Sermon Discussion Questions: June 5, 2016

This text is essentially Part II of an argument Paul started in vs. 5. How do verses 12-17 complement what Paul wrote in verses 5-11?
How does Paul remind his readers about their identity? Why is this important?
How are the characteristics of verses 12-15 the opposite of a self-focused, proud life?
What is Paul’s logic with why Christians have to be forgiving? How does this logic also apply to the other attributes he mentions?
Why is thankfulness vitally important for Christians? What does being thankful do to us?
How are God’s people to go about “putting on” these attributes? Why?

1 Samuel 23:1-29
How does Psalm 54 help us understand the point of 1 Samuel 23?
How are the presence of a priest and access to God’s Word indications that God is with David?
How does the Lord use Jonathan in David’s life? How is this an indication of the Lord’s kindness to David? How is Jonathan an example to follow for God's people today?
What kind of providential deliverance do we see in this passage? How is this another way that the Lord is proving to David that he is upholding his life? How do Christians have the same sort of assurance?
