It’s time to make sure we draw close to Him. In this two-part series, we’ll do just that, rise above the chaos and focus back on Jesus!Fill-in Notes
Take Away / Application
Can people tell I’ve been with Jesus?
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.
- If you were to pick a person who’s had the biggest impact on how you behave and act, who would it be? (Mom, Dad, mentor, sibling, coach, etc.) What habits or traits did you pick up from them?
- Read Psalm 1:1–3 and Proverbs 13:20. Good or bad, you are who you hang out with. How have you seen the truth of this statement play out in your life?
- Read Acts 4:1–4. God grows us the most in the valleys and difficult times. He grows His church the same. He reaches those who don’t know Him during hard seasons of life. How have you seen this play out in your life? How does this encourage you in the current difficulties of life?
- “Being a witness is not something we do, it’s something we are.” Discuss.
- Read Acts 4:5–12. Peter and John were bold in this intimidating moment. What can we learn from them in this instance? How would you like to grow in the area of being bold for Christ?
- Read Acts 4:13. Have you struggled with relating your effectiveness for Jesus with being educated? What did you learn today to help with this struggle?
- What was your first thought or reaction to the question, “Can people tell I’ve been with Jesus?”
- Time in the Bible and prayer are the basics in growing in our relationship with Jesus. If your time and relationship with Jesus are going well, share how He’s growing you. Share about struggles if you need help. Share if there’s something you need to say “no” to in order to say “yes” to Jesus?
