Missing the Point

Pastor Kaye Kolde

1. Can you remember a story of God trying to teach you a spiritual lesson that you were missing?

2. Read back in Jonah 2:8-9. How does Jonah’s prayer reflect that he may expect God’s mercy for himself but not for others? Discuss why we are prone to do the same, and how the idea of “fundamental attribution error” that Pastor Kaye discussed in the message applies to the story of Jonah?

3. Jonah also talks about making sacrifices and vows, but misses the heart of what God is revealing to him about godly character. Read Micah 6:3-8 and discuss what the Lord wants of us and how you can see almost the opposite in Jonah.

4. "Remembrance of past mercies is a great stimulus to present faith. " – Jerry Bridges

Read 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, and 1 Timothy 1:16. Discuss these scriptures in regard to our formation into what is good, in order to embody the depths of God’s mercy in the world?

5. Each person in the group share honestly one way you have received or are receiving God’s mercy today. Give thanks and pray prayers of praise together, and ask him for the ways you want to grow in the truth of Micah 6:8. If your group is large break into groups of 3 or 4.

This is the Kingdom Coming

Pastor Kaye Kolde

1. In your experience has the idea that Jesus is Healer been an aspect of his identity that has been downplayed in the church? Discuss this statement: "Jesus proclaimed the gospel through healing, and so should the body of Christ today."

2. Gen. 43:27-28 says,“Then he asked them about their well-being, and said, “Is your father well, the old man of whom you spoke? Is he still alive?” And they answered, “Your servant our father is in good health; he is still alive.” 

In Hebrew, the word translated as “well-being”, “well”, and “in good health” is all one word – Shalom. What is your understanding of shalom or wholeness in Christ, and how does it help us understand healing in a more comprehensive way?

3. Read Luke 7:1-10. What do you learn about God and what do you learn about people here?

4. Read Luke 7:11-17. Discuss what these miracles of raising someone from the dead might have symbolized to this culture? What if this happened today?

5. Read Luke 7:18-23. If this is how Jesus confirms his identity as the Messiah, what does this tell us about the King and his kingdom?

6. Split into men and women and discuss the ways we can see our bodies as "bad" and not important to our salvation. Pray for the Lord's power to be at work in your physical body, so you can love him with all your strength!
