Looking Back and Looking Ahead

January 10, 2021 Speaker: Kyle Schwahn Series: Looking Back, Looking Ahead

Scripture: Colossians 3:16–3:17

SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION

- How would you summarize the year 2020? Did it ever feel like God wasn't paying attention in 2020? What do you think God was doing in 2020?

- When you look back at 2020, were there any good things that happened for you? Were there any good things that happened for Indian Trail Church? What good things impacted you the most?

- Looking ahead, what do you expect 2021 will be like? Will God be in control in this year, too?

- In Colossians 3:16, what is "the word of Christ?" How can the gospel of Christ dwell in someone richly? What are some examples of this in your life? What are some examples of gospel teaching, gospel admonishing and gospel singing in your life? Why do we do these things? (hint: read Colossians 1:28)

- Pastor Kyle invented the acronym MAP IT for our body to use to sincerely and transparently build one another up in Christ. Explain each part:
