GOD IN US

Week 1 – God is Powerful

Samson

 November 19th

 

 

 

 

 

Main Thing …

It is clear in Scripture and as you look at the world around you, that God is Powerful.  As you look at the life of Samson, you see God’s power at work in his life.  It is cool to see how Samson reflected God’s power in his own life.  If God is powerful, then how should we live differently?  If God is powerful, then what can we do to see more of God’s power at work in our own lives?

 

Scratch the Surface…

  • High’s and lows
  • Ummm … arm wrestling match … obviously

 

Dig a Little Deeper…

  • Talk about some powerful things that God has done
  • What are some powerful things that Samson did?
  • Talk through these points that we learned from Samson’s life and apply them to your own life

o   When you go through a battle you will be drained, but God will restore you

o   God is powerful so find your strength in Him

o   God is powerful, does not mean that you are invincible

  • Think deep … If God is Powerful, then why doesn’t He just “fix” all the chaos in this world?

o   Why doesn’t He answer all our prayers?

o   Why doesn’t He help people who are starving, or in really rough situations

o   (you probably will not “fully” answer these questions, but it is good to wrestle with it)

Personal…

  • You could share about a time when you saw God’s power at work in your life
  • You could talk about a time when you prayed for something and it didn’t happen and how you dealt with that

Applications…

  • Pray with your group
  • Are there any ways that you can live different this week because God is Powerful?
