Main Idea: Go ALL iN for change in 2020!
Click on the picture below to watch with your group:
In your group, share one thing you are excited, praying, hoping, and asking God to do in 2020.
Primary Scriptures: Acts 3:1-10, Ephesians 3:20-21
- Read Acts 3:1-10. In verse 4, Peter commands the man to look at him. What gets your attention? The loudest voice in the room? The most important email in your inbox?
- The man gave his attention because he was expecting to get something. Is this why we give God attention? Do we love God the most, or do we love what He can do for us? Will we love Him even if the change in our lives is not what we expect?
- The lame man at the temple gate got more than he asked for. Read Ephesians 3:20-21. What hope does this give you for God’s work in your life?
- Acts 3:10 says, “they were filled with wonder and amazement.” What was the last thing God did that filled you with wonder and amazement?
Discovery Bible Method:
For deeper study, as an alternative to the questions above, read Acts 3:1-10 and use the Discovery Bible Method to explore the passage.
Suggestion: Consider breaking the group into twos or threes for this section.
The man at the temple gate was begging for “change,” but what he got was life change. At the start of our discussion, we shared what we are excited about God doing in 2020. Are you truly ALL iN praying for that change and working toward that change? How are you working toward that change? If you are stuck, what is holding you back? Pray for each other.
Engage the World Around Us
Engaging at Faith Promise: This past weekend was Fusion weekend at Faith Promise. Hundreds of students and leaders sought change in their lives and in their schools. Do you have a heart for changing the next generation? Talk with your campus fpStudents pastor about serving Wednesday nights. If you can’t commit to serve every week, commit to pray for a specific group of students and their group leaders.
Engaging in Community and the World: This weekend we saw pictures of the GoGlobal boxes of supplies that Faith Promise sent to the Bahamas to aid recovery from Hurricane Dorian. Continue to pray for those in the Bahamas, and check out our upcoming mission trip to the Bahamas at https://faithpromise.org/missions/bahamas.
Expand God’s Kingdom
Think about the answers you heard to question 4. God’s work in our lives causes wonder and amazement! Is there someone you could share this with in the coming week?
ALL groups at Faith Promise should follow Jesus Christ and lead others to do the same. Below are the marks of a growing follower and disciple of Jesus.
– A follower of Jesus desires to encounter God through the deeper study and application of God’s Word.
– A follower of Jesus embraces people and values relationships on a deeper level so everyone can grow together.
– A follower of Jesus engages and serves the world around them and in their community, through local partners or God-directed opportunities.
– A follower of Jesus expands God’s Kingdom through development and multiplication of disciple-makers, possibly to lead more groups at Faith Promise.
