Colossians: Jesus Our Warrior King

Faith Talks:

Please set aside at least 10 minutes this week to have an honest talk about what God spoke to you in the sermon today.

  • In your pursuit of freedom why is it significant that Jesus disarmed the rulers and authorities?

  • How has the triumph of our warrior King changed you life?

  • This lent season are there areas of your life where you feel held down or captive, areas where you are not living in the freedom Jesus has won for you? What are some empty philosophies that may be holding you captive?

Judges: Samson Begins

Judges: Samson Begins

FAITH TALKS:

  1. In Judges 14, we find the people of Israel very comfortable among the Philistines. In what ways does the story indicate that Samson and Israel have assimilated into Philistine culture, that they are no longer distinct as God’s people?

  2. Why is assimilation into culture so attractive to God’s people? In what ways have you felt that pressure in your own life?

  3. In the story of Samson, what does God do for his people who have assimilated into the culture of the Philistines? In what ways has God worked in your life to rescue you from being assimilated into a culture that is against God?

  4. There are many things Samson did that were empowered by the Holy Spirit, yet his life was filled with compromise. What is the warning you receive from Samson’s life?
