Small group (or personal) discussion questions related to Ephesians 1:15-23.
Small Group Discussion Questions (Ephesians 1:15-23)
- Read Ephesians 1:15-23
- On a scale from 1-10 (where 1 is very distant and 10 is very close), how close is your relationship with God? What made you answer the way that you did?
- The Bible is full of facts that we can read, memorize, and know. However, Ephesians 1:15-23 indicates that to really UNPACK and experience all that God has for us, we need God to give us supernaturally a sense of understanding of the riches He has given us. Do you regularly pray for this kind of understanding? Why or why not?
- Specifically, Paul prays that the Ephesians would understand “the hope of their calling,” “the riches of their inheritance,” and “the immeasurable greatness of His power toward us who believe.” In your own words, what do each of these requests really mean?
- Think of any group of Christians, or individual Christians God has placed in your life. Could be a small group, a neighbor, family members, or friends. Would you consider committing to pray for them for the next 30 days Paul’s prayer from Ephesians 1:15-23? If you are doing this study as a group, share who you are praying with as a group, and consider praying as a group together for these important people in your lives.
- Any particular application you took away from this passage this week?
