Cell Group Meeting 69
Fathers- Upstairs Cell
1 Living “Upstairs”

Welcome (Ice Breaker)

What is the most adventurous climb you have attempted?

Worship

Word

1. Homework. Did everyone read Hebrews 1-7? What stood out in these chapters? Was there anything you did not understand?

2. Have there been opportunities to talk to people about Jesus?

3. Are there any thoughts on last week's session about the State of the War?
4. Read John 3:1-21. John's gospel is very emphatic about the realm of the spirit (God-led life) and the realm of the flesh (man-led life), drawing contrasts between the two. What terms or symbols are used here to talk about the flesh world? What terms talk about the spirit world?
5. In your daily life are you more aware of the flesh world or the spirit world? What factors make it easier to focus on the spirit world?
6. What regular activities help you to re-focus?
7. As a group we have a choice about where we focus. What is the difference in the life of the group between focussing “above” or “below”?
8. What needs to change to make us the Spirit- baptised, Christ-enabled group that God wants us to be?
9. Pray for the people on the outreach list.
