We are encouraging all small groups to go through the Anchored study. You can find everything you need at gethope.net/anchored. 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 smallgroups@gethope.net.

Main Idea

Baggage can make us prisoners to what we carry instead of experiencing the promises of God. Thanks to what Jesus did on the cross for us, we are free to live free from the baggage we so often collect if we are willing to trust Him.

Some examples of baggage that impact many of us include:

  • Guilt / Shame
  • Resentment / Anger
  • Fear
  • Materialism
  • Need for approval

Key Verse(s)

Genesis 14:8-24

Ephesians 2:1-5

Ephesians 3:17-19

Discuss the Message

What stood out to you from the message this weekend?


What is God teaching you through what you learned either from the message or the verses this week?


Apply the Message

Three questions to ask yourself this week:


  1. What baggage have you brought with you? (Do you identify with anything from the list above or is there something else weighing you down?)


  1. Will you trust Jesus is enough? (What would it look like if you knew without a doubt that you could trust Jesus with this?)


  1. What do you need to give away / set down today?
