Discuss the Word

  1. How did you see God at work this week?
  2. Of all the things Jesus has talked about in this sermon (chapter 5-7) which do you struggle the most with? Explain.
  3. Think of a time God granted you what you “needed” over what you wanted. Tell us what you wanted and what God actually gave you? 
  4. Why is it hard for us to run to God for help? 
  5. What is one thing you are “asking, seeking and knocking” for? (Spend time praying for what each person is asking, seeking and knocking for) 

During the Week 

In order for the Word of God to really take hold in our life we need to read it and listen to it consistently over time. It’s an eternal difference to move God’s Word the 18 inches from your head to your heart. To get there, we need to slow down and really meditate on it and put it into practice. 

Below you will find a different question for each day of the week. Slowly reread the passage each day and then answer the corresponding question and complete the action step. 

Read Matthew 7:7-11 daily before answering the questions:

Monday Make a list of everything the passage tells you about God or Christ.

Tuesday – Make a list of everything the passage tells you about yourself (anything it puts a finger on in you).

Wednesday – Make a list of each example to follow or avoid, commands to obey or do, and promises to claim.

Thursday – If I really believed this, how would I be different?

Friday – Share what you have learned this week with a mentor, spouse, home church host, or a pastor.

Memory verse – Memorize and pray this prayer this week: Matthew 7:7  “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

Ways to Give

Giving of our finances is a response of worship to God who created us, saved us, and is continually at work in the lives of each of His children to reflect more and more of the character of Jesus Christ. Giving is an opportunity to respond to the gospel of Christ in a way that we can find our hearts freed to reflect the generous heart of God.  

“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”

2 Corinthians 9:7-8
