Part 1 - Beginning The Journey

We were made to live free, but too often we can find ourselves bound by habits, hurts, and hang-ups of the past. In this video, we’ll begin the journey to living free.

Discussion Questions

  1. Based on what Pastor Jeremy said, how would you de ne freedom? What does freedom mean to you?
  2. Can you share a time when you tried to only change your actions (fruit vs. root)? Can you share a time when you actually discovered the root that was causing your actions and how you worked to change it?
  3. How do you naturally connect with God? (i.e in nature, worship, reading the Bible)
  4. Why is hearing the voice of God the foundation to experiencing deeper freedom?
  5. Take a few minutes to pray and respond to this question: “God, what is one thing that You desire for me to gain through this series? Is there a particular area that I need freedom in?”

    Pray this prayer throughout this life group series as God takes each of us on a journey to deeper freedom.

    For some of you, this journey to freedom in Christ will be a signi cant departure from the life you live now. For others, it will seem more like a course correction. In every case, it will liberate you to be who you are in Christ and do what you haven’t done before. This path of freedom will impact your thoughts and emotions, your relationships with others, and your heart-to-heart connection with God. Stay committed to this journey and your group, and watch and see what God does in your life!

Prayer

“God, what is one thing that You desire for me to gain through this series? Is there any particular area that I need freedom in?”
