Apr. 23 - God as Light (2 Cor. 4:1-7)

First listen to the sermon (posts Sun. afternoon). Then use the ideas below to help you and your group apply what the Lord is teaching you. Icebreaker idea: What is one aspect of creation or one type of artistic expression you find especially beautiful? Why?

A way to pray: Pray for opportunities to share the gospel as we trust God to bring 2000 people into relationship with him through our ministry by 2022.

For discussion:

  • What have I most appreciated about God lately?
  • Why does Paul use the word "light" to describe the gospel?
  • How does the gospel lead us to renounce "disgraceful, underhanded ways"? Why do we still struggle with this even after we belong to Jesus?
  • Why is it loving to share the gospel with those whom God has placed in our lives? What does it look like to do this in a loving way?
