By February 17, 2014April 21st, 2020No Comments


Life Group Leader Reminders: 1) Continue to do attendance on our database. 2) Contact the people that has not been showing to life group to check in with them, see how they are doing, if they need anything.

  1. What did you learn from the Holy Spirit this Sunday? Any Bible verse that God spoke with you that you would like to share? Please explain why this verse spoke with you so much?

  2. Ask for 3 people to open the Bible in these 3 passages. Read Psalm 32:1-5, 1 John 1:9, and Ephesians 4:28, and talk about how to deal with guilt God’s way. (Answer: Admit, confess, change, & make it right when possible (Ex: Call the person you wronged, etc..))

  3. What happens to our sin after we admit, confess them to the Lord based on Psalm 32:1-2? (Answer: v1 Forgiven, covered, v2 Never again counted against us)

  4. Before following Jesus, what were some of the ways YOU (Not people out there- YOU) have tried to deal with guilt and shame that did not work? (Like numbing with drugs, alcohol,… pretending guilt was not there, lying to yourself)

  5. Conviction comes from God so that we would repent. Condemnation is from the devil so that we would be stuck on our past mistakes. What is the way God’s people should battle against the devil’s condemnation?
  6. Have you ever been attacked by the enemy while serving God? (Like accusing & condemning you of being a hypocrite because of your past, or other examples) If so, would mind sharing that with group?

  7. Read Luke 10:17 and talk about how the spiritual warfare is won. Can anyone give any example of recent spiritual warfare you had to battle with prayer in Jesus name? (Examples are: Simply not feeling like going to church or coming to the life group can be a form of spiritual warfare.

  8. Take a time to pray for one another the remaining time. Do you have anything that you feel guilt and shame that you would like to share with the group so that we can pray? (If you do not feel comfortable sharing with all of us, find at least one person to talk to that you trust, or even one of the pastors. The point is to make yourself vulnerable and let it out to receive prayer)
