LIFE GROUP- WELCOME!
Welcome to the small group component of your journey of Discovery! In your small group sessions, you will have a chance to discuss topics related to spiritual growth as well as the eight points of the Fellowship Membership Covenant. In each of our six small group sessions, we will have a short introduction to a topic followed by a section labeled“Encounter.” The Encounter section is designed for you to review on your own before your group meeting. There will be scriptures to consider and an opportunity for you to jot down your thoughts.Following the Encounter section is"Explore." These questions are designed to help create a good discussion in your small group time. Next comes the"Engage"section." These questions are more personal, but your group leader may encourage the group to share from this section as well. As questions arise during your small group sessions, don’t hesitate to ask them. If you are wondering about something, there is a good chance that someone else is wondering too.

"See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of
you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But
encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that
none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. We have come to share in
Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end.”
We share in Christ if that faith which began
continues to produce in us that which faith alone can produce, the fruit of the
Spirit. This is an important warning of this book; a warning against the danger
of hardening — of hearing the words and believing them, understanding what they
mean, but of taking no action upon them. The peril of holding truth in the
head, but never letting it get into the heart. But truth known never does
anything; it is truth done ...full

"Moses was faithful as a servant in all God's
house, bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future. But
Christ is faithful as the Son over God's house. And we are his house, if indeed
we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.” Hebrews 3:5-6
Six times in this short section the word house
appears, the house of God. There is a very common misunderstanding
abroad in our day, especially among Christians, which uses the term, the
house of God to mean a church building. There is nothing more destructive
of the greatest message of the New Testament than that belief! A building is
never truly called the house of God, either in the New Testament or the Old
Testament, in the present or in the past. Certainly no church building, since
the very beginning of the early church, could ever properly be called the

"In bringing many sons and daughters to glory,
it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should
make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered.” Hebrews
The earthly life of Jesus is referred to in one
phrase, perfect through what he suffered. Was he not perfect when he came?
When Jesus was a babe in Bethlehem's manger, was he not perfect even then? When
he was tempted in the desert and Satan tried to turn him from the cross, was he
not already perfect? When he was feeding the five thousand, in compassionate
ministry to the hungry multitudes, was he not perfect? Why then does it say he was
perfected by suffering?
There are, of course, two perfections involved.
He was perfect in his person all along, but he was not yet perfect in his work.
A person may be perfect ...full

"In putting everything under them, God left
nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present we do not see everything
subject to them. But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a
little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so
that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.” Hebrews 2:8b-9
This passage describes humanity's present state
of futility. Here is the whole story of human history in a nutshell: God
created us to exercise dominion, but we do not yet see everything in subjection
to us. We attempt to exercise our dominion, but we no longer can do so
adequately. We have never forgotten the position God gave us. Throughout the
history of the race, there is a continual restatement of the dreams of humanity
for dominion over the earth and the universe. ...full

"We must pay the most
careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift
away. For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every
violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if
we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by
the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it
by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit
distributed according to his will.” Hebrews 2:1-4
The writer says that we need to pay attention!
This convinces me that the writer of this letter was a preacher. There is nothing
more heartbreaking than preaching to people day after day and to see them
constantly exposed to truth that you know could transform their very existence,
and yet to see them lose the whole ...full
