Not Mine, But Thine
October 10, 2021 Speaker: Jonathan Sgalambro Series: The Lord's Prayer: Participating in Thy Kingdom Come
Topic: The Kingdom of God, The Providence of God Scripture: Matthew 6:10–10, 1 Samuel 15:1–35, Matthew 26:30–46
Community Group Questions:
What is it about denying ourselves and our own desires that is so difficult for us, even when we know our way is inferior?
What stood out in Sunday’s sermon that was most challenging and/or encouraging? Why?
Engage the Text:
The will of God often refers to the manner we are to live as representatives of the Kingdom. Read through 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12. What does Paul identify as the will of God, and how does he instruct us to live it out (hint: there’s more than one answer here, so read the entire section)?
Engage Your Neighbor:
What are some ways you might live out Paul’s instruction “to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you”? How might this reveal the Kingdom to those around you?
Engage Your Family:
Continue practicing the Lord’s Prayer together as a family, and also discuss the importance of obedience and faithfulness, both in the context of your family, and to God.
