When Paul wrote the words “in everything give thanks”, he knew each of us would have a choice to make. Either we would choose to live a grateful life, or an ungrateful one. And this choice will determine “Which Type” of Christian we are.Fill-in Notes
Take Away / Application
As a growing believer, we are to learn to be grateful IN all things.
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 discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.
- Read Ephesians 5:17. Can you know the will of God apart from the Word of God? What have you learned from your personal time in the Bible this week? How is it impacting your daily life?
- How is your prayer life? Are you spending quality time in prayer with the Lord?
- How have you seen a grateful attitude positively impact you and those around you? In the moments we are ungrateful, how does it negatively impact those around us?
- Read Romans 1:21 and 2 Timothy 3:1–2. Have you thought about being grateful as being more than advice from God, but a command? Based on this, discuss the thought that being ungrateful is a sin.
- Is anything keeping you in a spiritual rut preventing you from having a thankful attitude? How will you choose to change moving forward?
- Read 1 Thessalonians 5:18. Discuss the difference between the words “for” and “in”.
- Read Romans 8:28 and Ephesians 5:20. Practically, how can we begin to connect the *“all things”* of Romans 8:28 and the “all things” of Ephesians 5:20?
- Read Philippians 4:6. Gratefulness begins in our prayer life. What do you need to thank God for this week? Who do you need to thank this week?
