Get into the Bible: New Year, New Hopes

Wednesday 18th December 2019

At the start of a new year we often hear of people making resolutions or setting goals for the year ahead. It could be giving something up, starting a new diet, saving money and so on. “This is going to be my year” is a commonly heard phrase. But through Jesus Christ we have the opportunity for a fresh start and a new hope for the future.

FOR DISCUSSION 

See if members of the group will share any resolutions they have made, or some examples they have heard from elsewhere.

Do you find it easy to keep resolutions? What does it take?

Read Philippians 3:12-14

  • What goals, or “spiritual” resolutions, should Christians set?
  • Are these realistic? How would they make a difference to the world around us?
  • What is the “prize” that verse 14 refers to?
  • Do you think this shows that God cares more about who we are above what we do?
