What’s In Your Closet: What Not To Wear

What Not To Wear

1. Colossians 3:8 lists things we need to “put off”. Which of these characteristics do you need take off and throw out of your closet?

2. Colossians 3:10 talks of putting on “the new self”. For what “new” thing will you be known in 2010?

3. As we strive to “put on” the characteristics listed in Colossians 3:12-14, the price for not clothing ourselves appropriately is high. What are some of the costs for not exemplifying compassion, kindness, humility, and other traits?

4. Which of the characteristics do you need the most? Similar to Pastor Chris, is it patience? Is it forgiveness?

5. Describe a time when you saw these characteristics lived out in the life of someone you know.

6. How can you begin to put on the “new self” today, this week, this month, and in 2010?

Christmas Classics: Simeon

Simeon

1. Why do you come to church?

2. What are some reasons people do not come to church?

3. For what are you waiting on God to do? To show you? To provide for you?

4. Have you experienced a time when God spoke to you and then fulfilled His promise?

5. Has God asked you to do something that you did not want to do?

6. How do you think Mary felt when Simeon told her that her baby would one day be killed by the people he came to save?

Christmas Classics: How the Grinch Stole Christmas

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

1. Do you see Christmas as a Holy day or simply another holiday? Do your actions reflect your answer?

2. Early in his talk Pastor Chris posed the question ”Religion or relationship … Where are you?”. What is the difference? And where are you?

3. The three wise men, or kings, traveled a great distance to see the Christ child, requiring planning, determination, purpose, and sacrifice. How far are you willing to travel for Christ? What sacrifices do you expect to make to follow Christ?

4. At some point, the Grinch “got it”, the real meaning of Christmas. When did you “get it”? Who in your life needs to “get it”, and what one thing will you do to help?

5. The Grinch was changed. How have you been changed since Jesus came into your heart?
