Series: Joy

Conversation starter. Start light and fun conversation in your group about the series topic.

  • Read Gal. 5:22-23. Which fruit of the Spirit is God producing most in your life?
  • Which fruit do you hope starts to increase in your life? Why?

Contemplate. Ask questions to get your group thinking about these principles.

  • Read all the Philippians verses. In today’s world, what does it look like when a person puts Jesus first and others second with themselves last?

Contribute. Ask questions that create personal openness in your group.

  • To what, who, or where are you pouring your life? Is that pouring putting Jesus first and others second with yourself last?
  • The fruit are amplified as we surrender everything. Talk about an area of your life that you are afraid to lose and let Jesus have control.

Cry out to God. Pray intensely for your group on the topic.

Holy Spirit, please produce Your fruit out of us today: love, joy peace patience kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. For the glory of Jesus. We ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Commit to change. What’s a new area to grow with the Lord?

  • (If you don’t serve on Sundays) I will sign up this Sunday at First Step in the lobby to start serving.
  • (If you haven’t been baptized) I will come to church May 20th and be baptized.
  • I will find someone to pour into and help them grow in their character as a believer in Jesus.
  • I will find a way to give generously to others.
