Dear Leader

Please find below the Life Group Guideline for this week.

Life Group Guideline

Topic – Found in the Truth

Icebreaker:
What one word comes to your mind when you think about the disciple Peter.

Scripture Reading:
1 Peter 3:8-16

Opening Prayer:

Worship:

Discussion points:

1. Think about the disciple Peter and discuss how he changed from the Peter we see in the Gospels to the Peter we read about in the book of Acts.
Read 1 Peter 3:8-16 again and consider that this portion of scripture was written by the same Peter. Peter would have written this text under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, but ponder on the depth of maturity Peter we see in Peter as reflected through this passage.

3. We need to model the attitude and example of Christ in order to become credible witnesses.
Reflect on verse 16 "If people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ."
Living a good life and demonstrating good conduct still speaks volumes to people. Don't underestimate the power of your example. The world is looking for authentic Christianity.

Read through the following list of words and phrases in the text and ask each person to mention one or two they feel exemplify a Christ like life.
- compassion
- love one another
- tender-hearted
- don't seek revenge
- bless those who harm you
- refrain your tongue from evil
- do good
- seek peace
- be gentle
- be respectful
- display good conduct

4. How do you feel when you hear the following quote that was reputably to have been stated by Ghandi, 'I like your Christ, but I do not like your Christians, because your Christians are so unlike your Christ.'
Have you ever experienced a professing Christian that has not been a good example of a Christ follower?
In what situations do you find it difficult to live like Jesus in word and deed?

5. Read 2 Cor 5:20 about being ambassadors for Christ. What one thing can you do differently at your workplace in the week ahead that would make you a better ambassador for the Lord?

6. As we become credible witnesses then people will ask the reason for our hope.
We need to speak up, people need to hear words of life from us. Living a Christian lifestyle is important but there are also times where we need to speak out and witness and tell people what Jesus means to you.
Read 1 Peter 3:15 and discuss in your group.
Allow time for anyone to share a testimony of when they witnessed to someone.
