On Sunday, August 26, 2018, Josh Kruger preached a message from Genesis 20 as a 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 projected content from the message, click here.
1. Josh taught that Abraham’s sin had the potential to bring great calamity on the house of Abimelech. Why was this? Why did his actions not bring disaster? How do you see God’s sovereign plan preserved in this passage?
2. When Abimelech realized his folly, he did not delay his obedience. Is this something that is easy or difficult for you? How can you strive to emulate this heart attitude for quick repentance and correction you realize you have done something wrong?
3. Why is this old passage such good news to us today? What was most encouraging to you when you consider how God calls us, protects his plan, and uses us regardless of our earthly condition?
4.What is your overall response to this message? Do you ever struggle believing that God can use you, that His plans are sovereign?
