April 8, 2018 – Pleasing God by Doing His Will
Life Group Questions:
1. If you were not able to hear this week’s sermon, consider going to the church website and listening to it. As you listen and read the text what are some ideas that come to mind or some thoughts you might have had. What, if any, questions did the sermon or text cause for you or do you desire to have further clarification?
2. What do you think the statement “the God of Peace” (vs20) refers to? How is our God a God of peace? How has He been a God of peace to you?
3. When thinking about aspects of God’s will, what does it mean that he works “all things” according to His will (Ephesians 1:11, Revelation 4:11, Romans 11:36, 1 Corinthians 8:6)? What are some examples where God exercised His free will? What can we be thankful for because of His free will?
4. Give some examples of God’s secret will (c.f. Deuteronomy 29:29). Why do you think the Lord has not revealed those things to us? Why do you think we spend so much time on the unknown?
5. Many times in scripture we see the idea of doing the Lords will (c.f. Matthew 6:10, Matthew 7:21, Ephesians 5:17). Do you think this is something believers should generally desire? When believers are seeking “God’s will”, generally what are they searching for? What are some fears associated with seeking God’s will?
6. Thinking about the idea that the Lord has “equipped you with everything good” (vs21), what do you think this is in reference to? How has the Lord “equipped you” with everything good? In what ways do you need to use this in your life?
7. Read Hebrews 13, notice the list of ways God reveals His will in this chapter. Why do you think the author was inspired to include this list of God’s revealed will? Which of these listed do you think you struggle with most? What do you think would help you improve?
8. Take some time to Pray, ask that God would continue to show you His will.
