Title: Becoming A Clear Signpost
Text: Philippians 2:12-16

The way we lead our lives in the world shows the world who Jesus is and what He has done in our lives. What does it mean to be a signpost for God? What difference can you make for God in the marketplace?

General Questions:
1) According to Philippians 2:12-16, what is God’s purpose for every believer? How does living out God’s purpose look in your context, for example, as a child, as a spouse, parent or an employee?

2) How do you think inner transformation occurs? What is a personal story of how God has moulded and refined you to be more like Christ?

Perspective Questions:
1) What do you think is the difference between “working for” and “working out” your salvation? When someone works out, he/she can look forward to a fitter and healthier body. What do you think believers can look forward to when they work out their salvation?

2) How challenging do you think it is to be ‘blameless and pure’ and to ‘hold out the word of life’ as what Paul encouraged the believers to do? What do you think Paul meant when he said that it is God working in us to will and act according to His good purpose?

3) Who is someone you would consider a marketplace minister? Do you see yourself as a marketplace minister? Why or why not?

Application Questions:
1) How do you think you can be a signpost in where God has placed you? Which of the four ways do think you can start applying in your life (i.e. pray faithfully, connect relationally, love practically, and share boldly) to bring light to the marketplace? What is stopping you?
