Small Group Questions Beauty of The Church January 20, 2019 By: Nate Weis
*You do NOT have to answer or discuss every question. Feel free to just pick a few. These are meant to guide you in truth. If you are having trouble answering a question, ask your small group leader to help you. They are committed to helping you develop as an authentic follower of Christ. The COMMUNITY: 1. Who do you want to win the Super Bowl this year?
b. Have you ever felt “burned out” by having too much responsibility? (See verse 18).
c. Consider verse 21. Why does character matter in leadership? (Also see 1 Timothy 3:1-7).
2. Read Acts 6:1-7. a. Why did the Apostles not want to serve tables? Was their ministry more important?
Into the WORD/APPLICATION: Here are some suggested sites in order to dive deeper into God's Word: blueletterbible.org, desiringgod.org/articles/all, biblos.com, ccel.org, logos.com, connect.ligonier.org, thegospelcoalition.org/ channel/bible-and-theology. Read Exodus 18:13-23 a. Do you think it is unhealthy for leaders to work alone? Why or why not?
b. What was the result of the Apostles delegating leadership to others? (see verse 7). What can we learn from this today? (Also consider Ephesians 4:11-16).
3. If you aren’t leading in any capacity, do you feel like God is calling you to step up and lead? If you are leading, are there any others around you that you can delegate your leadership to?
