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.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

October 6, 2019

Reflect

  • What place do biographies serve in the Christian life? What biographies have influenced you the most in your Christian walk? How do Christians protect against making another Christian a “monument” and keep them as another set of footsteps to walk in? 
  • Should Christians be aware of the long line of Christians that have come before them? If someone is ignorant of the Church’s history, what handicaps might we see in their life? How can Christians better use the past to better know where we are going in the future?  

Repent

  • Getting sucked into the world’s definition of success.

Remember

  • Why did Judson define Christian ministry as “many small deaths?” How does “many small deaths” summarize the message and means of Christian ministry? 
  • Judson struggled if his ambition was only masked as spiritual when in essence it was pride. Can ambition be holy? How can ambition be redeemed? 
  • In 40 minutes we walked through some of the life of Adoniram Judson. Was seeing the big picture helpful in developing patience in Christian maturity in our instantaneous society? Why or why not?  
  • According to Romans 1:18, cross-cultural mission is non-negotiable. How would you answer someone who thinks we should not proselytize, evangelize? Why do people need to be evangelized?  

Discipleship

  • Sit down and discuss with a friend what is your ambition in life. What does it look like to be available and strategic for the gospel at your age and stage in life? 
  • Paul assumed any Christian will take risks for the advancement of the gospel. Who will you allow to evaluate your risk to security ratio in your Christian walk? Where do you feel like God nudging you to risk trusting him? Are you living in a way that makes people say, “The only way that makes sense is if the resurrection is true”? In other words, if the resurrection were not true, would your life still make sense?  
  • What are some of the small deaths you have experienced in ministry?  
  • What parallels do you see between Judson and modern day missionaries?
