Big Idea: Repentance is a lot more than saying, "I'm Sorry."
(this study accompanies a sermon from 2 Corinthians 7)
Have someone read 2 Peter 3:9. God will one day judge, why is He holding back his judgment right now? What is He waiting for?
Give some examples of the difference between just saying "Sorry" and truly repenting.
Why do some people have such a hard time repenting?
Have someone read Revelation 2:1-5.
Can you look back at a time in your life when you really loved God? Do you need to return to that? How can repentance be the first step in returning?
Has this group fallen away from our first love at all? Are there things we need to return to? Are there things for which we as a group need to repent?
Do you have any relationships which have fallen apart? How can repentance to another person help restore a relationship?
In light of this discussion, what is the next step God is calling you to?
What should be the next step be for our group?
