Complete Reliance – March 24 & 25

...our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. (Romans 3:27b, NLT)

Read these verses before your discussion:
Acts 16:22-34
Acts 17:28
Romans 3:23-28
Jeremiah 1:5
Psalm 139:15
James 1:17
Deuteronomy 8:18

Dive deeper into this week’s sermon content. Use these questions to help guide your group discussion.

  1. Read Acts 16:22-34. When the jailer had nowhere else to go, he turned to God. In what areas of your life do you feel like there is nowhere else to go? What would it look like to give your worries and wants completely over to God?

  2. One of the chief virtues of American culture is independence. God is at work in your life, even when you don’t acknowledge it. Do you find it difficult to depend on God for everything you need while the world says to rely only on yourself?

  3. When you take deal two, you’ll start seeing your great need more and more. Identify and discuss with your group some specific areas you need Jesus’ in your life (at work, at home, in every moment of life).

    Pray for the humility to accept his direction in all of these areas. Pray for his grace as you learn to depend on him more.
