Life Group Questions

Announcement: 1)When you get to church try to scan the people in sanctuary/Venue and sit next to people that you think would be a good fit in your life group. When it is time to meet and greet try to start a relationship and invite them to life group.

2) Worship night May 30th 6:30-8pm (childcare is provided)

  1. God has promised us His peace.  Do you feel as though you have the peace of God in your life?  Why or why not?
  2. Read John 14:27.  God promises us a peace that is different from the world’s peace.  How is it different?  (See also John 16:33).
  3. Galatians 5:22 states that the peace of God is a fruit of the Spirit.  As such it needs to be cultivated.  How do you cultivate the peace of God in your life
  4. Read Philippians 4:6-7 & Romans 15:13.  So often we tell God about our fears and anxieties but we never surrender them to God and trust that He will work it out. (Think of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane when He was anxious and presented His fears unto God the Father—Matthew 26).  What fears are you willing or unwilling to surrender to God?  What would it look like if you trusted in God with those fears?  Would God let you down?  Can you trust God to give you His best even if it is not what you want?
  5. Read Philippians 4:8-9 and Romans 8:5-6.  Part of cultivating the peace of God in our lives is guarding our mind and focusing on God’s faithfulness.  Too often we focus on the negative and forget the blessings and faithfulness of God.  What are some miracles that God has done in the past that can bring you peace today?
  6. Read Hebrews 6:16-18.  How should this verse bring you encouragement and peace?
  7. What are you going to change or think differently because of this message?
