We are encouraging all small groups to go through the Anchored study. You can find everything you need at www.anchoredstudy.com. We will offer a shortened message-based study from now through the end of the year to allow your group to go through Anchored. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can trust God with our future and walk by faith because God Himself has fulfilled every requirement of the covenant He made with Abraham to allow us to be in a relationship with Him.
Discuss the Message
What stood out to you from the message this weekend? (a point, verse or story you remember, etc.)
What was Abraham’s role in the covenant? What did God do? What does this tell you about God’s character and desire to connect with His people? Why do you think God took the consequences upon Himself instead of giving that responsibility to Abraham?
What is God teaching you through what you learned either from the message or the verses this week?
Apply the Message
Abraham had no active part in the covenant he made with God – God took all of the responsibility and consequences upon Himself. We do not have to “earn” our way to a relationship with God. Our only role is to accept what has already been done.
What do you need to let go of and stop trying to earn or pay for yourself in your relationship with God?
