1. Open in prayer

2. Watch Video (62 min.)

(or individual reflection)

(1) What are some of the ways in which C.S. Lewis was influenced by other Christians?

(2) How have you been influenced by other Christians? Are there particular Christian authors who have influenced you?

(3) Have you experienced being part of a small prayer group? If so, what was the nature of the group, and do you think it was helpful to you/other members in walking with the Lord?

(4) Have you had a Christian mentor?

(5) In what ways do you influence other people? How would you like to influence other people?

(1 page)

5. Close in prayer

Personal Action Steps
(1) Do you have a spiritual mentor, e.g., a pastor, elder or mature believer, who you periodically meet with and consult for counsel? Are you part of a small prayer group? If not, what steps might you take to find a spiritual mentor and/or become part of a small prayer group? Pray about whether this is something that would help you in your walk with the Lord. If you’re interested in this but not sure how to proceed, ask your pastor about it.

(2) Identify two books by Christian authors that you believe would be beneficial for you to read in the next couple of months. Some suggested authors to consider are A.W. Tozer, Oswald Chambers, C.S. Lewis, Jerry Bridges, Philip Yancey, and Tim Keller. Write down how you will obtain the books and when you plan to read them.

(3) Reflect on how you influence other people. Pray that God would show you specific opportunities to have a positive impact on the spiritual growth of other people. Are you a spiritual mentor to one or more people? If not, have you prayed about whether that is something God would have you pursue?
