Run the Race
This discussion guide is meant to be used as a simple, three-step tool to help your small group dive deeper into God’s Word, nurture conversation, and draw your group nearer to Christ. As a leader, begin your group in prayer by asking the Holy Spirit to lead your discussion.
Step 1 Watch
Watch Run the Race with your small group and allow time for reflection and observation after the film is finished.
Step 2 Read
Read Hebrews 11:1-3 &12:1-2; 1 Corinthians 9:24-25; Acts 20:24 and 2 Timothy 4:7 out loud with your group and allow time for reflection and observation of the passage of Scripture.
Step 3 Ask questions
- Read Hebrews 11:1-3. What is the writer mean when he writes about the “things hoped for?” What are you putting your hope in?
- Hebrews 12:1-2 talks about being uniquely designed for Christ’s purposes. What are your dreams for your life? What do you think God’s dreams are for your life? Are they the same?
- How are you looking to Jesus to give you the strength to run the race or are you trying to do it in your own strength?
- Is there purpose in your race? How do you see God equipping you in order to finish the race well?
