Week of Oct 6th
Questions for Discussion:
“The tricky thing about miracles is that not everyone gets the one they prayed for”. Think/Share of a time that you did receive the miracle you had hoped for. Then, a time when you did not. How did each time affect your view of God / His character / your faith?
Jesus proclaims, “I am the Resurrection and the Life” prior to performing this miracle - why do you think that is? How does it impact your faith in the here and now?
Despite not always receiving the miracles or results that we are looking for, how do we continue to pray and live with hopeful expectation when we find ourselves in the midst of another difficult circumstance?
We must stay focused and grounded on what is true about God so that in the midst of difficult circumstances we are not tempted to let them dictate the character of God. How do you do this? What specific practices do you already have in place?
In a world of so much brokenness, pain, and suffering, how can our faith, as the people of God, be a testimony to the character of God?
