Groups to encourage fellowship, discipleship and study...
Lifegroups are small groups of believers within the church that meet to deepen each others relationships with Christ and the body. Meetings typically occur once a week and are each very different. We encourage every attender at Lifepoint to get involved with a Lifegroup!
You Are Not Your Own - Kevin Johnston
You do not walk into Christianity and instantly become some seasoned Christian. The Holy Spirit works in you. The Holy Spirit works through you.
It can take your whole life to become a mature Christian. Our God is a living, tangible God. He will continue to shape and mold you until the day you die. He will never stop working in and through you.
Likewise, it is important for us to be seeking after Him diligently and faithfully to grow closer, to study His word, to engage with Him, and to engage with others in His name.
We are here to further His Kingdom and that is why Paul is pushing the church to grow, to be better, and to be more Christ-like.
Getting to Know One Another:
Read Matthew 22:37-39. How can you display love for your neighbor? How do you love your neighbor as yourself?
How does God use our talents and abilities to further His Kingdom? What is an area in the church where you can serve to help further His Kingdom?
Getting to Know the Word:
In 1st Corinthians 6:12, it says, “All things are permitted for me, but not all things are of benefit.” Knowing that you are free to make you own decisions, why do you still need to be careful of your actions?
Read 1st Corinthians 6:13. If food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, what is the body for? What does that mean?
Read 1st Corinthians 6:20. What did this verse mean to you?
Getting to Know God:
In 1st Corinthians 6:17, Paul says the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him. What does that mean to you?
Paul closes chapter 6 saying, “For you have been bought for a price…” How does this bring things into perspective for you?
What did I learn this week that I can put to use in my own life?
