J1:Session 3

Coach GuideJ1:Session 3

Purpose/Objective

Participants are able to tell their story succinctly and listen to other participants’ stories for greater clarity in interpreting their own.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: We will practice Three-Way Listening throughout this journey: 1. To the Holy Spirit for counsel and conviction; 2. To one another for encouragement and insight; and 3. To ourselves for awareness and response.

  • Give each participant time to write down 3 insights from each chapter on Page 11 in their Orange Notebook.
  • Explain how the sharing time will work, walking through how people will take notes in their participation guide.
  • Facilitate sharing: Give each person 7-8 minutes to share their story and allow the group 2 minutes to ask questions once they are done sharing.

Purpose/Objective

To help participants see how the core temptations of the enemy are trying to sabotage their narrative, and how the power of the Gospel helps redeem their story.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: A Life Drift is when we tend to multiply our brokenness by medicating our primary issues with secondary issues, instead of going to the cross with our brokenness.

  • Introduce Appetite, Approval and Ambition as the life drifts through Luke 4:1-14.
  • Demonstrate how we often multiply our own brokenness by moving from one to the other.
  • Show how ‘at the cross’ Jesus addresses each of these drifts (Gospel).
  • Highlight that He was led into the desert full of the Holy Spirit and on the other side of temptations is empowered by the Spirit – the same empowerment Christ followers have today.
  • Identify core issues for each of the three A’s and the lie behind each core issue. Reiterate that Satan contextualizes these lies to each person (not everyone hears them the same way).
  • Show, and give examples, of how the three A’s become Celebrity, Consumerism and Competition in American Culture.

Purpose/Objective

In identifying key moments in their life where they multiplied brokenness or took it to the cross, participants will take the first step in seeing more breakthrough in the future (identification of patterns in the past is always step #1).

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Knowing our drift patterns can become transformational. Being a disciple is about recognition and recovery – do we see our brokenness and turn to the cross? Growth happens when the time gap between recognition and recovery decreases.

  • Have participants go back to their life story and identify which Life Drift they struggled with in each chapter, thinking through how they either multiplied brokenness or took it to the cross, writing it down on the ‘My Life Drifts’ worksheet.
  • Have them spend time filling out the Life Drifts Grid: Directly identify the lies they were tempted to believe about God, life and themselves. Then, identify the Gospel truth they now believe, or are learning to believe, in light of each lie (Life Truth).

Context-Specific Tips

  • Weekly Cohort

    POTENTIAL PRE-WORK: Life Drifts Video teaching with instructions for Life Drifts Grid can be completed prior to weekly session to maximizing sharing/coaching time.

Purpose/Objective

By sharing and listening to life drifts, we not only step into the opportunity for the healing of some of our wounds, but in the future we learn to apply Gospel truth to situations before we multiply brokenness. In addition, through listening to others, it continues to help us identify drifts that we are not originally able to see for ourselves because of mutual blind spots.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Three-Way Listening opportunity: 1. To the Holy Spirit for counsel and conviction; 2. To one another for encouragement and insight; and 3. To ourselves for awareness and response.

  • Explain how the sharing time will work, walking through how people will take notes in their participation guide.
  • Facilitate sharing: Give each person 5 minutes to share their Primary/Secondary Drifts in each chapter and highlight a dominant lie and subsequent truth in their story.
