Take Away / Application
Our greatest motivation in being faithful to God originates and is sustained from God’s incredible faithfulness to us.
Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your group or branch off with additional questions as the discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.
- How would you define faithfulness?
- Pastor Harrell mentioned “Where” we should be faithful to our families, finances, friends, church, and to the word of God. Do you struggle in one or more of these areas more than the others?
- Read Luke 16:10—11. According to God’s Word, how is worldly wealth tied to spiritual wealth? What struggles do we face in this area?
- Read Romans 12:5 and Hebrews 10:25. What is your approach to making Sunday a priority for you and/or your family? How does Pastor Harrell’s comment of, “Attending church is not just about what you can get, but what you can give?”
- Look in your notes at the “What If?” section under “Why we should be faithful?” Do you or have you struggled with any of those examples? How did or how can the truth of Scripture help you and bring about increased faithfulness in God and the area you’ve struggled?
- Our greatest motivation to be faithful is the incredible faithfulness of God to us. With that in mind, think about if someone had lost it all (think Job) and asked you “why should I be faithful to a God who has taken everything from me?” How would you respond to them?
- When it comes to “How to be faithful”, is there any area you need to improve upon? Share.
- Think back to a time where your faith was put to the test. Share with the group your experiences, joys, and/or struggles during this time.
