They requested Festus, as a favor to them, to have Paul transferred to Jerusalem, for they were preparing an ambush to kill him along the way. (Acts 25:3 NIV)
How To Strengthen Life’s Joints:
1. BE FIRM ON KEEPING PROMISES. A person who promises a gift but doesn’t give it is like clouds and wind that bring no rain. (Proverbs 25:14 NLT)
2. GET OFF THE POPULARITY BANDWAGON.
Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant. (Galatians 1:10 NLT)
YOU & GOD MAKE THE MAJORITY.
3. DO THE RIGHT THING EVEN WHEN NOBODY’S WATCHING. At midnight I will rise to give thanks to You, because of Your righteous judgments. (Psalm 119:62 NKJV)
Life Group Discussion: 1. What are some personal joints in your life that is spiritually healthy? What are some joints that are spiritually unhealthy and how can you remedy it? 2. Have you broken a promise? What does that communicate to those around you? 3. Discuss how popularity has “spiritually kidnapped” much of society? How has the bandwagon of society attacked the Christian faith? 4. Do you find it difficult or easy to do the right thing when nobody’s watching? For those who find it easy, please exhort and encourage the weaker vessels on how we can uphold doing what is right.
