Greetings! Below you will find questions which reference the sermon preached on Sunday, June 2nd, 2013 at The Park. Each week new questions are posted to track along with the sermons.
The book of Exodus is a great story of redemption, faith, and the sovereignty of God.
I encourage you to begin your group with a time of greeting and introductions. You may choose to reorder the questions below or to write your own. Work hard to facilitate discussion and avoid allowing yourself or another member to speak the entire hour. Ultimately we trust you with leading your group.
- What are some observations you had from this chapter?
- Were there any new insights you learned about the passage from the sermon?
- What theology was present in this chapter?
- What did you learn about God from reading this chapter?
- How do you understand the interaction between Moses and Jethro in 18:12? Was Moses evangelizing Jethro? What was the focus of their conversation? What was the significance of Jethro’s reaction?
- Moses was one of the greatest leaders of all time, as God had used him in incredible ways throughout Exodus. What characteristics of leadership does he display in this chapter? How does a learners posture and humility fit into leadership?
- For Moses God used Jethro to be a voice of wisdom (a prophetic voice) to speak truth into his life. At the same time Moses had a prophetic voice to speak to the people and judge between them. What role does this prophetic voice play in our church? In our families? In our community?
- We need people in our lives to help us see blind-spots. Do you have a “Jethro” in your life? Do you see a need for one?
- Are you prepared to hear from a “Jethro” today?
