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

October 14, 2018

Reflect


  • How have you heard the term “spirit-filled” used? That’s a “spirit-filled” church! What does spirit-filled mean to you?
  • Would I rather be a part of business meeting that chooses the color of carpets or share the gospel with my neighbor over a fence? Would I rather be a church worker be or have a difficult personal meeting where you need to rebuke a friend about his/her sinful behavior? Why?
  • What is your spiritual gift? How are you using it?

Repent

  • In the past, have I been watching for the Father’s work around me or planning and doing my own work for the Father?With what have you tried to fill your life from the outside in?
  • What do you need to yield to God if you are to abdicate the throne of your life?
  • How have you tried to fix problems externally vs. eternally? How has our church tried to fix problems externally vs. eternally?

Remember

  • Who is the model God has given to us to understand how to experience His intimacy and power by relying on the Holy Spirit?
  • While on earth, what did Jesus do with every assignment God gave him? How does it change your perception of his obedience if you believe that he did it all in the power of the Holy Spirit and not his own deity.
  • What does it mean to be filled with the Holy Spirit? Can you get more of the Spirit or is it more a matter of the Holy Spirit getting more of you? Why or why not, biblically?
  • How is one filled with the Holy Spirit?
  • What are marks of a Spirit-filled Christian?
  • Can you be a Spirit-filled Christian isolated from other believers?
  • How is Colossians 3:16 and Ephesians 5:18 symmetrical?
  • Consider Moses’ example: Will every assignment from God be in the area of what I think I am fit for?
  • What are some reasons why external change is appealing to us as human beings? Why does God seek heart change?
  • Why does ministry require urgency and patience?

Discipleship

  • What is God working in you now? What step of faith are you being called to take towards a Spirit-filled life?
  • If I am to join God in His work, what must I watch for? How can you practically look at all my relationships redemptively?
  • Once I know where God is working by seeing or hearing the hurt in others, what are the four things I can do?
  • If ministry is about people and not programs, how are you helping people grow in the knowledge of the Lord to walk in a manner worthy of his calling (Ephesians 4:1)?
  • If we want every member to be a ministry, how does that shift our vision from running events to training people?
