GUIDELINES FOR LIFE GROUPS – 19 May 2010

JOY IN BELIEVING – Part 2
 
Theme: We should not let anything take our eyes off the goal-knowing Jesus. Just like an athlete we need to be single minded in our training to achieve the result of finishing the race. We need to cut out anything that may be harmful and forsake anything that may distract us from being effective Christians.
 
Theme Scripture: Philippians 3:12-4:1
Ask the LG the following questions:
1.What are some of the common things that take our eyes off the goal?
-      How should we avoid these distractions that hold us back?
2.Why does our past seem to be one of the biggest distractions?
-      What does “Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead” mean to you personally?
-      What happens when we come to full realisation that we are forgiven?
3.Paul says in v15 that “All of us who are mature should take such a view of things” Maturity is a topic that is often raised in the bible – Why is it so important that we do not get stuck in our Christian walk on salvation but that we progress in our relationship with Him?
4.Close by reading v20-4:1. Encourage the group that we “stand firm in the Lord” by keeping our eyes firmly fixed on Jesus!
 
Ministry Time
Pray for those who feel hindered or distracted from achieving the goal of knowing Jesus. Pray for those who feel their past comes against them as a stumbling block from moving on to maturity in the Lord. Pray that we will always keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and “stand firm in the Lord”
