Media is all around us and it has a huge impact on us.  There are some media influences that you cannot avoid, but there are others that you are choosing that will have a negative or positive influence on you.  How does God want us to navigate through this crazy intense Media age?

 

 

Scratch the Surface…

  • High’s and lows
  • If Jesus were on the earth today had an iTunes account, what do you think his favourite band would be? Why?

 

Dig a Little Deeper…

  • Make a list of 10 negative media influences?

  • What types of media do you choose?
  • Do you think that media has any influence on you?
  • Talk about how you think God wants us to think about Media?
  • Should we be careful?  Does God care? Should I do whatever I want?

 

Personal…

Applications…

  • Pray with your group that God would help us in this area

Key Scriptures …

 

Colossians 2:6-10

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.  See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.  For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.

 

John 6:35

 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
