HOME GROUPS - SEPTEMBER 2015
FROM THE MOUTH OF GOD - CHAPTER 9 WHAT'S THE USE?
1. Martin Luther wrote the hymn: A Mighty Fortress Is Our God. One translation says:
God’s word and plan, which they pretend
is subject to their pleasure,
will bind their wills to serve God’s end,
which we, who love him, treasure.
Then let them take our lives,
goods, children, husbands, wives,
and carry all away;
theirs is a short-lived day.
Ours is the lasting kingdom.
Is the word of God treasured by you more than those things Luther lists? If so, why? If not, why not? How important is the Bible?
2. If all this chapter says is true why don't we read the Bible more: often, carefully, thoughtfully, closely, enthusiastically, fully (every page), prayerfully, obediently......?
3. Why is it important to believe that the Bible is the word of God, that it is, 'the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth'?
4. In the light of what he says at the bottom of page 157 about standing firm do you think it becomes easier or harder to stand firm as you get older?
5. Jesus was the most 'normal' man who has ever lived - see page 161. Why are so few Christians today very 'normal'? What can we do to make ourselves 'more normal'?
