Discussion Episode | God Can Rescue Us
We heard the story of Daniel’s three friends being thrown into a blazing furnace because they would not worship a statue that King Nebecunezzer set up. We were left with this challenge to reflect on. God can rescue us; will you honour him regardless if he does or does not like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego?

- Tell each other about a difficult time in your life and how you honoured God or did not honour God.
- Our Growth tip today talked about making honouring God a habit. What are some routines and habits that you have that honour, God? How could you tweak or change a habit so that you can better honour God?
- People may not ask you to bow down to a statue, but people will encourage you to do things that do not honour God. It could be friends pressuring you to do something wrong, or it may be images that you see on social media that cause you to want to explore other things that don’t honour God. What are some behaviours that you know dishonour God but are consistently enticing you?
Tips and Tricks for leading a discussion
It is common for people to not pursue God like they know they should or with as much effort as they onced did.
Have a conversation with them and rather than challenging them just listen and ask questions.
If it is you than find someone to talk with about it!
Make honouring God a habit! One thing that is so important is to honour God in the little things. When we honour God in the little things when we get to the big moments in life we will continue to honour God in those big things too.
This is not to say that every moment will be easy? We are often tempted to go our own way and respond in a way that does not honour God. Rather than thinking of life as a bunch of decisions think of life as a bunch of habits. The more your habits honour God the easier it becomes to continue in those habits when something really difficult comes your way and you are tempted to choose a path that does not honour God. Make honouring God a habit and you will continue to honour God when challenges and difficulties arise.
At the end of your discussion, go around the group and ask for prayer requests.
