How Ya Livin’?
No one likes to be judged. However, all of us have judged another person at some point in our lives. Even Christians judge other Christians. As we take a closer look at Romans 14, the Apostle Paul has much to teach us, and we learn judging others ultimately derails and distracts from a bigger mission and purpose.
Take Away / Application
- Do not judge, simply love.
- When you stop living for you and start living for Jesus, you stop living for the temporary and start living for the extraordinary.
- How ya livin’? It just may impact how someone is dying.
Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your group or branch off with additional questions as the discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.
- Share about a time when you were unfairly judged.
- Share about a time when you unfairly judged someone else.
- Read Romans 14:1,10, 13. When we argue and fight with one another, where does this come from? Hint, read James 4:1.
- Read Colossians 3:16. Read Hebrews 3:13. What is the difference between exhort, admonish and the judgment Paul spoke of in Romans 14?
- Read Romans 14:10–12. When you think of the Lord’s judgment, what comes to mind? Does it frighten, motivate, worry, etc.?
- Read Romans 14:7–8. Are there areas in your life where you struggle with allowing Jesus to be Lord? Share.
- When you stop living for you and start living for Jesus, you stop living for the temporary and start living for the extraordinary. Have you or how have you seen this statement ring true in your life?
- When you read Matthew 28:19–20, what comes to mind for you personally? Do you struggle with this mission? If so, how? Discuss as a group how to best live these verses out, personally, publicly and with others?
- Is there anything that causes you to drift from Jesus and the mission? How can your group help keep you on mission?
- What, if anything, needs to change in your life after hearing this message?
- Write down one person’s name that you need to intentionally reach out to this week. Allow your group to keep you accountable to doing so.
