Questions: ??????

We provide questions each week based on the theme of our service for our Verve Groups to use. If you're not in a Verve Group, feel free to use them on your own.

This week we continued our series called ??? and talked about "???" If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. What is 1 or 2 things that bring you a large amount of joy these days?
  2. Read Lamentations 3:14-24. What is Jeremiah experiencing in these verses? Do you relate to Jeremiah's overall state of mind?
  3. Is depression something you have struggled with or are currently struggling with? If so, what happened or has been happening?
  4. Ryan said there are two major contributing factors to depression: sin and circumstances. How is sin a major reason for developing depression?
  5. What kinds of circumstances can contribute most heavily to a person slipping into depression?
  6. Ryan gave three suggestions on how to either avoid or takes steps to overcoming depression. The first of those was to take care your body. How do you feel you're doing in this area? What improvements could you make?
  7. The second suggestion Ryan gave was to check in emotionally. Do you do this regularly? Do you have someone(s) to do this with? Who could you check in emotionally with if you don't have someone?
  8. The third suggestion Ryan gave was to fix our attention on Jesus. What are you doing on a daily basis to focus on Jesus? What could or should you be doing to make this a reality?
  9. What is your best next step as a result of hearing this message?
  10. Accountability Question:  Who
  11. Prayer Question:  What could we be praying for you this week? (Is this there something good we could celebrate with you, or a challenge you need God's help with?)
