Topic: Church Life Passage: Acts 4:32–5:16
- Who has been a Barnabas (encourager) in your life?
To whom are you, or will you be, a Barnabas?
- Ananias was a hypocrite—he wanted to “appear” a good Christian...he wanted the approval of people.
Is there an area of your own life that is like Ananias? Talk about it…pray about it...confess and step away from it!
- Talk with others about he difference between being a “believer” rather than a “follower”. Pastor Paul noted a “believer” looks to God to meet their needs, while a “follower” is letting the Lord be in charge of their living.
Examine your own life — are you more “believer” or “follower”?
Is there any specific change you need to make?
- Christians grow in relationship, not in isolation.
How are you involved in “relationship” with other Christians...or are you isolated or merely in surface relationship?
