Reflect on these questions and discuss with your family, friends and/or GCG:
1. How do you feel when you reflect on the fact that God makes you do something?
2. How do you feel when you reflect on the fact that God leads you?
3. What are some things that you know you should do but often fail to take time for?
4.What are some things that get in the way of following your Shepherd? (Responsibilities, emotions, social media, hobbies, news, etc.)
Have someone pray a prayer of confession for the group. You may use this prayer as a guide:
Heavenly Father we are frail and sinful creatures who trust our own power more than Yours. We want to be the Lord of our own lives, but we fail ourselves, others, and most importantly, we fail You. Thank You Lord for sacrificially leading us by sending Your son to live perfectly and then die on the cross so that we could be made righteous through repentance and faith in Christ. You paved the way to resurrection power through the crucifixion of our sinful selves, so that you could lead us into abundant life in Your grace and mercy forever. We praise and honor Your name, Amen.
