At Central we want to provide the questions that will be looked at in group before you head to your group. Each week this is where you will find the questions and some prayer requests.
If you are not yet in a group and are interested in joining a group, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Shepherd, The Sheep, and The Roaring Lion (Part 2)
Text: 1 Peter 5:1-5 (with a focus on 5)
Question 1) Would you describe yourself as more of a leader or a follower?
Question 2) “Submission is a fundamental attitude of spiritual maturity.” (MacArthur) How does submission (the idea of willingly be under authority) demonstrate spiritual maturity?
Question 3) Why are we to clothe ourselves in humility? Why do you suppose the metaphor of clothing ourselves is used? Where else do we see similar verbiage used in the bible?
Question 4) “To put it bluntly, the only Christians who would not want this kind of leadership over them (Pastors who are for the flock, feed them with God’s word, and protect them) are proud ones, who think they don’t need anyone’s help- and sheep that go it alone tend not to last long, let alone thrive. (-Juan Sanchez)
Question 5) What have you been reading about in God’s Word lately? What have you been learning?
