LIFE GROUP Discussion Guide 


  • When did you feel particularly grateful to God?  Why?

Going Deeper and Applying

  • Read 1 Thessalonians 5:16
  • Why is it difficult to rejoice always?
  • When have you experienced something bad that later turned out for good? At what point did you find joy?  How would that experience been if you had claimed joy earlier?
  • Read 1 Thessalonians 5:17
  • For you, which is more difficult: To talk to God or to listen to God?  Why?
  • Share a time when God guided you to the right decision.  How did you sense His guidance?
  • Read 1 Thessalonians 5:18
  • Giving thanks to God in all things means trusting His grace wins out.  How have you seen His grace win out?
  • The three commands – rejoice, pray, give thanks – are the will of God for you.  Give yourself a score, on a scale of 1-100 on these three items.  What’s your score?  Why?  If you want to lower your score and do less of the will of God, what should you do?  If you want to raise your score and do more of the will of God, what should you do?
