Summer of Love - Jesus is Light

You can’t fool God about sin, so stop trying to fool everyone else

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?

  • Was the church or home you grew up in one that focused a lot on sin? What was that like?

  • Have you or someone you know grown up with associating church with guilt? What can be harmful about that association? What can be beneficial about it?

Read: 1 John 1:5-2:2

  • John writes that fellowship with others is dependent on living in the light. Why would this be? What happens to your relationships when you are hiding sin?

  • What is the danger of having the approach of just managing sin, instead of eradicating sin?

  • Have you ever experienced the feeling of confessing your sins to another person? How did it feel?

  • In verse 10, John says that if we say we have not sinned, we make God a liar. Have you ever been told you’re lying when you’re really telling the truth? What was that like?

  • Why do we hesitate to cut out a relationship/hobby/etc. that makes us sin?

  • Why do we struggle to confess our sins?

Prayer: Confess your sins and thank God for his grace.
