Spiritual Forgetfulness

When we develop spiritual forgetfulness, we fall prey to division and fighting within the church. This week, Ptr. Jared Co describes the symptoms of this condition and reveals the cure so we can grow together in healthy harmony as the body of Christ.

1. Start with a prayer

2. Engage one another (15-30 mins)
– Have you ever experienced moments where you knew and agreed with the gospel in your head but felt a disconnect because it wasn’t alive in your heart? Share how you bridged the gap.

3. Engage the mind (15-20 mins)
– Read the passage. Where were vv.19-20 originally quoted in the Bible? What is their significance to this passage on worldly wisdom?
– What is the root cause of the Corinthian division, and why does Paul address it by pointing to the gospel?

4. Engage the heart (15-20 mins)
– Be honest: What are you using to fill the void that may be causing spiritual forgetfulness? What can help you get the gospel flowing through your heart?
– Examine yourself: Are there areas in your life where you find yourself falling into the patterns of the symptoms of spiritual forgetfulness? How does it impact your view of yourself and others?

5. Engage the hands (15-20 mins)
– How can you actively combat obsessive comparisons and obsessive grabbing in your life, ensuring that your self-worth is grounded in the truth of the gospel rather than worldly lies?
– In what ways can the practice of preaching the gospel to yourself daily be incorporated into your personal devotional time or community activities? How can this become a transformative habit in your life?

6. Engage with God in prayer (20-30 mins)
– Come before the Heavenly Father with a heart full of praise and gratitude. Thank Him for the profound truth revealed in the gospel–the remedy for your spiritual forgetfulness. Praise Him for the gift of Christ, the source of all wisdom and the One who fills the void in your heart. Thank Him for the richness of His grace and the transformative power of the gospel. Pray that your life may be a continual expression of praise for the incredible reality of being united with Christ.
– Humbly acknowledge moments of spiritual forgetfulness in your life. Ask God for forgiveness for the times you’ve deceived yourself with the empty wisdom of the world, thinking it could replace the true gospel. Repent for the obsessive comparisons and grabbing for worldly treasures, judging yourself through the lies of this world. Ask the Lord to help you daily preach the gospel to yourself, admitting your need for Christ and accepting the abundance you have in Him. In repentance, turn away from worldly lies and embrace the truth of the gospel.
