Discussion questions
Choose questions to get your group thinking and create openness:

  1. Begin your discussion with highlights from this Sunday’s sermon? What something that stood out to you? Share what you learned and how will it impact your life?
     
  2. What questions did this Sunday’s message raise? Share them in the group and offer your answers to each other’s questions.
     
  3. Read Psalm 19:1-6. What does the universe communicate to us about God?
     
  4. How can you remind yourself how big God is? What difference would it make in your life if you carried around the proper perspective of God's bigness?
     
  5. Read Psalm 8:3-4. What does the universe communicate to us about ourselves?
     
  6. Why do we tend to think of ourselves as bigger than we really are? When have you been reminded of your smallness?
     
  7. Read Hebrews 1:1-3. How could it be that Jesus is a better reflection of God's glory than all the stars in the universe? God's grace is big enough to cover all sins. How does the bigness of God’s grace compare with the bigness of His creation? Are both equally amazing?

 


 


Prayer

 

  1. Pray for our pastors and their families.
  2. Pray for pollical leaders and medical experts. Pray for wisdom on how to navigate through this pandemic.
  3. Pray for families. Pray for peace, grace, understanding, patience and productivity.
