Sermon: True Strength
(Phone apps are good for comparing multiple translations. Study Bibles help with interpretation.)

1. Icebreaker question: Name one of your strengths and one of your weaknesses.
2. Samson displayed incredible feats of physical strength by the power of the Holy Spirit. But he was incredibly weak in other ways. What do you remember about each of the main points of the sermon? What stood out to you or impacted you?
3. Which outline points do you think you need to grow in the most?
4. Read Isaiah 40:27-31
a) What had the people of Israel been complaining about?
b) What tends to cause people to feel this way?
c) What was God’s answer to them?
d) Did God promise to make their problems go away?
e) What was his actual promise to them?
5. Read 1 Samuel 23:15-18
a) What steps did Jonathan take to encourage David?
b) What do you think most helped David to “find his strength in God?”
c) Do you ever struggle to know how to encourage a struggling person? (Sentiments like, “You’re in our thoughts and prayers” are nice but can sometimes feel lacking)
d) What can you personally apply from Jonathan’s approach?
e) Do you know of someone that you could reach out to this week to help them “find their strength in God”?
6. Spend some time in prayer together. Pray for each other’s kids and grandkids. Pray for good family relationships in our church and community.
