Habits

Review this week’s message.

Key Scriptures

I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate. ... I want to do what is right, but I can’t. I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway. ...Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. ...
Romans 7:15, 18-19, 24-25 NLT

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Galatians 6:9 NIV

We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin. For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin ... Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.
Romans 6:6-7, 18 NLT

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.

  • If you could wave a wand and make this year different from last year, what two or three things would you magically change?
  • What’s one new habit you want to start? What’s one old habit you want to stop?

Start thinking. Ask a question to get your group thinking.

  • Which is more difficult for you: making a habit or breaking a habit? Why do you think that is?
  • What’s a positive habit you do occasionally that you’d like to do consistently?

Start sharing. Choose a question to create openness.

  • Read Romans 7:15-25. How can you relate with the Apostle Paul? How has the power of Jesus set you free from this cycle?
  • Use three words to describe the kind of person you want to become.
  • What’s a “who” goal that you want to put into place this year? What are some systems that would help you reach it?

Start praying. Be bold and pray with power.

God, we can’t do any of this without You. Thank You for showing us the places we can grow to become more like Christ. Holy Spirit, we need Your power to break off old habits and start new ones. We pray this by the powerful name of Jesus. Amen.

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.
