Conversation starter. Start light and fun conversation in your group about the series topic.
• Speak of a time when you were followed closely by someone. It might be a pet or your child, even a friend or employee.
Contemplate. Ask questions to get your group thinking about these principles.
• What are some reasons someone would follow another person?
• What are some reasons you should follow Jesus and how close should you follow?
Contribute. Ask questions that create personal openness in your group.
• Get the group talking about the marker they are living out the best and the one they struggle with most. Why?
• Have the groups talk about ways to keep this a relationship builder with Jesus rather than a checklist for the appearance of righteousness.
Cry out to God. Pray intensely for your group on the topic.
  Father, we surrender to Your ways and Your purpose for our lives. We believe that these 7 markers will help us be Your hands and feet and make it hard to get to hell from Yuma. So, I ask in Jesus’ name that You would empower me with the Holy Spirit to live out these markers for Your glory. Amen.
Commit to change. What’s a new area to grow with the Lord?
• I will commit to amplifying the growth I’m receiving with my favorite or most utilized marker.
• I will follow Jesus more closely in one new area.
