SMALL GROUP QUESTIONS

What do you think?

  1. What struck a chord with you from Sunday’s service?

The story of your life.

  1. On Sunday, we looked at three lessons from the life and death of Moses. If you were preparing a Bible study on Moses’ life, what lesson(s) might you relay to folks from his life?
  2. One thing we looked at is the fact that Moses’ passion for God was visible in his life up until the very end, even at 120 years old. What helps keep your passion for God high?

Digging Deeper in God’s Word.

  1. Moses had been grooming Joshua to become his successor for many years before he died. This was reaffirmed when the two of them were finally on the top of the mountain overlooking the Promised Land one last time. Joshua returned from that trip as the leader of the Israelites. Read Joshua 1:1-9 and have a few members of the group recap what happened using their own words.
    1. What does this story tell us about God? People?
    2. How might you have felt if you were Joshua following such a legendary leader? Would you tend more to “ease into the role” or just start “ripping off the Band-Aids?”
  2. Now read Joshua 1:10-17 and have a few members of the group recap what happened using their own words.
    1. What does this story tell us about God? People?
    2. The text seems to progress straight from Joshua’s assumption of leadership to preparation for battle. Does this quick transition surprise you? In your opinion, what other events made the people receptive to these swift leadership moves?
    3. How do you balance pushing forward with ensuring others are on board with you? Is this a struggle in your workplace/family/friendships?
  3. Psalm 46 gives us insight into what to do when we don’t know what to do. Read it out loud together and answer the following questions.
    1. Have everyone share one insight on how to proceed in moments of confusion from this text.
    2. In light of this, is there anything you need to do differently?

Personal reflection and application.

  1. Have everyone share one thing someone else said during the discussion that stood out to them.
  2. Pray for one another.
