Main Idea: Discipline, or sanctification, is the process of replacing wrong habits and values learned in the world with holy habits.
Introduction: Everyone has habits whether you realize them or not. You may call them routines, you may not call them anything. They are embedded routes our minds take with or without a level of consciousness. Have you ever arrived somewhere and don’t remember the drive at all?
Discussion Starter: If we were to write down all our habits – good, bad, and ugly – from the start of the day to the time our heads hit the pillow; what would we discover about ourselves? What do our habits say about us? What do we want them to say about us?
Primary Scriptures: 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18, Hebrews 10:25, Acts 20:35, Luke 6:38, Acts 13:3, James 4:8, Psalm 1:2, Psalm 95:1-2, 2 Timothy 2:2 & Hebrews 5:14
Each of the 7 bible verses discusses one, or more, of the holy habits that Pastor Chris talks about in the sermon. Read each of the verses and identify which discipline the verse is referring to. Read 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18, Acts 20:35, Luke 6:38 & Acts 13:3, James 4:8, Psalm 1:2, & Psalm 95:1-2
Are there other verses you can think of that highlight these habits?
What is the importance of Hebrews 10:25 and how can we apply it to our lives? Think specifically about solidifying the holy habits in our lives.
Using both of the scriptures from the sermon, 2 Timothy 2:2 & Hebrews 5:14, and applying them to our list of holy habits, what can we conclude?
