For all of our sermon questions, we like to ask three main questions.
- What is God saying to you?
- What does the Bible say?
- What will you do?
We will ask some of the same questions each week as well as asking several different questions each week. We ask questions in this way because we believe God is doing something in the heart of the person that is asking the question. When we slow down long enough to ask the question “What is God saying to me?” we give ourselves the time and energy to pay attention to what He might be saying. The Bible questions are there to help us ensure we are hearing correctly from God. God’s word will always be consistent with His voice in our heart and mind. The final questions on “What will you do?” are designed to prompt you to search your heart on what God is saying and respond to it.
If you have questions, please email email@example.com.

What does the Bible say?
- What are some key words in vs 1-8, 9-13, 14-20, 21-24? In each of these sections there are different ideas, what ideas do you see emerge?
- Take a look at vs 14-24 and compare them to vs 1-13. What do you see here?

What will you do?
- How can you put yourself in a place where God’s love shines on you?
- How do you stay away from people who cling to idols? Is this possible?
- Ask God to deliver you from the areas of your life where you are in trouble.
