Rip Up Your List

Modern Romance

Review this week’s message.

Key Scriptures

“The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our God remains forever.”
Isaiah 40:8 HCSB

Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
John 8:12 NLT

Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4 ESV

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.
Proverbs 19:21 NIV

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.
  • When you were a kid, what influenced your idea of what great relationships should look like?
Start thinking. Ask a question to get your group thinking.
  • Which part of this message was most impactful for you and why?
  • Do you have a list—a set of expectations about a person or situation that can lead to frustration? If so, what’s on it?
  • What would your life look like if you were to rip up that list? How would that change things for you?
Start sharing. Choose a question to create openness.
  • Read Psalm 37:4. Has God ever changed your heart or your desires as a result of you deciding to delight yourself in Him? What was that experience like?
  • How could you rip up your list and follow after God’s will for your life?
Start praying. Be bold and pray with power.

Father, thank You for never giving up on us. You’re always at work in our lives, calling us and shaping us so that we become more like Your Son. Help us to trust You throughout this process, even when life isn’t easy or when our expectations don’t match reality. In Jesus’ name, amen.
