Strangers in a New World Pt. 2 “Smashing Idols”

July 19, 2020

It’s a whole new strange world! Where do we go from here?

2 Kings 22:10-13

2 Kings 23:1-3

2 Kings 23:24-25

John 2:13-25

whatever earthly things you to.

 LIFE GROUP DISCUSSION

Start talking.

  • What are some things you run to or look to when you’re feeling mad, sad, or glad?

Start thinking.

  • The ancient world was filled with idols. Most cities and homes had handmade idols put on display. Do you think idols exist today? If yes, what do they look like now? How are they similar or different from idols in the ancient world? 
  • What do you think about his statement: We all run to something or someone in order to find our satisfaction, purpose, help, and meaning? 
  • What might be some of these somethings or someones?
  • Why do you think God started off the 10 commandments with this one: Exodus 20:1-3 (NIV)
  • 1 And God spoke all these words: 2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 3 “You shall have no other gods before me. 

Start sharing. 

  • Share of an idol that you might have in your life… i.e. something or someone you run to or look to find peace and fulfillment that isn’t God.
  • Share what you think it looks like today to “smash our idols.”

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

  • Ask the group to stop and take time to share prayer requests and pray for one another. 

Start doing. 

  • Take inventory of your idols. What things are more important to you than the things of God? What things do you run to instead of running to God? What will be required of you in order to smash that idol? Repent and replace that idol with God.
