Packed ongoing.001

 

On Sunday, August 10, 2014, I preached a message based out of Ephesians 6:10-20 at Wildwood Community Church.  Below you will see a list of questions for group discussion tied to this sermon.

Small Group Discussion Questions (Eph. 6:10-20)

  1. Read Ephesians 6:10-20
  2. Brainstorm a list of what you would identify as the most common problems facing churches today.  Who do you think is behind these problems?  People, or someone/something else?
  3. In the world today thousands of Christians are being persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ.  Many times this persecution is carried out by radical elements of other faiths, government institutions, or other people in authority.  How does identifying that the devil and his demons are behind these attacks impact your understanding of this persecution?
  4. One of the blessings that God has packed inside every believer is a “suit of armor” to provide protection for Christians as they live out their lives on the earth.  As you read through Ephesians 6:10-20, what stood out to you most about the WAY God protects those who are “in Christ”?
  5. Paul mentions that the “shield of faith” protects the Christian from the devil’s “fiery darts.”  How does faith help protect someone from the devil’s attacks?  How does living out our faith amongst other Christians help protect us from the devil’s attacks?
  6. How frequently do you pray for the expansion of Jesus’s kingdom in this world?  It is very easy in the church to spend time planning events, doing activities, and staying busy.  However, understanding the nature of our spiritual battle, we should never cease to pray.  What are some ways in which you can begin praying more for Jesus ministry in your community?
  7. We often pray for physical needs, but sometimes we forget to pray for spiritual things.  Think of a friend who you can begin praying for THEIR ministry to others on a regular basis.  Who is a friend who you could ask to begin praying for YOUR ministry on a regular basis?
  8. Any particular application you took away from this passage this week?
