This study is based on the passage above and this sermon:
I trust you Lord, but…
In which ways does Habakkuk describe God? What do Habakkuk’s descriptions of God tell us about Habakkuk’s theology? Look at the questions Habakkuk asks and as a group try to answer them. Discuss verse 2:1 what is Habakkuk saying here? Talk through the application of this passage for us here today in 21st century England.
This study is based on the passage above and the sermon:
Wow That Was Unexpected!
Is it a regular or rare thing for God to answer prayer in the way that Habakkuk received his answer? In the sermon we discussed the fact that God’s ways are very different to ours, as a group find as many scripture passages as you can which highlight this and discuss them as you go. What are we to do when it seems that God is distant or disinterested? And what might be the reasons for that? As a group discuss the various applications this passage has to our lives?
Based on the passage and this sermon
When we cry out, God where are you!
Talk through what we know about Habakkuk and the time in which he lived. Why is Habakkuk is upset, is that what God wants? How do you feel about our own society? What are you doing about it? and what should we be doing? (both in respect of God and the people in our society) What ‘big questions’ do group members have? As a group, have a try at answering those questions from a scriptural perspective.
This study is based on 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 and the sermon:
An Annual Check Up…
What do we know about the Corinthian Church? [This question should take the majority of the discussion time, go as deep and as wide as you can] Taking time to really consider each of the ‘commands’ we are given, then discuss them as a group and talk through what effect, taking each of them seriously would have on us as individuals and as a church? Spend some time praying for us as individuals and a church, that we will be obedient to these commands.
