On Sunday, December 16, 2018, Matthew preached the message “The Weak Will Prevail” from Genesis 32-33 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.

Discussion Questions:

1. Matthew taught that the weak who prevail respond to their circumstances in light of God’s promises. What does this mean? How do you see Jacob do this in this passage?

2. Why is it so important to meditate on the nearness of God in good times as opposed to just waiting for when suffering comes? Do you practice this in your daily life?

3. What is the significance of Jacob identifying himself as Esau’s servant? How does this present an act of humility?

4. Define despondence. Why is an attitude of despondence a big problem? How do you most struggle with this? What are the arrogant assumptions behind an attitude of despondence?

5. Matthew taught that the weak who prevail receive God’s deliverance as an expression of God’s goodness. How have you experienced His goodness?

6. At the end of this passage, Jacob refers to God as El-Elohe-Israel. What does this mean? What hope does such name give you?
