God at Work – The Power of a Godly Life

TAC – God at Work – The Power of a Godly Life by Tacblogs on Mixcloud

1. Describe your favourite job to date and why you liked it.

2. This week the focus is upon one’s impact in the workplace. Describe someone who had a positive impact on you in a work environment. Why were they able to have such an impact on you?

3. Read 1 Peter 2.

4. God wants to manifest Himself through us in the workplace. Do you agree with this statement or not? Many believe that faith is a private matter: for the home and the church only. How would you respond to someone who asserted this?

5. Do you consider your workplace to be favourable to the Gospel? Why or why not? What should our response to disfavour be?

6. Consider the impact of a godly life. Read verse 12 again. What is Peter saying here? What would honourable conduct at your workplace look like? What could the result of such conduct be? How can we nourish a godly life?

7. Consider the impact of submission. Does a Christian have the responsibility to obey his or her boss, even if they are unfair or harsh? Defend your position from Scripture. What helps us walk through difficult times in life?

8. As a group, share the name of one unbeliever at each of your workplaces. Pray for these people by name, that God would lead them into His kingdom.

God at Work – 1 Luke 1

1. For the next several weeks we are planning to focus on living for God in the workplace. Go around your group and share:

i. The job you wanted to have when you were a child and why;

ii. What your current job is (if you do not work for an income, share what you spend your days doing: student, volunteer, searching for a job, stay-at-home parent, etc.). How does your commitment to Christ express itself in your “workplace”? What Bible verses guide you when it comes to working?

2. Read 1 Peter 1.

3. Pastor Bill said that when we are settling matters of identity in our workplace, we need to understand the nature of our citizenship. What does this passage say about our citizenship? What are some of the benefits and responsibilities that we have because of our citizenship?

4. When settling matters of identity in the workplace, we need to understand the nature of our access to God. What did Bill mean when he spoke about this? How does understanding our access to God help us thrive in the workplace?

5. When settling matters of identity in the workplace, we need to understand the nature of our nobility. We are God’s children. What difference should this make to our lives at work?

6. What is one thing you can do this week to better shine for Christ in your “workplace”?
