The State of Our Relationships

State of Your Union

Pastor Jerry Gillis - January 16, 2022

Community Group Study Notes

  1. Have someone in your group give a brief recap of Sunday’s message, highlighting the primary Scripture passages and purpose of our relationships with brothers and sisters in Christ. 

  1. What was one thing that God was showing you through the sermon? How did this message change your perspective on your relationship with other believers? 

  1. Read 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12 and interact with this statement: “Our relationships within the family and outside the family are all in service to God’s mission.” How is this statement supported by Scripture? What does a watching world learn about Jesus when they observe the way we treat one another? Why does this matter? 

  1. How can we, as brothers and sisters, encourage each other and hold each other accountable to viewing our work as a witness? 

  1. What is one action step you can take in light of Sunday’s teaching?  


Action Steps 

  1. Dedicate 15 minutes to praying for your spiritual brothers and sisters. Pray for the “family members” in your community group to live faithfully to serve God’s mission.  

  1. Spend time in reflection on the state of your relationships. Consider:  Are there any fractured relationships that need to be restored? 1 Corinthians 13:1-13Are there any changes you need to make in how you’re using social media or how you handle disagreements?
