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

December 9, 2018

Reflect

  • What is your most unexpected Christmas present? 
  • What is the best thing about being a Christian? 
  • How is being a Christian more than you expected?  
  • What did you expect becoming a Christian would be like? 

Repent

  • Have you gotten dull to the impact of the gospel?  
  • What substitutes have you turned to find peace? Augustine said, “Our hearts our restless until we find our rest in Thee.”  

Remember

  • The world does not think peace with God is anything to shout about. Why not? 
  • What would most people think that “peace with God” is? What does Paul mean by that phrase? 
  • How is it different than the “peace of God”? Why must peace with God come prior to the peace of God? 
  • In the context of Romans 1-4, why is it remarkable that Paul can say we stand in grace?
  • How does your prayer life reflect your standing in grace and access to God? Who are you praying for their salvation? Are you praying that God would use you to lead them to Christ? Who are you planning on sharing God’s message of peace with this year? 
  • Who is going to hold you accountable?
  • How does our hope of the future impact our present perspective?
  • How is “knowing” the key to allowing suffering to produce endurance, character, and hope?
  • In what ways is suffering like the cold air that kicks on the thermostat?
  • How do these verses challenge our reaction to the suffering that we encounter?
  • Why does Paul rejoice in suffering? What does it produce?

Discipleship

  • What things in life make you doubt God’s love?
  • How have you seen a permanent peace in your past, grace in your present, and hope in your future?
  • What steps are you taking to helping develop a culture of grace at FCBC?
  • Imagine that tragedy strikes in the life of a Christian friend. He starts to doubt that God loves him and then worries that he is not a real Christian because if he were, God wouldn’t have let this happen. How would you begin to answer him?
