WELCOME TO THE “WEEKEND-FOLLOW-UP”
The questions below are for the weekend of September 26th, 2021.
- What immediately comes to mind when you hear the word “worship”? How would you define what “worship” is in your own words?
- What are some of the common disputes or debates that Christians get into regarding worship in the church?
- Read Mark 14:3-9. What makes Mary’s worship of Jesus “extravagant”? How do Jesus’ disciples respond to Mary’s act of praise in verse 4? How does the disciple’s response compare to Jesus’ reaction to Mary’s worship in verse 6?
- Read Psalm 47:1 and Isaiah 12:6. What do these verses reveal to us about how we are to praise God? How can we express this kind of worship on Sundays at KHPC?
- Read 2 Samuel 24:22-24. Why does David’s response to Araunah teach us about the value of worshiping Jesus? What kind of “cost” does Jesus desire from us when it comes to our praise of God?
- Read the following quote by Teddy Roosevelt: “It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbles or how the doer of deeds might have done better. The credit belongs to the man (or the woman) who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
- Why is it so “daring” to worship Jesus publicly (or out in the open) in our world today?
More from the Weekend
Read Matthew 25:31-46. At KHPC we’re about the power of God who transforms lives. Everyday we’re getting outside ourselves trying to make a difference in the world. One way we do this is partnering with organizations who literally are changing the world everyday. This week in your LifeGroup, discuss how your group can partner with one of KHPC’s ministries or local mission organizations to serve the people of Keystone and beyond.
