Key Scripture

God’s will is for you to be holy ...
1 Thessalonians 4:3 NLT

God Cares About

Who before do.
"If you are becoming the right who—you will choose the right do."

Why before what.
You may think everything you do is right, but the LORD judges your motives.
Proverbs 16:2 GNT

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:10 NIV

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Colossians 3:17 NIV

“Pleasing God isn’t a few big decisions. It’s countless daily decisions of dying to self and following Christ.”

More Scripture

1 Samuel 16:7, Proverbs 21:2, Matthew 6:1-4, Philippians 2:3-4

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.

  • What’s one of the craziest or funniest decisions you’ve ever made?
  • Have you ever experienced decision fatigue about anything? How did you end up making the decision?

Start thinking. Ask a thoughtful question.

  • Chew on this one. Who does God want you to become?
  • Think about what you’re asking God for. Then, answer these questions: What do I really want, why do I want it, and will this cause me to become more like Christ?

Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.

  • What’s one area of your life where you wish you knew what God wanted you to do?
  • In your decisions, are you more focused on choosing the right do, or becoming the right who?
  • Read Proverbs 16:2. Talk about a time you had the right motives and a time you had the wrong motives.
  • Talk about why you make your decisions. Are you more often aiming to validate yourself or give glory to God? How did you come to your answer?

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

God, we’ve probably been too focused on finding out what You want us to do, only to miss why You want us to do it—and who You want us to become. Will You change our perspective this week and give us the power to see how we can become the person You made us to be? Amen.

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

  • What’s the next step God wants you to take? When will you take it? Who will hold you to it?
  • Start reading Pastor Craig’s Divine Direction Bible Plan: www.go2.lc/divineplan
  • Write down your next step to become the person God wants you to be. Put it somewhere you look every day.
