Discussion Guide

Starter Question

If you could have only three apps on your phone which ones would they be and why?

BIG IDEA

The people of God are essential for the life Jesus wants to give us.

SUMMARY

Even in the perfection of creation, God knew that “…it is not good for man to be alone.” Genesis 2:18 Following Jesus means we are going to walk with others. Mark 3:13-14 It’s in relationship with others that we are encouraged, challenged, and have our destinies revealed. Proverbs 27:17 Relationships are beneficial to us not just because of what we get out of them but what we can offer someone else. The people of God are essential to our lives because it gives us a place to deny ourselves and selflessly love someone else. Philippians 2:3-5
