Questions

  • What ideas do you have for how a man can balance “striving” toward godliness with resting and trusting in God to provide all that we need? What is your part in “striving” and what is God’s part? Said another way, if our relationship with God is not works based, in what way do we “strive”?
  • Share a time when spending time in God’s Word diagnosed a need in our life or an issue that needed to change. How have you found God’s Word to be living, active, penetrating and discerning?
  • What encouragement do you find in the fact that Jesus is your High Priest? What are the benefits to you of that reality?
  • What encouragement do you find in the fact that Jesus can sympathize with your weakness and has been tempted like you in every respect? How is sympathizing with weakness different from tolerating or condoning weakness?
  • What is the significance of this and how does it shape and form your view of God?
  • What are some ways that a man can demonstrate that he is drawing near to the throne of grace with confidence? What does that look like?
