Community Group Questions:

Engage Yourselves:

  • What about this sermon was most encouraging and most challenging?
  • How might knowing that we are little temples, filled with the presence of God, bring you hope in the midst of despair?

Engage the Text:

  • Read aloud in your community groups 1 Kings 6-7 and identify all of the garden imagery found within the Temple and its furnishings. Does this sort of thing encourage you in your Bible reading? Explain why or why not.
  • Revelation 21:22-26 talk about the Lord God being the Temple. What about this passage is most hopeful, especially during our current moment in history?

Engage your Neighbor:

  • How might knowing that God’s dwelling place is His place of action or His control room affect the way you understand the mission of the church?
  • Take a minute to pray for those in your sphere of influence who do not know Jesus.
