Why is it appropriate to think of ourselves as spiritual beggars?
What did Pastor Jon mean when he stated that “no one graduates from the Gospel”?
Why is it significant that the blind man calls Jesus “Son of David”?
What did Jesus mean by telling the beggar “your faith has made you well”? What did Jesus mean by “faith”?
How should we think about suffering and things like blindness in the Christian life?

1 Samuel 15:1-35
What truths should we understand about the kind of Holy War that God declared upon the Amalekites? How is this concept often misunderstood in our day?
How does the judgment and justice of God point us to the Gospel and the cross of Christ?
How did Saul rebel against the Lord? What sort of warnings should we see here for ourselves?
What is being communicated about God when the text tells us that he “regretted” or “repented” (vv. 11, 35) of making Saul king? How does this fit with God’s sovereign character? Why is this not a contradiction to vs. 29? How should these truths affect us?
