Digging deeper.

  1. On Sunday, Pastor Kyle mentioned the fact that having Christ in our corner means focusing more on who is with us than whatever or whoever is coming against us. There is a great story to this effect in 2 Kings 6:8-23. Read it together as a group, recap the main points and answer the following questions.
    1. What does this story tell us about God? People? Spiritual warfare? Responding to our enemies?
    2. In light of this, is there anything you need to do differently?
  2. We see Jesus respond to spiritual opposition in many different ways in the Gospels. One great example is in Matthew 4:1-11 when He is personally tempted by Satan. Read it together, recap the main points and answer the following questions.
    1. What does this story tell us about God? People? Spiritual warfare? Responding to our enemies?
    2. In light of this, is there anything you need to do differently?
  3. Another place we see Jesus respond uniquely to spiritual opposition is in Mark 9:14-29. Read it together, recap the main points and answer the following questions.
