Conversation Starters help us dig deeper, connecting Sunday’s sermons with our everyday lives. These prompts have been designed to help Community Groups grow in their relationship with God, with one another, and with their neighbors.
SCRIPTURE SUMMARY: In Genesis 2:18-24 we see that it is not good for human beings to be isolated and alone. We also see that God created marriage and established boundaries for sexual intimacy.
There are many influences that shape our views of sex, sexuality, and marriage. Who or what have been key shaping influences in your life? Your parents? Our culture? Your teenage friends? Others?
How do you think views on marriage have changed in our society over the past 10 years? What do you think led to these changes?
Read Genesis 2:20-24. Looking at this text, why do think God created marriage?
If someone younger asked you for one piece of advice about sex, what would you tell them? What would you tell them about the purpose of sex?
What does it look like for you to embrace God’s design for sexuality?
Marriage, sexuality, and even friendship are ideally supposed to point us to the most important relationship: Jesus with His church. How have your healthy relationships reminded you of the relationship that God has with us, His people?
Pray that the Lord would allow your group to develop deep community with one another. Also pray that the Lord would give you wisdom to maintain and deepen the close relationships (spouse, family, friends, and neighbors) in your life. In addition, pray that the Lord would strengthen the marriages at our church by his power.
