This week will finish reading the book of Job. Hopefully, you have gained some insights into how to help those who are suffering and also to realize that God sees us in our suffering and He does care. We may not know the answer to “why” we suffer, but we can know “who” God is and trust His goodness. The end of this week has us moving back to Genesis to begin looking at the life of Abraham. On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon. Please consider the questions below regarding the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups.
- Sunday, September 16 – Mark 6:30-44
- Monday, September 17 – Job 31-33
- Tuesday, September 18 – Job 34-36
- Wednesday, September 19 – Job 37-39
- Thursday, September 20 – Job 40-42
- Friday, September 21 – Genesis 12-13
- Saturday, September 22 – Genesis 6:5-22; 9:1-15
Do you think Genesis 6:5 could describe the world today?
What does it mean that the Lord was “grieved”, “regretted” and “sorry” that he made man on the earth?
How was God going to judge the world?
Does God show mercy and grace in His judgment? How?
How does Noah respond to God’s grace?
Although only Noah and his family (8 people) get on the ark, do you think Noah shared with others about what was coming? Are we sharing with others about God’s judgment for sin, but also offering grace to those who believe Him?
Am I influencing the world with godliness or am I letting the world influence me?
Can sin thwart God’s purposes?
What sign does God give to show His compassion and mercy?
What parallels to Jesus do you see in this story about Noah and the Flood?
- Sunday, September 23 – Mark 6:45-46
