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

February 20, 2018

Reflect

  • Why are you discouraged? Health? Ideals? With God? 

Repent/Prayer

  • And it is remembering the sovereignty of God that helps us overcome this discouragement. The Heidleberg Catechism picks up this same langue in the Lord’s Day 10 when it explains what we understand by the sovereignty of God and how it helps us, “We can be patient when things go against us, thankful when things go well, and for the future we can have good confidence in our faithful God and Father that nothing will separate us from his love.” 
  • What step in overcoming discouragement are you avoiding? Staring with God? Listening Obediently? Working Diligently? Worshiping Redemptively? Celebrating Joyfully?  

Remember

  • If you really believed that God was sovereign, how would that change your outlook on your marriage, parenting, employment, recreation, giving, mission? 
  • Are you surprised that 2 prophets were instrumental in the “building program”? Why or why not? (Ezra 6:14, 18). 
  • How have you reacted when people have counseled you to “Let go and let God?” What sounds true about that phrase? What is wrong with this phrase (2 Pet. 1:5; Phil. 2:12-13; 1 Tim. 4:7)? 
  • Why does reminding ourselves of our ultimate victory in Christ a necessary component in overcoming discouragement? 
  • Look up Isaiah 31:5 and 1 Kings 18:21, 26 (birds hovering; hover b/w branches; flutter) to trace the verb “pass-over” in the Hebrew Scriptures. What’s the theological difference between passing by and hovering/covering-over? 
  • According to Acts 18:9-10, how does God’s sovereignty ignite a passion for evangelism? 
  • What about God’s providential care, provision, or productivity through us that we can celebrate? How can you celebrate joyfully when we go through trials that make it seem that He doesn’t care? See James 1:2-5. 

Discipleship

  • How could you improve in working hard at listening obediently?  
  • Where are you asking God to work? 
  • Where is God calling you to work? 
  • Who are you going to share what God is teaching you?
