Imaginary god • Part 7

For seven weeks, we have studied what God is really like. What is the one word that best describes God and His relationship with us? This can be a life-changer once you embrace it.

Large Group

  1. Who have you invited to our Christmas services? Take a few minutes to discuss and share one reaction you received.
  2. What was your perception of God when you were a teen or young adult? How did you arrive at that opinion?
  3. Read 2 Corinthians 6:18. What similarities do our earthly father and our Heavenly Father share? What differences?
  4. Read John 14:15 and James 1:22.  Loving God has as much to do with our action as with our heart. Is there an area in your life that you would be willing to share with the group where God is calling you to submit to His will and walk in obedience?
  5. Read Isaiah 9:6. What’s in a name? As you read each name, describe how you have experienced God in that way.
    Wonderful Counselor - Mighty God - Everlasting Father - Prince of Peace
  6. During this series, what is the most profound discovery that you have made about your image of God?
  7. What’s so special about Christmas is that God’s authority and God’s love are reaching down to save us. How can you share this fact with those in your world?
  8. Take some time as a group and pray for the upcoming services and for Pastor James. Pray that the Holy Spirit will draw the lost to come and hear about the wonderful God who loves them and who wants an intimate relationship with them. Pray that we all see God as the magnificent Father He is.
