When Christians Get It Wrong

In God We Trust

Review this week’s message.

Key Scriptures

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
John 1:1-5 NIV

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NIV

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV

What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?
Romans 6:1-2 NIV

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.
  • What is a truth that’s helped you this week?
  • Where did you grow up? How would you describe the culture of your hometown?
Start thinking. Ask a question to get your group thinking.
  • Why do you think grace is something we sometimes struggle to give others?
  • How do you go about deciding what you believe is truth? How did you come to think this way?
Start sharing. Choose a question to create openness.
  • Do you tend to extend more grace or more truth to others? How about to yourself?
  • Have you ever changed your mind about what you believed was truth? How did others respond to you?
  • Who are some of the people you’d like to get better at extending grace to? How could that play out?
Start praying. Be bold and pray with power.

Father, thank You for Jesus. Thank you for sending Him as the way, the truth, and the life. We’re asking you to show us what it means to believe Your truth and live out Your grace. We trust you to lead us by the Holy Spirit. Show us who we can extend more of your grace to this week. Amen!

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.
  • Reach out with grace to at least one person in your life who may feel judged, excluded, or hurt by your belief. Ask them how you can get better at showing them love.
  • Remind your LifeGroup to subscribe to the brand-new season of our new podcast, You’ve Heard It Said. Episode one jumps right in to grace and truth.
  • Ask your LifeGroup to share the In God We Trust Bible Plan with someone they know who’s unsure about Christianity.
