Category: Faith

Questions

 Discuss a time you took a big risk.  What was the occasion?  How did it turn out?

 Respond: In our culture of affluence, eliminating risk often becomes our greatest desire and project. 

 Read 2 Chronicles 7:12-22. Some American Christians believe that God promises to bless them if they put him first.  They use 2 Chronicles 7:14 as evidence for this belief.  Are they right or wrong? Why?

 Respond: Jesus promises that our lives will actually be more difficult if we follow him.  As a culture, we are in denial about this.  Instead of leaning in and allowing Jesus to work in and through our suffering, we spend our energy self-medicating, angry at him, and demanding he protect/heal/bless us. 

 Discuss the incredible risk Jesus took to love us.

 Respond: On the cross, Jesus was forsaken by God so we never have to be.
