SPEAKER

SCRIPTURE

2 Peter 1:1-9

BIG IDEA

God provides everything we need for the journey.

OUTLINE

  1. The better you know God, the more you will trust Him.
    • God is All-Knowing: He knows me personally.
    • God is All-Powerful: He can change my life.
    • God is Everywhere: He never leaves me.
  2. God never reneges on a promise.
  3. My core identity changed.
  4. Actively build on your new life.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  1. Have you been on a hike that was much more difficult than you thought it would be? Or you forgot essential gear? How’d it work out?
  2. Would you say you completely trust God with His promises or just kind of trust Him? Explain.
  3. Describe the difference between knowing about God and experiencing Him. Do you have a more intimate relationship with God today than you did last year?
  4. Do you believe that knowing someone more allows you to trust them more (assuming they are trustworthy)? If so, what keeps you from getting to know God better?
  5. Discuss the potential implications of v. 9 in life.

NEXT STEP

  • I will choose to get to know God better this week by spending at least 10 minutes a day with Him.
