Team Lift: Confess

The Rock Church of Fenton, Lake Fenton, Linden, and Byron, Michigan exists to preach the Word of God, Baptize, and Disciple Confess

Overview

In our life we have struggles that weigh us down and make it hard for us to follow Christ the way we ought to. In order to relieve just enough stress to make it through the day, we self prescribe ourselves things that end up causing more pain when the short term effects of pleasure wear off. 

It is time to confess those burdens to other believers who can provide you with truth in a loving way, and so they can help relieve you once and for all of the burden that is holding you down. 

Discussion

Questions:

  • In what ways are you struggling…
    • In your faith? 
    • With temptation? 
    •  In relationships with others? 
  • In what ways can other believers (Us as a small group!) help you personally right now? 
  • A mentor is a person you look to for there experience and wisdom. Who is your mentor?
    • Do they know? 
    • How often do you meet?
  • An accountability partner is someone in the trench with you, who can help you through the battle when you are down. Who is your accountability partner?
    • Do they know? 
    • How often do you meet?
  • In what ways can you better be a believer that reaches out to help others, so that you aren’t only the one that is asking for help?

Challenge:

Really dig in with other believers. Tear down the walls and off the masks that you’ve tend to hide behind and allow yourself to vulnerably walk with us as a group. Check in with both your accountability partner and your mentor this week. If you don’t have one, don’t leave tonight without finding one! 

Commit to praying for the person to the right of you this week regarding the burden they shared tonight.
