Make 2017 a year of true change—base your resolutions on the Word of God.
Most resolutions fail by February.
Just about everyone is going to make some promise to themselves to do something in the New Year: lose a few pounds, break a bad habit, cut down on social media…
There’s nothing wrong with setting goals. But this year, resolve to do something with a higher purpose. Something that has eternal weight and significance. Something your entire small group can get behind.
Here are the Lifeway Groups Ministry’s recommendations for the top 5 Bible studies for your small group to do in the new year.
This year, resolve to…
…make real, noticeable progress in your walk with Christ.
Find out what it really means to be poor in spirit, to be meek, and to mourn, and discover how those qualities will help you live a life in which God’s blessings are abundantly clear and present (lifeway.com/momentumstudy).
…find peace in God’s sovereign will.
Find hope in understanding that the sudden or seemingly endless detours in life are God’s way of moving you from where you are to where He wants you to be (lifeway.com/detours).
…overcome strongholds that enslave you.
Learn to renew your mind in Christ as you identify and overcome the mental, familial, and even self-created strongholds that enslave you (lifeway.com/thinkdifferently).
…become who you already are in Christ.
Challenge the status quo of our culture (and even some churches) by encouraging your group to live more purely through the essential convictions of Christianity (lifeway.com/ephesians).
…know Jesus more intimately.
Explore the Gospel of John and move toward a more intimate relationship with Jesus through His miracles, what He said about Himself, and what others said about Him (lifeway.com/knowingjesus).
