Sabbath

All of Me – Wk. #9

Catching Up:

What is your favorite way to use your personal “free-time?”

Review:

• How did it go this past week as you applied last week’s sermon? What can we celebrate? What can we pray about?

• Which aspect of this week’s sermon did you connect with and why? Any particular Scriptures that stood out to you?

• What is your personal experience with Sabbath? What were your thoughts about Sabbath before this sermon? Have any of those changed after the sermon?

Going Deeper:

• What are life-giving activities that you use to help you rest & re-orient on Sabbath? For any “non-spiritual” activities, how do you keep them from diverting you away from Sabbath purposes?

• If you are married, how do you handle your different needs and approaches to Sabbath? (i.e. compromise, serve one-another’s needs, case-by-case?)

• What are the hardest things for you to say no to when you Sabbath? How do you handle this?

• Bonus question 🙂 – How does your interaction with Sabbath help you to live on mission the other days of the week?

Individual application: What is one action step you can this next week to Sabbath better? Share this with your group.

Prayer: Spend time in prayer: Confess finding value/worth in anything outside of God. Thank God for freedom in Christ. Ask for wisdom in planning your Sabbath.

Pray by name for those in your life who need Jesus.
