Sermon Response July 22, 2018

The Text:Ezra 8

Discuss:

  1. Why do you think there were no Levites among the 1500 men?

  2. Why do you think Ezra trusted God more than soldiers and horsemen?

  3. How do you think they transported so much gold and silver?

  4. Why do you think Ezra demanded such meticulous counts of the offerings given for the temple?

Respond:

  1. Have you ever given someone biblical council/ advice? Did it help them?

  2. Do you ever feel like it is easier to give biblical council than it is to follow it? Why is this?

3. Have you ever fasted so as to humble yourself before God? Tell the story.

4. What do you need to do this week to better trust God and humble yourself before him?

Prayer

God, may we trust you and live out what we believe to be true about you. Help us humble ourselves before you. You are our great God!!
