- Do they serve a purpose?
- Should we expect them? Run from them?
- Do you have confidence in the power of the Holy Spirit to sustain your life? Or do you draw power from yourself?
Read: Isaiah 53:1-12, Revelation 19:11-16
Zac talked a lot about respect and power as defining characteristics for how we (men specifically) govern our lives. People long for recognition, for affirmation. They want to be in control. Respect and power drive relationships, and often times they can tear relationships apart. Even if we don’t articulate power and respect in our code of honor, we are often driven by a desire for them.
- How do you define power and respect?
- How does Jesus define them?
- If these definitions conflict, why? Who’s right?
- Who has the power and deserves respect?
- What lessons do you learn about power and respect from these passages?
- How has Jesus called us to live (in relation to power and respect)?
- How can that impact our lives?
- How can you do that better this week?
- Commit to living with a boldness to stand for God like David did.
- Pray that God defines your life, not you.
