Discussion Questions For “GOING DEEPER”

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

Read Ephesians 4:32.
Do you agree with Jerry that there is a difference between saying “It’s OK” versus the words “I forgive you.”
If you can share with someone (or journal) a situation where a hurt you’ve received is very hard to forgive.

Read Luke 23:32-43.
1. What does the cross have to do with our ability to forgive?
2. What’s your gut response to the realization that Jesus had a choice to save Himself or us–and He chose you?

Read Matthew 18:32-35.

3. Jesus tells this story to show that God’s forgiveness doesn’t just flow to us, but through us. What does this mean? How should this impact the way we live? Based on Jesus’ last words here how seriously do you think He takes this forgiveness thing?

Read Romans 12:19-20.

4. Do you find comfort in this verse? Do you believe that God will see there is ultimate justice for the wrong done to you?

MOVING FORWARD

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32 NIV)

Discussion Questions For “GOING DEEPER”

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

1. Do you tend to be trusting or suspicious of people? Do you assume the best or worst about people?
2. How do you respond when what people promise is different from what people deliver? How do you respond to those gaps Pastor Jerry talked about between EXPECTATIONS and EXPERIENCE?
3. Share a time when you believed the best about an unexplainable gap. Share a time when you assumed the worst about an unexplainable gap.  If you are able to, share the “rest of the story”  Did your believing the worst bring you closer together in that relationship?  Did believing the best?
4. Read 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. How can you express this kind of love without feeling like an emotional doormat?
5. How should you determine when to trust and when to confront? How can you confront someone in a healthy manner?  How could you use the guidance of Matthew 18:15-20 that Jesus talked about?

MOVING FORWARD

Jesus says in Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Naturally, you would want people to choose to trust you rather than be suspicious of you. So make these five commitments in your most important relationships:

FIVE Commitments

1. When there is a gap between what I expected and what I experienced, I will believe the best.
2. When other people assume the worst about you, I will come to your defense.
3. If what I experience begins to erode my trust, I will come directly to you about it.
4. When I’m convinced I will not be able to deliver on a promise, I will inform you ahead of time.
5. When you confront me about the gaps I’ve created, I will tell you the truth.

Overcome Evil With Good

The mp3 audio file for Pastor Jerry McNamara’s August 17 message, “Overcome Evil With Good” is now available.

This sermon is part five of our series “Be Transformed–A Romans 12 Study” and was offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.

8/17 SUMMARY: We conclude our study of Romans 12, looking at 12:17-21.  Another step of our transformation into someone more like Jesus is to overcome all our excuses and even evil itself by doing all the good we can—even as we trust our Father-God to do what He has promised!

GOING DEEPER (Extra Questions & Scriptures)

Look at Romans 12:17-21

[Note: you might find a look at today’s live outline or the worship folder can be helpful to review the teaching points from “Overcome Evil With Good” and to answer the following questions: Romans 12:21 is God’s encouragement to us to “overcome evil with good.”  We face many circumstances that bring pain, anger or uncertainty, but we don’t face those alone!  God is with us.  As you begin this study, be sensitive that a study partner, a small group member, or maybe you yourself, have been a recipient of evil.  This is a time to be supportive and to lean on the promises of God!  Look in your Bible for a promise of God that can help you remember that God is with you and offers healing and restoration (hint: 1 John 5:4; Matthew 11:28-30; 1 Peter 5:7-10 are great starters).  How will you “overcome evil with good” this week?  

Intro Question

Read Romans 12:21.  Share a challenge or circumstance in your life that you have overcome?

ROMANS 12 STUDY

Read Romans 13:8-102 Corinthians 6:19-20

Questions to probe deeper: what “debt” do you owe to others according to Romans 13:8? 2 Corinthians 6:19-20 speaks strongly about why we owe this debt to others, how you you explain it in your own words?  Reflect back at Romans 13:10 and share how loving others would fulfill God’s laws.

Read Romans 12:17.  Remember those Peanuts cartoons where Lucy always pulls the football out from Charlie Brown?  If you could write the script called “Charlie Brown’s Revenge” how can you imagine him getting even with his nemesis?  Ever have any revenge fantasies of what you would say or do back to someone who has wounded you?  Share what you think is the “why” behind God’s guidance to us of NOT seeking to repay evil for evil.

Read Romans 12:18.  Who is someone you know who falls into the people-pleasing trap?  What do you think is the difference between being a people-pleaser and “doing what is right in the eyes of everyone”?  Can you think of something you want to do differently based on this verse?

Read Romans 12:19-20 .  Jerry shared in his message that this passage is God acknowledging that painful thing have wounded us, yet asking us “Will you trust Me enough to let me make sure justice is done?  Will you leave room for Me to act?”  Do you agree with this approach?  How is it hard to not seek revenge?  Could you envision yourself doing the actions of Romans 12:20 toward someone who has wounded you?

Read Romans 12:21.  Have you ever felt that evil was so powerful and the world’s needs so great you just wanted to give up?  What is a local need–neighbor, friend, family member when you can overcome evil by the good you do and bring into their life?  Now what good will you DO this week?
