Food for Thought

For the week of August 23, 2020

(Questions and Scriptures for further study & discussion)

NOTE TO LEADERS: We highly recommend that each week men and women break up into two groups for a time of reflection, prayer requests, and prayer.


Looking back at your notes from this week’s teaching, was there anything you heard for the first time or something that caught your attention, challenged or confused you?


1. We heard this weekend that the most important act of worship we can do is to be a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1).  Can you think of any ways that consistently being a living sacrifice could impact your life?


1. Read Psalm 118:22-29. Paying close attention to verse 24; on a scale of 1 to 10, how much are you rejoicing today?  What’s keeping you from rejoicing more?

2. Pastor JJ reminded us that “True worship is seeing afresh the tremendous worth of God and, in response, giving Him the very best of everything we have.” What are some of your “best” things? 

3. Some of the greatest expressions of worship in the Bible were written after great loss or failure.  In the first chapter of the book of Job, we read about all the tragedy that happened to Job and his family. Despite all the terrible experiences, how do you think Job was able to have the attitude he expressed in Job 1:20-22

4. Can you recall a time when you did not feel like worshiping or praising God and you went ahead and did it anyway?  What was that experience like?

5. Which point from this weekend’s message or Community Group study is most important for you to remember?

*118 Second Thank You Competition – One of the keys to remembering the true owner of all you have is remembering what He has done for you. Set your timer for 118 seconds, and as fast as possible, write down everything you can think of that you are thankful God has done for you and given you.
