Going Deeper is designed for use with your small group, a friend or on you own. Its aim is to create time for you to spend with God and his word. Do as much or as little as you like. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact one of our pastoral staff.
4. Paul is writing this letter from a jail cell in Philippi. Read the narrative of his time in Philippi in Acts 16:16-30. What evidence is there in these verses that shows Paul to be like-minded with Christ during this time?
5. Are there occasions or situations where you find it challenging to be joyful when putting others first? Why do you find this difficult on occasions? Does this only happen when you are among non-Christians or does it sometimes occur when you are with Christians as well?
6. Take a moment of silence as you consider how God is speaking to you. Do you sense God inviting you to bring greater joy into all your relationships? What concrete steps can you take in response? How can your group support you in these steps?
