UNLEASHING THE CHURCH

LIFE GROUP SERIES - SPRING 2022

Brandywine's mission from the very begging has been "To reach those far from God and lead them to become fully devoted followers of Christ". But what does that look like in a practical sense for us to be able to live that out in our daily lives?  In this series we will learn what it means for every member to live on mission by breaking down the following statment: "Ordinary people empowered by God making a difference together wherever we are."

WHO DOES GOD CHOOSE TO USE?

The Church Unleashed - Part 1 of 6

LIFE GROUP DISCUSSION

 

Choose one of these discussion starters:

 

If you are group is new, take a few minutes to get introduced and share something you are hoping to gain from this group experience.

 

Share one good thing and one challenging thing you have experienced since the group last met.

 

If you were considered an “amateur expert” in anything, what would it be?

 

2.  Two Sunday’s ago Pastor Mark introduced this phrase to summarize what it means to live on mission everyday:  “Ordinary people, empowered by God, making a difference together, wherever we are.”  Which part of that phrase resonates with you the most?

 

3.  In the message this week, we talked about Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Samuel, David, Mary and Peter; all of whom might seem unlikely to have been used by God at first glance. Who are some other unlikely characters in the Bible that you can think of? What are some things that they all have in common?

 

4.  One character in the Bible who struggled with not feeling qualified for God to use him was Moses.  Read Exodus 3:11-12 and 4:10-13.

Have you ever personally struggled with not feeling qualified or good enough, or just too ordinary, for God to use you?  How did Moses overcome these feelings? How can you?

 

5.  Read 1 Corinthians 1:27-29.  God seems to delight in using ordinary, even unlikely, people.  Why do you think he does that?

 

6.  God uses a heart that is available, faithful and humble.  Of these three, where do you want God to grow you the most and why?

 

7.  Take prayer requests and allow some time to pray for one another.
