On Sunday, August 3, 2014, I preached a message based out of Ephesians 6:1-9 at Wildwood Community Church.  Below you will see a list of questions for group discussion tied to this sermon.

Small Group Discussion Questions (Eph. 6:1-9)

  1. Read Ephesians 6:1-9
  2. What are some of the different groups of people that make up the church you attend?  Are there some groups that possibly feel marginalized in your congregation? 
  3. The Ephesian church apparently was made up of a very diverse group of people.  Survey back through the book to see some of the different groups mentioned.  Some of these groups were culturally powerful, while others were culturally marginalized.  Based on your understanding of the New Testament, is there any distinction inside the church?
  4. Children are called to submit to their parents by obeying them.  By directly addressing these children, Paul shows that the Ephesian children were Christian, morally responsible, and valued by God.  What are ways a parent can help children connect their obedience at home to their obedience to God?
  5. What are some ways in which a parent can build up their children without exasperating them?
  6. What does Ephesians 6:5-8 tell us about how a Christian employee should relate in the workplace?
  7. What does Ephesians 6:9 tell us about how a Christian employer should relate to his/her employees?
  8. In what way does the New Testament pattern of addressing slavery apply to us today as we try to effect the “big problems” of our world?  In what way does it NOT apply today?
  9. Any particular application you took away from this passage this week?
