Question: By God’s grace, Jesus healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, opened deaf ears, made the lame to walk, multiplied food to feed the hungry, brought deliverance to the demon possessed, and even raised the dead. What can you do as part of Christ to meet the needs of others?
Question: Every trouble is a sanctified experience in the hand of God. If handled correctly by His grace, it will strengthen us to rule in life in greater ways than we dreamed. Think back to a major trial—one that was long and intense—you experienced and came through. How did it make you more like Christ and empower you to minister to others better?

Question: God is not the source, designer, or instigator of the hardships you face—Satan and his demonic forces are. Why is it imperative for you to know this? What will happen if you think God is behind it?

Question: Imagine you just led someone to the Lord—someone you’ve been praying for, for a long time. Why is it important to let them know that as a follower of Christ they will face troubles? What else can you say to encourage them and give them a balanced perspective of the true hope they have in Christ?

Question: Pride is the opposite of humility, and not even those close to God are immune to its infectious reach. Lucifer was close to God, but when the iniquity of pride was found in his heart, God cast him out. What is God showing you about pride—its cause, what it produces, and how it can be averted?

Question: When it comes to fighting the enemy, there are two extreme mindsets that exist among believers: one that looks for a devil behind every problem and another that chooses to ignore him, believing he will eventually just go away. What is a danger associated with each of these mindsets? How might you protect yourself from them?
Question: What immature or ungodly qualities has God removed from your character as a result of your obedience through suffering? What mind-sets and behaviors, that were once strongholds, are no longer active in your life? How does recalling what He’s done strengthen you to press on?

Question: There is a big difference between wishing to receive something from God and being determined to receive. When we’re determined, we pray fervently. Carefully read the story in Luke 18:1-8. Notice that Jesus says we are to learn from the unjust judge, not from the widow. What does this speak to you about your approach to prayer?

Question: Many who profess to be Christians today are reshaping Scripture to accommodate the trends in society instead of allowing the truth of Scripture to shape them. In other words, they’re reading into God’s Word what they want it to say instead of drawing out of it what it actually says. Why is this dangerous? How can you guard against it?
