SERMON SERIES: JESUS KING
MESSAGE 6: GOD IS STILL WORKING (FEEDING OF THE 5,000)
LOMBARD BIBLE CHURCH
SEPTEMBER 12, 2021
- Today’s takeaway: God is still
- Even if I can’t Jesus with me, God is still working
- God wasn’t finished working with the disciples just because their tour ended. God is still working.
- God doesn’t just work in adults, but even in . God is still working
- What’s the biggest crowd you’ve ever been a part of? Why were you all gathered together?
- In our Scripture today, Jesus feeds a huge crowd of over 5,000 people. Read Mark 6:30-52. What did you hear from the Scripture or the message this past Sunday? What’s your takeaway?
- In the middle of a storm, Jesus walks on water next to His disciples and as soon as He gets in their boat the storm immediately goes calm. The disciples were amazed. We could probably think of a lot of reasons why, but Mark gives us insight into why they were actually amazed. Read Mark 6:47-52. Why were the disciples amazed according to Mark? What do you think he means by that?
- Even though Jesus’ disciples saw displays of Jesus’ power frequently, even in and through them (Mark 6:13), Jesus’ disciples often did not look for God’s power to help them in other situations in which God could have helped (Mark 8:14-19). Do you feel like you look to God to help you frequently? Why do you do that OR not do that?
- Do you have a story from your life or someone you know that God helped them when they were in need? Share it!
- Pray for one another
