless the next generation, both through your own children if you have them or through the children of our church family?
