SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY


Weekly Discussion Questions to assist in your time together are listed below.

"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." Acts 2:42

Fellowship isn't just something we do on Sunday mornings. It's gathering together in various groups to discuss Scripture, enjoy each others' company, support each other, share meals, and pray with and for one another. And while we do these things in many ways in our whole-church Sunday gatherings, meeting together through the week in smaller groups allows us to do this in a more intimate setting, allowing us to grow deeper in our relationships with each other and with God.


If you would like to know more about the small groups, please feel free to contact the leaders directly, or you can talk to a pastor or elder, a person who attends a group, or someone in the office.

Small Group Discussion Questions

A Political Savior: Making Sense of God and Government


Mark 12:13-17


Reflect

  • What is your general disposition towards authority? 
  • Why do you think that is? 
  • Share about an experience when you have felt like a “someone was out to get you” by trying to “trap you in your words.” 

Repent

  • For not seeing, savoring, trusting God’s authority; for not praising Him for His authority; for not living under His authority. 

Remember

  • Does every government need to be aligned with the one true God to be legitimate? 
  • Why or why not? What makes a government legitimate?
  • If Christ (Mark 12), Paul (Romans 13), Peter (1 Peter 2) can support Rome, what government can Christians not learn to live in?
  • What have you rendered to Caesar that you should be rending to God?

Discipleship

  • How does your view of the Christian life change when you understand we follow a rejected, crucified Messiah?
  • How have you trusted God when Jesus’ authority was not discernible?
  • How has Christ’s authority over heaven and earth propelled you to sacrificial love for others?
  • Look back at your week. Consider your conversations, posts, what you read, what you watched. Does it reflect a trust in Christ’s authority or a trust in politics? Does it reflect a living for the eternal city or the American dream?
