We started a new series this week on the six core values we have set for our Home Group ministry. We'll cover one core value each week for the next six weeks. We started with Devote Daily, Brandon made it clear as Christians we're called to live in community with other believers and the only way we can do that is by being connected daily to the One who gives us strength, Jesus.

Key Text: John 15:1-8
How have you grown spiritually in the past year? In what areas would you like to keep growing?
What spiritual disciplines do you practice? Which are the most life-giving to you? Why do you think that is?
What have been your motivations for developing spiritual disciplines in your life? Have they been for legalistic reasons, or for true devotion?
Are you a naturally disciplined person, or do you struggle to be disciplined?
How do you see your home group helping you with spiritual discipline?
What impact does your personal devotional life have on your home group?
Discuss the difference between practicing spiritual discipline and abiding with Christ. Share how you feel you’re doing in these two areas.
Describe a time when you were practicing spiritual disciplines but not necessarily experiencing intimacy with Jesus.
How can we as a group help each other abide more intimately with Jesus? Be specific.
