Sermon

Discussion Questions

Discussion Questions:

1. What does it mean that God’s wisdom is a tree of life? How have you traded eating from

the fruit of the Tree of Life for the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil

instead?

2. How has God surprised you with His goodness? How is the process of rain falling on a

field of crops illustrative of God’s work on our behalf?

3. What does listening to God’s instruction and direction have to do with putting things in a

natural order? How have you seen God’s wisdom at work to bring order to chaos?

4. Why would one still encounter hardships if God were blessing them? How well do you

patiently wait upon the processes of God to turn hardships into blessings?

5. What hinders you from turning to the wisdom found in the Scriptures when you encounter

challenges and hardships? Do you trust God’s promises and ways to bring blessings to

your life?

Discussion Questions:

1. What struggles have you had with your flesh driving you to destruction? In what ways have

you resisted God taking over driving your train?

2. How have you focused upon outside actions instead of inside transformation? Why is it so

easy to do this?

3. What things could you point to showing that there is repentance and renewal in your life?

How do these two things show God’s activity in your life and/or in this world?

4. How have you seen the divine working alongside your flesh to proclaim victory and a

different future for you? What security and confidence does it give you to know that

God’s design and call to us is for life to be fulfilled with God and us working together?

5. What does it mean that there is no evolution from flesh to Spirit? Why is it important to

remember this?

1. In what ways have you acted like the sheep from the video in the sermon?

(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f97zwQS6I4o) What hope is there for us? Who will set

us free from the things we fall into?

2. Walking with God and obeying His commands are what set Noah apart from the culture

around him. How would you evaluate your own efforts at this? Are there any areas that

your Connect Group or family can hold you accountable?

3. How have you seen the enemy still chase after you, even though you have been set free?

4. How successful are you at living with the security of no condemnation? What kinds of things

cause you to question this? Are there things you need to remove from your life to help you

stay focused upon this truth?

5. How refreshing is it to know that in baptism you have already passed through judgment?

How does this help you to see that any suffering you face is not condemnation?
