I’m So Confused

Week 3 – Clay

January 28th

 

  

 

 

 

Main Thing …

One of the most powerful analogies in the Bible that relates to our growth and transformation is the analogy of the potter and the clay. The bible says that God is the potter and that we are the clay. Immersing ourselves in regular and daily scripture reading is one of the fundamental ways that we can allow God to begin to mold and shape us into who he wants us to be. Without the regular bible reading we become hard and stubborn, pushing back against God’s hand.

 

Scratch the Surface…

  • High’s and lows
  • Did you ever try eating modeling clay when you were a kid?

 

Dig a Little Deeper…

  • In what way can we, as humans, be compared to clay?
  • Why is soft clay easier to work with than hard clay?
  • How does the water help make the hard clay soft?
  • How can you apply all this to your life?
  • How important is daily scripture in your life?
  • Do you find it difficult to set aside time for the Bible?
    • What is the hardest part about setting aside time?

 

Personal…

  • You could talk about your own journey with reading your Bible
  • You could share your struggles with having a hard heart

 

Applications…

  • Pray with your group
  • Is there anyone who wants God to mold and shape their lives more?

 

Key Scriptures and thoughts…

 

Isaiah 64:8

But now, O Lord, You are our Father, We are the Clay and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your Hand.

 

Jeremiah 18

So I went to the potter’s house, and sure enough, the potter was there, working away at his wheel. Whenever the pot the potter was working on turned out badly, as sometimes happens when you are working with clay, the potter would simply start over and use the same clay to make another pot.
