Weathering Life's Storms
Topic: New Testament Expository Passage: Acts 27:1–27:44
Week 64 of a 68 week series in which we will be exploring the book of Acts in a series titled "The Church: Continuing What Jesus Began." This series will not just be a travelogue through the early church's history. It will be a reminder for us of what Jesus did on the earth in his tough, compassionate, loving, healing deeds and what he said on the earth in his truthful, authoritative, convicting, comforting teaching was only the beginning of his doing and his teaching.
Theme: "If we will trust in God’s sovereign care for us in life’s storms, He will use us to bear witness to many."
- Read aloud the above Scripture and talk about what stood out to you. This could be Scripture alone or it could something that the sermon pointed out to you from Sunday.
- Why is the doctrine of God’s sovereignty very practical in life’s storms? Why is a denial of it a serious error?
- If we can’t determine God’s will by the absence of trials, how can we know that we are in His will?
- Exactly how should Christians be different than the world in the midst of trials? Is it wrong to cry or express grief?
- Someone asks, “If God is totally sovereign, why pray or evangelize?” Your response?
- So, what are we, as individuals and as a Missional Community, going to do with this section of Scripture? What is God calling us to be? What is God calling us to do?
