Small Group Questions: Unity in Christ

EOLFAOC header
Invite someone to pray asking the Spirit to move and speak during your small group time.

ICEBREAKER
What is your best experience of a team environment?
Why was it good?

Share with the group.

DISCUSS

Someone once said ‘If two of us have exactly the same opinions, one of us is superfluous.’
Contrast that with verse 1 Corinthians 1:10 (and John 17:20-23). What a high standard of unity that is!
Discuss how specifically we can get closer to it.

How do you deal with ‘words being thrown around” that are divisive?
How can we respond in a Godly way?

Have members of the group read the following: 1 Tim 6:3-5, 2 Tim 2:14, 2 Tim 23-26, Galatians 6:1-4, Matt 18:15-17.
Share you insights from these passages.

Do you have a desire to be entertained by wise eloquent speakers?
Have you been challenged about this?

Share about your baptism, or consider why you have not  yet been baptized.

If you have been baptized can you remember the one who baptized you?
Is he or she still close?
Who is more important to you, that person or Jesus?
How would you counsel someone who had come to rely more on a person than on Jesus himself?

Have one of the group read 1 Cor 10: 17.
What are specific ways we empty the cross of Christ of its power?

Take time to work out a simple presentation of the gospel that you could tell to a friend when the opportunity arises. Don’t be concerned if it’s not clever, just pray for and expect the power of God.
Here are some verses to help you if you wish, but don’t feel limited to these: Romans 3:23, Isaiah 53:6, Romans 6:23, Romans 5:6,8, John 1:11-12, John 4:14, John 5:24, Romans 10:9, Revelation 3:20, 2 Corinthians 5:17.

PRAY
Take time as a group to pray for unity. Pray for opportunity to share the gospel, for boldness and wisdom in taking that opportunity.

God Bless.
