Finding your Purpose Small Group (Free)

This 4-part Bible study workbook on purpose will help your students learn their God-given identities in Christ.

Here is a free Finding Your Purpose small group series for your youth group.
Part 1: Examine Your Experiences

It’s easy to approach Romans 8:28 as some kind of lottery ticket passage that suggests Christians exclusively experience good things. But that’s almost the opposite of what Paul is saying when you look at the context of this chapter. The apostle is explaining that life will be hard and that Christ followers will face tragic life experiences. Paul doesn’t promise bad stuff won’t happen. However, he does promise that God can always bring something good out of our experiences that are bad.

Part 2: Evaluate Your Values

Your daily decisions determine your future destination. You are constantly making decisions, big and small, that build your life. Whenever confronted with a choice, you run it through a filter in your mind. This takes mere moments, but that mental filtration feature is called your “core values.” Your core values guide your life. 

Part 3: Unwrap Your Spiritual Gifts

When Paul wanted to help the church live a fulfilling life, he encouraged them to explore their spiritual gifts. This leads us to a logical question. What is a spiritual gift? Simply put, a spiritual gift is a special ability given by God to be used for God. Whether it’s with a talent, temperament, or skill, there is some special way God has blessed you. 

Part 4: Write Your Purpose Statement

What are you doing to keep focused? It’s much easier to stay focused when you know where you’re trying to go. We have analyzed our life experiences, evaluated our values, and unwrapped our spiritual gifts. Now, it’s time to put it all together by creating an actionable and practical purpose statement.
