On Sunday, April 29, 2018. Matthew preached the message “Two Kinds of People” from Genesis 9:18-29 as part of our current series, re:creation. Below are a few discussion questions for Community Group or personal study this week. To listen to the message again, visit our Audio Resources page. For a PDF of the projection from the message, click here.
1. What are the two kinds of people represented in this passage?
2. Fathers, Matthew taught that as you go, so goes your family. What is the most important thing that you can do to spiritually lead your home? Do you ultimately control the spiritual condition of those in your home?
3. What is the significance of the way that Shem and Japheth responded to sin versus the way that Ham did? Are there areas of life that you too need to “walk backwards” in combating sin? Are there areas that you can help suffer and suppress the sin of those that you are near to?
4. Why did God curse Ham’s son, Canaan, and not solely Ham? How does sin effect not only the individual but also the generations after them? Have you seen the effects of sin throughout the generations of your own family?
