Growth Group Discussion Guide

Sermon Response:

(1) What was your primary take-away from the sermon on Sunday? How did the Lord challenge you to apply the truth that you heard?

Study the Word:

(1) Read Acts 4:23-35. What do you notice about the prayers of the Christians in this passage? What is different about how they pray from the way that you typically pray?

(2) Read Acts 8:9-25. Why does Peter rebuke Simon’s request to receive the power of the Holy Spirit? What does this interaction teach us about having pure motives when it comes to seeking the power of the Spirit?

Personal Application:

(1) Who is it hard for you to talk to about your faith? Why is it hard for you to talk to that person about Jesus? Pray for boldness today and take a risk this week to share something God has done in your life.

(2) What miracle are you asking God to do in someone else’s life to get their attention and bring them to faith in Christ? Write down a specific prayer for someone you know to experience a miracle this week:
