ReDo - Living the Life God Intended for You

POINT 1: Providence always anticipates the greater good

POINT 2: Disappointments will ultimately define our discipleship

 


 



Discussion questions
Choose questions to get your group thinking and create openness:

  1. Begin your discussion with highlights from this Sunday’s sermon? What something that stood out to you? Share what you learned and how will it impact your life?
     
  2. What questions did this Sunday’s message raise? Share them in the group and offer your answers to each other’s questions.
     
  3. Have you ever asked the question, “God, what should I do with my life?” What was going on in your life during that time?
     
  4. Read Colossians 3:1-4. What does it mean for God to be your life rather than just a part of your life. What is the difference between asking, “God, what should I do with my life?” and “God, what should I do with your life that is within me?”
     
  5. Read Mark8:34-38. Jesus’ wisdom seems self-evident, so why is it so difficult to live out? What parts of your life do you think would change the most if you began following Jesus?
     
  6. Read Psalm 90:10-12. What does it mean to number our days?
     
  7. Talk about a time at work or in your family when you couldn’t focus on something important because your time was consumed by something urgent. How did the important thing suffer as a result? What urgent thing robs you of time to focus on your most important thing? What can you do to shift your priorities?

 


 


Prayer

  1. Pray for people who are infected with COVID-19 or facing quarantine.
  2. Pray for families adjusting to new ways of life.
  3. Pray for business owners and those facing financial strain.
