LIFE IN THE SON - Here's Your Sign

Sermon-Based Bible Study
January 15, 2017

  • What are you thankful for this week? What are you celebrating? What has caused stress or anxiety in your world this week?

  • What did you hear in this week’s sermon that was new or particularly interesting? Did anything stand out to you as puzzling or troubling?

  • What was the last wedding reception you attended like? When it comes to weddings, and how much money one should spend on them, where do you fall? Why do you think weddings are such a big deal in so many cultures?

  • Read John 2:1-11. A.W. Tozer said “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” If you assume that Jesus is the exact representation of God, what is it about this story that is consistent with your image of God? What is it about this story that challenges your image of what God is like?

  • Read Mark 2:13-17 and Luke 7:31-33. What insight do these passages give you into what the religious leaders of Jesus’ day believed God was like? Is your view of God similar to theirs? How is your view of what God is like different from the religious leaders of Jesus day? Chris said the Jesus is the “Life of the Party.” Is that consistent with the way you think of Jesus? Do you think it is consistent with what the religious leaders of Jesus’ day thought of Him?

  • Read Deuteronomy 14:22-26. Chris reminded us that the things we call “blessings” are only really blessings where the Lordship of Jesus is present. How does this passage speak to that idea?

  • Read John 2:5. Chris said this is discipleship in a nutshell. In regard to the “blessings” of this world (food, drink, sex, work, money, etcl) – will you do whatever He tells you? Of all the different “blessings” we receive from God (food, drink, work, sex, money, etc.) which do you have the most trouble submitting to the Lordship of Jesus?

  • In the next 24-48 hours, what simple next step could you take in obedience to what you’ve learned from your time in God’s Word? Who would benefit from hearing what you’ve learned this week? Will you share it with them?
