This week’s Discussion Questions

The facilitator will use these questions to help us discuss the message from Sunday (5/31) . Please take some time to think through and write down your answers. We look forward to hearing what God is showing you.

Here is a quick video for this week’s questions:

 

[Rom 15:1-6 NIV] 1 We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. 2 Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up. 3 For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: “The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.” 4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. 5 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, 6 so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1.)GTKY: what’s the worst or funniest gift you’ve ever received?
2.)Our passage mentioned the stronger and weaker brother. When you first heard it which description did you immediately identify with and why?
3.) Rich suggested we first try really listening to people we disagree with, even if they are speaking heresy. What are some barriers you have to simply listening to someone you disagree with and how could you overcome them?

4.) Rich mentioned that sometimes people who seem angry at people are really angry at God. What are some lies about God the enemy has tried to get you to believe? How does the gospel dispel some of those lies?

5.) Can you remember a time in your life where you had to endure a long period of difficulty. What things did you do that were helpful and that kept you trusting God? Or maybe there was a time where you felt like you gave up or quit trusting God, how did you make it through that time?
6.)What are some ways we can build up other Christians we know that maybe we disagree with or consider weaker? Choose 1 or 2 people and write down their name and maybe 3 areas that you could pray for them that build them up this week.
