Dream to Destiny: Overcoming Temptation

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 Dream to Destiny and talked about Overcoming TemptationIf you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. When you are at the zoo, what animal do you enjoy watching most and why?
  2. What is your current greatest temptation? Why is this so tempting to you?
  3. In the past, what is a temptation you had but you've overcome it? What helped you overcome it?
  4. When are you the most vulnerable to temptation? What can you do to ensure you are extra cautious when you are in that vulnerable state?
  5. In Genesis 39:8-9 of the Old Testament of the Bible, Joseph is bold enough to say, "No!" when it would have been very easy for him to give into the sexual temptation of Potiphar's wife. Why do you think thinking of others when you are being tempted sexually, helps you not give in to temptation?
  6. Do you have extra boundaries in place so you don't fall into sexual temptation? If so, what are they? If not, what boundaries do you need to set up?
  7. Is it harder to flee temptation knowing that rewards for faithfulness are not immediate but eternal? Why or why not?
  8. 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?)
