Below is a brief review of our meeting on Sunday, followed by a few discussion questions for Community Group or personal study this week.
Matthew welcomed all and opened our time together with announcements and a Call to Worship.
Matthew and Matthew Giannini shared about the upcoming Sunday School classes this spring at KingsWay.
We sang Show Us Christ in preparation for the message.
Josh preached the message “Take Care How You Hear” from Luke 8:1-18 as a short break from our current series, Dominion: The Book of Daniel. To listen to Josh’s message again, visit our Audio Resources page.
After the message we sang Spirit of God and Josh closed our meeting with a benediction.
1. Josh taught that, when we hold fast, God’s word will grow in us and we will win the battle against anger and fear. What does this change look like in the mundane ways of daily life?
2. In what ways are our hearts like soil? What is the connection between the condition of our heart and how we listen and respond to God’s word?
3. Is there anything that occurs regularly in your life (coming to church late, not listening well, struggling for focus) that distracts from your heart’s ability to fully receive God’s word?
4. What should we do if we feel a weightiness in this area, and realize that having a heart of “fertile soil” is very difficult? How does the Holy Spirit help us? How have you already seen God’s faithfulness in this area of your life?
