Death to Control

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 the series called Death to Selfie and talked about "Death to Control". If you missed it, you can listen to it here.

  1. Are you done with your Christmas shopping? Did you participate in Black Friday? Why or why not?
  2. Read John 12:23-26 in the Bible. Why do you think the Bible says, "the man who loves his life will lose it"?
  3. Why do you think Jesus teaches us, life follows death and not the other way around?
  4. In what ways do you die to yourself daily?
  5. Which one is the hardest for you to die to; selfish desires, sin or control? Why?
  6. Have you had a time in your life where God was telling you to move but didn't tell you where just like he did in Genesis 12:1-4 with Abram? Tell us about it.
  7. Share a time in your life when you gave up control whether it was giving up control to God or a friend, co-worker, or family member. Was it hard to give up control? Why or why not?
  8. What's the hardest thing to allow God to have control of in your life?
  9. Weekly Check In Question:  What could we be praying for you this week? (Is there something good we could celebrate with you, or a challenge you need God's help with?)
