D-GROUPS

Welcome to the D-Group Leaders' resource page. What follows is a simple, transferable template for a typical one-hour D-Group:

READ

RESPOND

REVIEW

Take the first few minutes to catch up and follow up from your last meeting. Helpful questions are, “What did

you take away from last time?” [Refer to last week’s responses.] “How did that go?”

The Bible is our source for knowing and following God. A typical Bible study follows a pattern of Truth, Repentance and Faith. To help with this, use the sermon recap and questions below. 

Help people focus on growing all of their primary relationships: “Ask God, how can today’s discussion further my relationship with God, one another, and the world?” Pray together. [Record responses and prayer requests.]

Key Passage: Genesis 12:1-4

Sermon Summary

This series explores how our choices matter. Rather than live in the past or future; God invites us to live in faith and love today. By examining the choices various Bible characters made, we can discover the importance of our own decisions. This week, we looked at Abram, who left the safety and familiarity of his own circumstances, people, and resources, to embark on a journey of faith. That faith-decision was not just a turning point for himself, its impact is felt to this day.

 

 

Discussion Questions

Truth

In Genesis 12:1-4, what was God calling Abram to do? What would be the result of obeying that call? According to Romans 4:13, upon what was that choice based?


Repentance

What is the opposite of making choices based on faith? Where do faith-less choices lead us?


Faith

What is a choice that are you struggling with right now? How does faith impact that choice? What is God calling you to do?

RESPOND.

Ask God, how can today’s discussion further your relationship with God, one another, and the world? 

Pray together. [Record responses and prayer requests.]
