Bible Discussion

Life Application

6. Watch this week’s testimony video. (media page) What is your reaction to this story?
7. Have you experienced a time where Jesus felt near or distant in a difficult season? What was that like?


End your group time by specifically praying for anyone experiencing a difficult season or feeling that Jesus is not here. It’s a good time to reflect whether you believe Jesus is here and that he can get you through anything. Invite the Holy Spirit into your presence so that you may feel comforted and not alone. Continue to pray for each other throughout the week.
