Discussion Questions

1.What stood out to you in the service today?

2.Read and discuss this quote from Steven C. Hawthorne: “The Bible is basically a story about God. When we turn to the Bible as a self-help book, we end up bored or frustrated with what seems to be a rambling collection of stories. What if the Bible is more about God than it is about us? How thrilling to discover that every element of Scripture—the reports of events, the verses of distilled wisdom, the lyrical prophecies—converge in one central saga of one worthy Person.”

3.What is the difference between being God-centered or Man-centered or Self-centered? According to the message today how should we be centered? Why?

4.How does the Lord want you to apply what you learned today? Who does the Lord want you to minister to today? This week?
