On Sunday, June 24, 2018, Chris preached the message, “God’s Promise of Covenant with Abram” from Genesis 15 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 projection from the message, please click here.
1. Chris taught that, as humans, we often desire to know how God is going to work before He actually does. Where is the root of this desire? Is it wrong to ask the Lord for things that we need or want? Do you ever experience any hesitancy in approaching God with your requests?
2. In Genesis 15, how did God guarantee His promises to Abram? Explain the occurrences of His demonstration of the covenant. What happened? What was the significance of each of God’s actions?
3. While this passage may seem unusual or confusing, why is it paramount that we understand the theological significance of what happens in Genesis 15? How is God emphasizing the immutability of His character by swearing such an oath by His own name?
4. Are there promises of the Lord that you struggle to believe? What is the solution to combat such fear? On a practical note, what can you do on a daily basis to remind yourself of the verity of God’s words?
