On Sunday, June 29, 2014, I preached a message based out of Ephesians 4:1-16 at Wildwood Community Church.  Below you will see a list of questions for group discussion tied to this sermon.

Small Group Discussion Questions (Eph. 4:1-16)

  1. Read Ephesians 4:1-16
  2. What is one blessing that Christ has given you that you have not ever really “unpacked”?  (i.e. the Bible says it is true, but you have never really experienced it or lived it out?)
  3. One blessing that God gave us is unity in the church.  Paul admonishes the Ephesians to put forth several attitudes that help maintain unity in the church in 4:1-3 (humility, gentleness, patience, bearing with one another, wagering pursuing peace).  How would being a part of a church where these attitudes were displayed help maintain unity?
  4. What relationships in your life could be improved in your family and in the church if you acted according to Ephesians 4:1-3?
  5. In Ephesians 4:4-6, a series of “one” statements are made that create the core of our unity.  Which of these seven “one” statements specifically encourages you to pursue unity in the church?
  6. According to Ephesians 4:7-16, if we know Christ we have been gifted by Him for the purpose of encouraging others to mature in their faith.  How does God seem to use you to encourage others around you?
  7. It is very easy for us to revert to a mindset that says we are a part of a church so that we can receive a benefit.  While we do receive a lot by being a part of a congregation, we also need to remember that we have been placed inside a church to give our lives away to bless others.  How are you intentionally serving and being a blessing to others?
  8. Any particular application you took away from this passage this week?
