Sermon Discussion Questions – May 7, 2017

    Each week God speaks powerfully each through the message on Sunday. We encourage our D Groups to dig deeper by discussing specific questions in the context of their community and personal growth. These questions are for D Group leaders or any member of Fellowship who want to engage with the mission of our church.

    History of Grace - May 7, 2017
    Genesis 32
    Brandon Barnard, Little Rock Campus

    Read through the passage as a group.

    1. Think about Jacob’s looming meeting with Esau. Jacob also had a very unusual interaction with God. What are some of the things Jacob might be thinking about himself? About God?

    2. In this interaction, Jacob followed his usual pattern by trying to control his outcome. Jacob wrestled with God but would not relent until he had received a blessing. In what ways do you control others or manipulate situations for your own benefit?

    3. The fact that Jacob physically wrestled with God can be confusing for many people. But looking at the context of Jacob’s life we see that God wanted Jacob in a place where he was willing to give up his own struggle and allow God to do the struggling for him. Where do you cling to control and need to surrender to God?

    4. In this story we see the grace and “new identity” God gave to Jacob come only through his brokenness. By His grace, God allows us to wrestle with him. He is willing to take on our anger and junk. But in the process He wants to give us a new identity. What are some of the aspects of the new identity or, “name” God offers to you by His grace in Christ?

    5. Jacob’s experience with God was marked by a dislocated hip and a limp that followed him the rest of his life. In Hebrews 11:21, we see that Jacob was able to worship God through his brokenness. In 2 Corinthians 12:9 God told the apostle Paul, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” How has God been glorified in your weakness?
