Regular Checkups | Group Study

 

Watch the short clips below, and answer the questions associated with each.  You can do this alone - but it's always more fun with a group of friends!

Be sure to read/study the scriptures in each section.  God's word is the standard by which we measure all our thoughts and ideas.

 

1 | physical checkup

It's important to keep up maintenance on our physical bodies.  Hospitals and Doctor visits can be some of the most tense moments in our lives.  They also have the potential to be some of the funniest moments in our lives.

What is one tense or humorous moment you've had at a hospital?

 

 

2 | regular checkups

Most of us would agree with Pastor Lee; we should be doing regular spiritual checkups.  

Is a checkup something you've done before?
How would you go about doing one?

scripture: 2 Corinthians 13:5-9, Psalm 139:23-24, Galatians 5:19-25

 

3 | our sin nature

Our natural inclination is to sin.  Even after we've accepted Christ as Lord of our lives - our flesh still has a tendency to desire things that are not of God.

There is, in general, a war between the flesh and the Spirit inside of us.  How does this war play out in your life?  What are some things you "war" with?  How do you handle it?

scripture: Romans 3:23, Romans 7:21-25, Galatians 5:16-17

 

 

4 | the bait of satan

There are 1,000 opportunities to be offended everyday.  As Christians, we can either let them go - or allow them to develop into a root of bitterness that pollutes everyone around us.

How do we guard against "the bait of Satan?"  How do we help someone who is stuck in a rut of negativity?

scripture: Hebrews 12:15, Proverbs 19:11, 1 Peter 4:8
