It Is Required…

Ken Harrell

Senior Pastor

Discussion Questions

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 discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.

  1. Read 1 Corinthians 4:2. Define “steward”. Define “faithful”.
  2. Discuss various areas you’ve been given stewardship over? Job responsibilities, marriage, kids, finances, the Gospel. etc.)
  3. Read Lamentations 3:22–23. In your notes, review the three points under “God is faithful…” How have you seen God’s faithfulness in these areas within your life? How have you seen God’s faithfulness in the last several months?
  4. Read Luke 16:10–11. The test of what you’d do in the spiritual realm is seen by what you do in the physical. Discuss the implications and ramifications of this truth.
  5. In your notes, review “Faithfulness Fleshed Out”. Where do you need to ask God to grow you in the area of faithfulness to hear “well done good and faithful servant”? Ask the group for help. Let them come alongside you and pray for you.
  6. How is growing in faithfulness tied to growing in our relationship with Jesus? (Two of the most basic and foundational ways we grow in our relationship with Jesus is through time in God’s Word and prayer.)
  7. What have you learned from your time in the Bible this week? Share how it’s impacting your daily life?
  8. How is your prayer life? Are you spending quality time in prayer with the Lord?
