Passage: Luke 10:17–24
Click here for the sermon discussion questions or see them listed below. We highly encourage you to listen, think, and talk about the sermon. These are questions you can reflect on by yourself, with your family, or with your small group.
- Why do you think the disciples rejoiced more about defeating the works of Satan, than even the ability to physically heal the sick? What did these disciples understand about where humanity’s true problems lie? Personally, how have you seen the works of Satan being defeated?
- For the Christian, there is an even greater joy in knowing that our names are written in heaven. How often do you stop in your busy day to reflect on the joy of your salvation? What impact on your daily life would such reflection have?
- From our passage this week, we learned that Jesus rejoices over our salvation and gives all the credit, glory and praise to the eternal triune God. Salvation does not come to us because we are so wise and understanding but because Jesus chooses to reveal Himself to us. The only difference between the greatest sinner and the believer, is the grace of God. How should this knowledge affect the way you interact with and share the gospel with a sinful unbelieving world? How would you respond to the question, why does God choose some and not others?
- How is every Christian today blessed and privileged beyond Abraham, Moses, David, and John the Baptist? How should this “privilege” fuel and direct your joy?
- What fills you with the most joy? Do you believe the joy God provides to you is all you need? If so, how does this show up in how you live? If not, what else do you think you need?
