The Word Speaks


The Word Speaks

2019-2020

Do you want to be challenged to go back to the basics of the Christian faith, and learn how to submit, surrender, and be obedient to God? Would you be willing to engage our culture rather than be compromised by our culture and context?

● The Word Speaks studies the Word of God in the cultural context in which the Word was spoken.

● The message of the scriptures is eternal and unchanging.

● The circumstances and conditions of the people of the Bible are unique to their times.

● So, we more clearly understand God’s truth when we know the cultural context within which He spoke and acted.

● This will deepen our appreciation of God’s Word

● When our appreciation is deepened, our actions are strengthened.

We meet on Wednesday mornings beginning on Sept. 18th, from 9:00 am – 11:00 am

In the Family Life Center

Mid Week Message 9-10-19


Message Title: A Reasonable Faith

Series: Reasons for God

 

Key verses:

Isaiah 1:18; Isaiah 53

 

Sermon Notes:

Worldview offers answers to four primary life questions:

  1. Origins: Where did I come from?
  2. Meaning: Why am I here?
  3. Morality: How do I understand right and wrong?
  4. Destiny: What happens to me when I die?

 

  1. Is it reasonable to believe that everything comes from nothing?
  2. Is it reasonable to believe that intelligence is produced from non-intelligence?
  3. Is it reasonable to believe that a cosmic explosion produces universal order and fine tuning?

 

Follow-up Questions from Sunday’s Message:

Getting to Know You:

What was the best memory or highlight from your summer?

 

Quick Review:
Looking back at your notes from this week’s teaching, what was the most memorable part of the message for you on Sunday?

 

Digging Deeper:

  1. Why do you think college campuses are so hostile to Christians/a Christian world view? Did you ever experience direct or indirect challenges to your faith in college?  Please share.
  2. When you think about your world view, how has it changed over the years and what/who has had the most influence in that change?
  3. Read Isaiah 1:18. How would you define reason?
  4. What do you believe is the most reasonable part of your faith?
  5. Read Isaiah 53. Pastor Frank shared on Sunday that this chapter is what convinced him that the Christian faith/world view was true? Do you believe that this chapter is evidence for the existence of God?  Why or Why not?
  6. Read John 5:39-40. Jesus says that the Scriptures testify about Him and His coming.  Do you think Jesus was referring to passages like Isaiah 53?  What other Scriptures can you think of that testify about Him?
  7. Read 1 Peter 3:15. What does this passage say to us about sharing our worldview with others?  What do you think is so hopeful about our Christian worldview that others don’t have?  How does your faith give you hope for today and into eternity?

 

Taking it Home:

What is one thing you can apply to your life from this message and how can this group remember you in prayer this week?

Prayer request:

Please pray that this message series will impact people’s lives especially our brothers and sisters attending or soon to be attending college.
