Community Group Homework
For the week of February 5, 2017
1. If someone had just given you a yacht, what would you name it?
2. What were the coolest Valentine cards you ever gave out when you were in elementary school?
Looking back at your notes from this week’s teaching, was there anything that particularly caught your attention, challenged or confused you?
TALK ABOUT IT
– On Sunday we shared the quote: “Sex. We live in a world that loves it without understanding it.” Do you agree? Why or why not?
The Apostle Paul was an overseer for many of the churches in the New Testament. He would often write them letters to answer questions or deal with issues to help them understand how to follow Christ. In his letter to the Corinthians he addressed some issues of sexual immorality and the idea of ultimate liberty.
Have someone in your group read 1 Corinthians 6:12.
– What do you think it means to have liberty, yet be loving toward God and others?
– What do you think it means to have liberty, yet be mastered by that liberty?
– What is the balance between liberty and limits in contemporary culture? What is the balance in the contemporary church?
Have someone in your group read 1 Corinthians 6:13-17.
– Sex is just physical. Agree or disagree? Why do you believe that?
– What are the ramifications of viewing sex as “just physical”?
– If our body is eternal and belongs to God, how should that change the way we view our bodies?
Have someone in your group read 1 Corinthians 6:18-20.
– Paul indicates that sexual sin is in its own category because of the impact that it has. What do you think about that?
– What do you think if means that, “God dwells in you”?
– Paul closes with the statement: “Honor God with your bodies.” How can we do that each day?
WRAPPING IT UP
– What do you do to protect yourself from sexual immorality? What ways do you “flee” from it?
Take time to pray and thank God that as Christians we can bring glory to God in everything we do and are, including our sexuality. Ask Him to help this group to honor Him with their bodies.
Are there any needs that we can pray for as a group?
