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

8.18.2019

Reflect

  • Are you enjoying Luke’s story-telling through Acts? Contrast a blueprint, technique model of building a church and a story-telling model of building a church? Why do you think Luke chose story-telling to form a group of people into a community of believers—a church?
  • The power of story also is a way to evangelize. Can you tell your story using the 4 points from Sunday’s sermon? Can you share it in 5 minutes or less?   

Repent

  • D. Martin Lloyd-Jones said, “The ultimate test of our spirituality is our amazement at the grace of God.” Repent for not thinking we need grace instead of realizing more and more how much it is all about grace.
  • Who do you have a hard time believing that they can be saved? 
  • Are we ready to open our faith family to a new brother or sister even if it is a Saul of Tarsus? 
  • What makes you feel disqualified from ministry?  

Remember

  • What was Saul doing when the Lord pursued him?
  • What is significant about the Lord’s repetition of his name, “Saul, Saul”? 
  • What role does Ananias’ vision play in the conversion of Saul?  
  • What is significant about Ananias addressing Saul as “Brother, Saul”?  
  • What is the church’s reaction to Saul’s conversion? 
  • Agree or disagree: a soul doesn’t get changed without the church changing too. 
  • Why do you think Paul shares his testimony over and over again (consider 1 Cor. 15:9; Gal. 1:13; Phil. 3:6; 1 Tim. 1:13). 

Discipleship

  • Play/sing/memorize = His Mercy is More · 
  • How do you live like a new person with a new purpose even though you wake up with the same family, job, house, friends? 
  • Why does God wait so long to save some people’s souls? What was Paul’s answer in 1 Tim. 1:15-16?
