Text: Psalm 119:129-136

Sermon Title: Wake up the Wonder

Date: October 7, 2018

  1. Tell us about a time in your life when you were most consistently saying, “WOW” to the Lord.
  2. What part of following Christ are you currently feeling most familiar with (lack of wonder)? What has changed since the “time of WOW” you shared?
  3. Read 2 Corinthians 3:12-18. What is the key to transformation here? How do we encounter or access this “key”?
  4. For those of you who have participated in the Psalm 119 “Transformed Journal,” please tell us about how the Lord has been moving on you through this process. What was difficult about this endeavor? What was good? What do you want to take with you beyond this study to continue to wake up your wonder of God?
  5. How is your wonder at God these days? Is your relationship with God marked by a growth in awe (as a trajectory)? What particular temptations seem to diminish your wonder in God and/or His Word?
  6. In the sermon, Craig charged us with 4 applications from this text: 1) engage God’s Word personally, 2) Pray verse 18, 3) unfold God’s word in community, and 4) wake up the wonder of God’s Word in “scattered worship.” Which one of these most resonates with you right now and why?

Community Group Discussion Questions

Text: Psalm 119:65-80

Sermon Title: God is Good When Life is Bad

Date: September 30, 2018

  1. What person’s trust in Gods goodness and/or reliance on God’s word though suffering have you personally witnessed? What good or joy has this given you? Explain.
  2. Tell us about a hard time in your past and how has the Lord has used it to change you.
  3. Read Romans 5:2-5, 1 Peter 4:12-19 and James 1:2-4. What take always about God’s purpose(s) for suffering do you observe?
  4. Two weeks ago, Craig mentioned that one reason we don't delight in God’s word is that we don't connect it to the Word, Jesus. How does this text connect us to Jesus? In other words, how does Jesus fulfill these stanzas specifically? What difference does this connection to Jesus make to your engagement of these verses??
  5. What affliction (s) are you currently experiencing (financial, health, relational, spiritual, grief, disappointment, your past, etc.)?
  • What is this affliction revealing about you that would not have been revealed otherwise?
  • In what way(s) do you observe the Lord using this affliction to bring you to Himself and/or His Word? If you can’t see the Lord moving in your affliction, please share about this with us.
  1. In what ways might you continue to learn from a person or people who have walked through suffering? What specific next step will you take to become their student?
  2. Which one of these prayers in Psalm 119 (v. 66, v. 73, v. 76, v. 77, v. 78, v. 80) do you feel most moved to pray right now? Why?
