My Awkward Family - Your Forever Family

Main Point: The family of God isn’t like a family. It is a family.

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
     
  • What does family mean to you?
     
  • Do you have, or have you had, any “voluntary kin” in your life, meaning people who are not blood-related but are considered family? Share about those relationships?

Read: 1 Timothy 1:2, Colossians 1:2, and 1 John 3:2.

  • Why do you think the authors use family terms to refer to their readers?
     
  • Do you think of your fellow Christians as brothers and sisters? Why or why not?

Read: Matthew 12:46-50, Luke 14:26, and Mark 10:29-30.

  • How does becoming a Christian make you a member of the family of God?
     
  • Since our fellow Christians are our family, how does that impact how we interact with them? Why?
     
  • Where is the balance between prioritizing the family of God and other family? What are the positives and negatives of focusing on each of them?
     
  • Which family comes first? Why?

Prayer: Pray for your family.
