Get It Together

Session 2: Own It

Goal: Talk about taking ownership of your identity in Christ.

Fellowship: Have time to talk, eat, and get to know each other.

Pair Up: Ask your eGroup to pair up and spend a few minutes asking each other to:

  • Recite Philippians 2:1-2
  • Share answers to the Challenge It activity in your notebook.

Get To Know You: After a few minutes, ask everyone to share different answers from the Challenge It activity with
the group.

Set It Up:

  • Start by asking someone to pray out loud for your time together.
  • Ask someone to read 1 Samuel 16:7 and Ephesians 3:16-21 out loud.
  • Explain to your eGroup: This week we are talking about measuring our lives by God’s standard, not others’. We will watch a clip from Pastor Steven’s sermon Measuring More and discuss how to change the standards we use to measure ourselves.

Watch It: Watch the sermon clip and encourage everyone to take notes using their Get It Together notebooks.

Write It Down: Give your eGroup 10-15 minutes to answer the questions in their Get It Together notebooks.

Discuss It: Use your answers from the Get It Together notebook and the questions below to facilitate a conversation
with your eGroup:

  • What was one concept from the sermon clip or notebook that stuck out to you and why?
  • Where do the standards come from that determine why you measure yourself the way you do?
  • In what ways do people measure you differently than how God sees you?
  • What about how God sees you is most difficult for you to see in yourself?
  • What do you want your legacy to be and what needs to change now to make that happen?

Before next time:

  • Memorize Philippians 2:1-7
  • Complete the Challenge It activity in your notebook
  • Watch the full sermon – Measuring More
