Questions week beginning February 17th

These are some questions you may like to discuss in your group or consider individually following the sermon this week. It is not intended that you consider all of them in one sitting, and you could use or or two of them at a time as a daily devotional throughout the week.
 
Read John 2:1-11 – The Wedding at Cana
 
1. What is the thing that strikes you most from this passage of scripture? Why?
2. ‘Do whatever he tells you’ John 2:5 How good are we at doing this faithfully every day in response to Jesus who is the Lord and has authority over our lives?
3. Imagine you were one of the servants filling the water jars – how would you react when you saw what happened?
4. Have you known of or experienced Jesus’ healing or miraculous power in your own life? Share with others if you are able. What effect did it have on you?
5. What spiritual disciplines do you think there are that we should live out in our daily lives? Is there one in particular you could plan to work at in the next few weeks?
6. How important is Communion to you? Why? Do you think we celebrate Communion often enough as a holy sacrament? How does Communion impact your faith?
7. This is Jesus’ first miracle – what other miracles can you think of and what do you think they each achieved?
Pray this week that as a church family we would know the transforming power of the gospel and be able to share it with others.

The scripture passage was Philippians 2:1-11:
1) What does this passage tell us about Jesus and who He is?
2) What encouragements do we have from being united with Christ (v.1) and how much do we experience of them?
3) What should our attitude (mind) be towards others (3-4) – and what is it in reality?
4) What was the attitude (mind) of Christ Jesus (5-8) and what can we learn from it?
5) How can we follow His example in making ourselves nothing (7)? How willing are we for this?
6) What was the end result of Christ’s attitude? How does it make you feel when you read of God’s purposes foretold by Isaiah 45:21-25 and Daniel 7:9-14?
7) Read Ezekiel 34:11-16. How do we see this fulfilled in Christ Jesus?
8) Read Acts 4:7-12. What do you know about the power of the name of Jesus Christ? How can we know more?

This week’s questions

Questions for Sunday Jan 20th 2019

These are some questions you may like to discuss in your group or consider individually following the sermon this week. It is not intended that you consider all of them in one sitting and you could use them one at a time as a daily devotional throughout the week.
 
1. Re-read the passage Luke 2:41-52.
What stands out for you as you read it?
Do you think Jesus was right to stay without his parents?
How do you think Mary and Joseph felt?
Spend time praying for all the lost children in our country and around the world today, so many go missing and are never found.
 
2. Consider the temple in Jesus’ time – it was a busy place. Jesus threw people out as he wanted the temple to be a place of prayer. How can we make our church more of a house of prayer this year?
 
3. Jesus ‘made a whip out of cords and drove all from the temple courts’. How does this contrast with the usual picture of Jesus being peaceful, meek and mild? What do you think about Jesus’ personality and his aggression? What can we learn from this about our attitudes and actions?
 
4. If our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 3:16), how do you think that impacts on how we treat ourselves and our bodies?
Is there anything you think you should change in the light of this knowledge?
 
5. Read Psalm 84. What does this psalm speak of to you? Spend time praising God for who he is and for his blessings.
 
6. What are the things you do where you find God’s presence with you?
What things could you try to change as a result of this sermon and to increase the time you spend at ‘the temple’?
