Groups Discussion Guide – Week of January 14 – Starting Over Sermon Series


Sermon Discussion Guide

1.) What do you hope to do in the future? Spend a few minutes sharing what your hopes and dreams are.

Read Exodus 2:11-25

2.) Reflect on Moses’ regret and how it impacted his decisions. Do you have a regret that you haven’t let go of yet? How does the memory of that regret affect your actions now? How will holding on to that regret impact your future?

3.) Have you ever released a regret? How did that feel? What was the impact on your decisions?

Read Exodus 3

4.) In this passage God has chosen Moses to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Moses argues with God about his suitability for what God is asking him to do. When we release our regrets, we find forgiveness and a new beginning. What are the promises that God had for Moses in Exodus 3, particularly in verses 11-17. What are the promises that we need to cling to as we release regrets and look toward our futures?

5.) Take time to pray with each other for the regrets that we need to let go of. Ask God to help each of you: to release your regrets by speaking them, to seek forgiveness from God and other people, and to give forgiveness to others.
