All Things New (Genesis 17)

Read Genesis 17:1-8

  • What do you think God meant when he told Abraham to "Walk before me and be blameless."?
  • How would your life change if every step you took you remembered that God was watching you? Would your life be more blameless? Why or why not?
  • Abram means "exalted father" and Abraham means "father of a multitude." Why do you think God changed Abram's name to Abraham even though he only had one son at the time?
  • Why do you think Abraham believed God's promises? How do you think Abraham was able to wait so long for God to keep his promises?
  • Which promises of God are important to you? Why?
  • If God were going to start a new thing in your life, what do you think He would do?

Read 2 Corinthians 5:17 and rewrite it in your own words

  • Do you believe these words are descriptive of you? Why or why not?
  • What changes in your life do these verses inspire you to consider?

Read Ephesians 4:17-24

In your old life, you walked in darkness. Your new life is lived in the light of the Son of God.
  • How would you describe the "former way" of living? What are some things the old you would have done that the new you won't?
  • What old things are still lingering in your life? How can you take action to push those things out of your life?
  • If every day is the opportunity for a fresh start, how will you make tomorrow better than today?
