Free: Free From Religion

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 started the series called Free and talked about Free From ReligionIf you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. What is a home project, craft or hobby that you tried that didn't go so well?
  2. In your opinion, what's the difference between being a Christian and being religious?
  3. Have you ever wanted to follow the rules instead of feeling like you had to? If so, explain how it differs. If not, what do you think is holding you back from getting to that point?
  4. In Titus 2:12 in the New Testament of the Bible, It says, "It (grace of God) teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age." How can you help someone understand the freedom in wanting to say, "No!" to ungodliness and worldly passions?
  5. What is the most important relationship in your life right now? What about this relationship makes it great?
  6. What do you choose? Religion & follow the laws or Jesus & follow Him? Why?
  7. Which area of your life do you feel like you lean more towards religion and rule following than on God's unconditional love? Why does that area seem to be more difficult to accept God's love and let go of religion?
  8. Even on your very best day, you still can't be good enough to save yourself from your sins. Is this hard for you to accept? Why or why not?
  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?)
