Questions: Why Would God Ask Me To Trust In An Antiquated Old Book Like The Bible?

We provide questions each week based on the theme of our service for our Micro Groups to use. If you're not in a Verve Micro Group, feel free to use them on your own.

This week we concluded our series Why Would God and talked about "Why Would God Ask Me To Trust In An Antiquated Old Book Like The Bible?

  1. How often do you read?  Hardly ever? Only when I have to? Often?
  2. How often do you read the Bible?
  3. What’s intimidating to you about reading the Bible?
  4. Have you tried to read the Bible following Verve's plan, and using the notes provided on the VerveCatalyst posts? If so, how has that helped you?
  5. How do you handle your questions, doubts, and confusion about the Bible?
  6. How do you think your life might be better if you developed the habit of reading the Bible consistently?
  7. We read, in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, that the Bible is "God-breathed" - so God inspired the writers to put down the words He wanted, the Bible contains God's words to us. And that it helps us with life and "equips" us for "every good work" we'll need to do in life. If that's all true, why do you think reading the Bible consistently should be a priority in your life?
  8. The Bible says in James 1:25, "But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it - not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it - they will be blessed in what they do." So this is saying that reading and applying the Bible is how we find freedom and God's blessings in life. Why do you think that would be true?
  9. Accountability Question:  How have I passionately pursued meaningful time with God this week?
  10. Prayer Question:  What could we be praying for you this week? (Is this there something good we could celebrate with you, or a challenge you need God's help with?)
