LifeGroup Questions: Applying the Teaching to Your Life

  1. Read Acts 1:9-11. Imagine being at the Ascension. What do you think you would have been thinking? Feeling?
  2. Read Acts 4:20, 22:15,26:16, 1 John 1:1,3. As you read the Gospels, what stands out to you the most of what the disciples would have “seen and heard”?
  3. How would you say you are personally doing at obeying Jesus’ command to “make disciples”? Is there a person you know that you could start meeting with in order to help disciple them? Ask God to show them to you.
  4. Which of the six things Jesus promised the Holy Spirit would do (subpoints of point 2) do you feel you need the most help with?
  5. The Holy Spirit fills us at the moment we become Christians. Then He will fill us again and again whenever we ask Him (as we “Learn to Breathe,” being filled with the Breath of God/Holy Spirit). Ask God to fill you afresh with His Holy Spirit to help you with what you identified in Question 5.
  6. Either after group or sometime tomorrow, take the Next Step Survey at www.opendoor.tv/next/next-steps-survey and follow the suggested steps afterwards to help you take your next step in becoming more like Christ.
