Reflecting on the Most Recent Sermon
Sermon Series: World Changers Sermon Title: Unflinching Loyalty in a “Throw-Away” World
Delivered On: August 11, 2019
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)
Thank God for the people he has placed in your life who have been a powerful example of being loyal to Jesus and to the people in their life. Pray for power to be loyal to Jesus, to family members, to the message of Jesus, and to the people God has placed in your life.
Daily Loyalty: What are two or three actions toward people in your life that will show a faithful loyalty? Write these down and seek to act on each one of them every day for a week. See how this impacts these relationships… then, keep it up!
Small Group Discussion
Who is a person in your life that has been an example of loyalty to other people? What do they do, say, and how do they act that shows true loyalty?
Tell about a person in your life that has been an example of loyalty to God, His Word (the Bible), and the church. How have you been inspired by this person?
Read: 2 Timothy 1:1-5. What do you learn about Paul and Timothy’s friendship and relationship in this passage? How do you see loyalty modeled in their relationship?
Who invested in you as a follower of Jesus and taught you how to walk closely with the Savior and how did they help you grow in faith?
Who is one person you can invest in spiritually (presently or in the future) and what can you do to help them grow more in faith?
Read: 1 Timothy 1:6-10. Question?
Tell about one gift God has given you that you use for His glory and how you can fan it into flame and use it even more.
God calls us to boldness and not timidity. What is one way you can be bolder in your faith and loyalty to Jesus?
How can your group members pray for you and encourage you as you seek to live with greater loyalty, boldness, and passion for Jesus?
