Welcome to a New LifeGroup Session!

Before we jump into our study, let’s take a moment to remember that there are THREE things we want to see happen every time our LifeGroups gather:

– Movement towards Each Other
– Movement towards God
– Movement towards our Community

Our questions follow this same format. All of the questions are designed towards movement. We hope you enjoy your time together in your LifeGroup.
**Remember, our goal is to deepen our relationship with Jesus and each other. Use the questions that are help and skip the rest.

Faith In Action

Authentic Christianity is a faith that is mirrored in action and actions that are mirrored in Christ. The book of James is one of the most practical books in the Bible that is so relevant today. It is challenges our faith to be lived out!

Last Week:

How can I show love towards someone who views politics different than me?
What does a right relationship with God look like in my life?

Two Weeks Ago:

Read James 3:17. Pick one quality from that verse and look for ways to apply it this week.

Key Verse:

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.” James 4:10

Movement Towards Each Other (know the people in your group)
If you had to choose an age to live to, what would it be?

Movement Towards God (grow in your relationship with God)
When you were a kid, how old was an “old person”?
As an adult, same question.
Read James 4:13-14
Are you a goal oriented person?
What is a current goal you are pursuing?
Are goals bad?
Read those verses again and add verse 15
What do you think is the warning from James?
When can goals get us into trouble?
Read Psalm 37:4-5; Luke 10:27-28
Have you ever wondered what “God’s Will” is for your life?
Are there something things we know God wants us to do? Explain
How does someone find the answer to that question?
Read James 4:16-17; Luke 11:9-13
What happens when we tell God our plans instead of asking God for direction on His Plans for us?
What if our plans don’t align with God?
How will we know?
What if we don’t like the current plan God has for us?
Why do you think God has given you the talents and resources He has given you?
Read Proverbs 3:5-6
What does it mean for you personally to trust God?
When you look back on your life when you are “old”, what will matter most?
Is there something you know that God wants you to do that you are not doing?
Do you think God’s plan can be trusted?

Movement Towards Community (they see the change in you)

Is your life plan in alignment with God? Spend some this week talking to God about it.
