THE CHURCH CALLED UNDER
Hebrews 13:17 NASB
17 Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you.
- The Gift
- The Goal
- What stood out to you about authority and submission from the message? How does a Biblical view of authority and submission contrast with the world’s view? What makes submission such a difficult and sensitive topic?
- Where in your story have you been impacted (negatively or positively) by authority and submission? How has authority been used against you? In what ways have you used authority to hurt or harm others? Where in your life is submission most difficult for you? What does that show you?
- What does Jesus’ life teach us about authority and submission? How does Jesus’ example cause you to reflect on how you are called to both authority and submission? What do you need to repent of, in regard to authority and submission? Who do you need to make things right with? What are the best ways you can grow in authority and submission this week?
