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.
1. Pray for the needs of your Life Group, for our church and our leaders, for personal and corporate renewal, and to allow God’s word to transform us.
Share a recent entry from your Life Journal with the group.
2. This week, our Biblical text was Phil. 4:4-8 and Paul instructs us in v.4 to: “rejoice in the Lord always” and in v.6 to “be anxious for nothing.” Considering the “ups and downs” of our lives, what thoughts or questions do these verses raise for you?
3. In v.13, Paul says that: “I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.” Have you ever experienced Jesus’ strengthening power? Share such experiences with the group.
4. The Philippians shared in Paul’s distress. How do you think they did this? How can we share in fellow Christians’ distress? How can we share in their times of joy?
5. By their giving, Paul said the Philippians shared in his ministry. What are your thoughts or questions regarding this?
6.In v.17, Paul mentions that he’s anticipating “the fruit that abounds to their account” because of their generous giving. In your life as a Christian, have you experienced such “fruit”?
7. Take a moment of silence to consider how God is speaking to you through these verses. Is He asking you to make changes or to do something new? What concrete steps of response do you want to take? How can your group support you in these steps?
