Sermon in a Nutshell


In your suffering, submit to the sovereign God by crying out for His mercy, listening to His voice, considering His works, and trusting His ways.


Reflect

  • What are the reasons for why Elihu burns with anger against Job?  Against Job’s friends? (32:1-5)
  • If our suffering or well-being is caused solely by our sins or good deeds, who is sovereign?
  • For what does Elihu rebuke Job in Job 33:8-18?

Repent

  • How have you trained your ears not to hear God’s voice?
  • Which of God’s works do you take for granted or fail to appreciate?
  • How does your impatience with God reveal distrust of his ways?

Remember

  • How can our suffering be an expression of God’s mercy rather than his wrath?
  • Why might crying out for God’s mercy be the first step of submitting to God’s sovereignty?
  • Respond to this quote from the sermon, “God is speaking. Not God spoke, but God is speaking.  He is by nature continuously articulate.  He fills the world with His speaking Voice… The voice of God is the most powerful force in nature; indeed it is the only force in nature, for all energy is here only because the power-filled Word is being spoken… The tragedy is that our eternal welfare depends on our hearing, and we have trained our ears not to hear.”[1]

Family Discipleship

  • How has God used each of your senses (sight, smell, touch, taste, hearing) to call you to consider his wondrous works?  Which tends to be the most influential for you?
  • How can we re-train ourselves to listen to God’s voice and consider his works?

Discipleship

  • How is God calling you to trust in his ways?
  • Who can help you (and whom can you help) learn to listen to God’s voice more intently?

SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY


"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.
