Dear Leader,

God bless you for 2016!

We are trusting that our Life Group members will "Be the church". Our prayer is that the Holy Spirit will move powerfully in our Life Group meetings, and that people will be transformed (to become more and more like Jesus), equipped (for the works of the ministry), and sent into God's harvest field (having a Kingdom influence wherever they go.)

May you experience great joy as you partner with God in shepherding His flock and expanding His Kingdom. You are anointed!

LIFE GROUP GUIDELINE

Ice-Breaker;
Allow time for a check-in, giving each person a chance to share on the following:
Their family;
Something they are thankful for; and
Something they are trusting God for.

Opening Scripture
Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NLT)
"But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit."

Prayer
As the leader, start off the year with a faith-filled prayer.
You may wish to encourage your Life Group to kneel in prayer, consecrating themselves to the Lord and offering themselves afresh for His Kingdom service.

Worship

Life Group Topic – Kingdom influence

Introduction

Ask who was at church this past Sunday as John cast vision for the year in his sermon titled Kingdom Influence – Lord extend your Kingdom through me.

God is wanting to bring about increased Kingdom influence through this local church;
God is wanting to bring about increased Kingdom influence through your individual life;
God is inviting us to partner with him in His incredible plan of extending His Kingdom.

Scripture readings (Ask different people to read out these scriptures.)

Isaiah 9:6-7
Daniel 2:44
Matthew 3:1-2
Matthew 10:7-9

Discussion

Which of the scriptures stood out for you and why?

Reflect on the fact that Jesus is King. He has complete authority to rule and reign. How can this knowledge impact our attitude and approach to 2016?

The Bible says that the Kingdom of God is advancing, increasing, and will endure forever. Share about areas where you are trusting to see His kingdom advance, His rule and reign, His righteousness, His peace, His joy.

Do you believe that the Lord wants to extend His Kingdom through you? How do you think the Lord could use you to bring about Kingdom influence in those areas you mentioned in the previous question?

Point to Ponder

As a Life Group let's 'Be the church', let's trust the Holy Spirit to work in our lives so that we can be transformed (to become more and more like Jesus, equipped (for the works of the ministry), and sent into God's harvest field (having a Kingdom influence wherever we go.)

Prayer time (1 Peter 3:12a)
Ask for prayer needs? Try keep a prayer journal going so that you can document testimonies and give thanks to the Lord for answered prayers.
Depending on time, pray into the needs or allocate prayer needs to different people to pray for.

Warm Regards

Life Group Coordinator
