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.

"And let us consider how we may spur one another
on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in
the habit of doing, but encouraging one another — and all the more as you see
the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24-25
How do you spur someone
to love and good works? These two things are always the mark of true
Christianity. Christians are never judged by the confessions they make, or the
creed they recite; it is always by their deeds. How much practical love have
you manifested? How far have you responded to the cry for help from someone
near you, someone who is destitute or disappointed, who needs an encouraging word
or a helping hand or a generous check? This is the ultimate test.
How do you achieve this? He suggests two ways:
First, by not neglecting to meet together, that ...full

"After saying above, Sacrifices and
offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have not
desired, nor have You taken pleasure in them(which are offered according to the
Law), then He said, Behold, I have come to do Your will. He takes away
the first in order to establish the second. By this will we have been
sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”
Here is what God really wanted. God never cared
a snap of his fingers for all the rivers of blood that flowed on Jewish altars.
He had no interest in them except as they taught something. What did these
sacrifices point to? A human body in which there was a human will which
continually chose to depend upon an indwelling God to obey a written word! That
was what God wanted. When Christ came he paused on the ...full

"For Christ did not enter a holy place made with
hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in
the presence of God for us; nor was it that He would offer Himself often, as
the high priest enters the holy place year by year with blood that is not his
own.” Hebrews 9:24-25
The writer points out that the old system
required endless repetition of sacrifice. The effect of these sacrifices never
lasted very long. A man had to bring a fresh sacrifice every time he sinned,
and once a year the whole nation had to offer the same sacrifice, year after
year. The old arrangement required repetition. But the new arrangement is beyond
time, as well as beyond space. The cross of Christ is a contemporary sacrifice,
it was offered at one point in history, but the effect of it, ...full

"For this reason He is the mediator of a new
covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the
transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have
been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.” Hebrews 9:15
You cannot avail yourself of all that Jesus
Christ provides for you in terms of release from a guilty conscience, unless there
is a death. The will is useless without it. In fact, he says, death is so
important that even the shadow, the picture in the Old Testament, required
blood. Not, of course, the blood of Jesus Christ, but the blood of bulls and
goats. Blood is inescapable.
That brings us to the point: Why? We shall never
come to the answer until we squarely face the implications of the
substitutionary character of the death of Jesus Christ. His death ...full

"For if the blood of goats and bulls and the
ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled sanctify for the
cleansing of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the
eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your
conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”
Hebrews 9:13, 14
The practical effect of Christ's ministry to us
is given in these words, to
cleanse or purge your conscience from
dead works. The problem that is faced in this passage, therefore,
is how to handle a nagging conscience.
We each have a conscience. We may not be able to
analyze it, and we certainly cannot control it, but we know we all possess one.
Conscience has been defined as that still, small voice that makes you feel
smaller still, or, as one little boy put it, It is that which feels
bad when ...full
