UN*RELIGIOUS – ASSURANCE > (IS GREATER THAN) ANXIETY
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.
CURRENT SERIES: UN*RELIGIOUS – undoing religion in your life
Religion has always been man’s attempt to get to God. Jesus came so that, through him, we would have a personal relationship with God. Religion has some good virtues. However, religion can give a false sense of security for what we do for God instead of who we are because of what Christ has done for us.
Are there areas in your life that you don’t want Jesus to see? Who in your life needs to see you following Jesus?
