Discussion Confession of Sin
Bradon: This is the discussion episode for Confession of Sin
Jon: Ephesians tells us that bringing things to the light or exposing them to the light frees us from the darkness. This is known as, confession of sins. Knowing that Jesus is the light of the world we understand our need for Him to come and pay the debt for our sins.
- Bradon: Why is it scary to be truthful about the things we have done wrong?
- Jon: BIG Question. You may need to ask a parent or pastor this one! Talk about it with them. If we all sin, why is it important to step away from sin? Couldn’t we all just ignore those bad parts of the world? Especially if it isn’t harming anyone?
- Bradon: What is an area you would want someone to hold you accountable in? What SMALL way do you wish to grow?
Bradon: Our growth tip today seems WAY too simple. But it can be really hard.
Jon: We simply want you to ask someone to hold you accountable for something small. Something you wish to grow in.
Bradon: and then brainstorm together what that looks like, or what best fits your need.
Accountability helps us step into a place of vulnerability, which is always needed when speaking truthfully about our Sin.
Jon: Perhaps it’s a text message reminder each morning to read your bible, or asking a parent to ask you once a week how your relationship with God is.
Bradon: It is about giving permission for someone to ask you the hard questions around the area you want to grow! It can be scary but also REALLY fun.
At the end of your discussion, go around the group and ask for prayer requests.
