QUESTIONS FOR REFLECTION
Expand
1) As you think of our series title “This is Us,” what do you most appreciate about who God has made you through Christ – about your “identity in Christ”?
2) What do you appreciate the most about how God is at work in our Forcey family? Where do you see evidence of His handiwork and favor?
3) What stood out to you most from the message on Ephesians 1:1-3?
4) What do you think of when you hear the word “Blessing”? How has your understanding of the idea of “blessing” changed after hearing the message on Ephesians 1:3?
5) Where or when have you seen yourself or others connect the idea of “blessing” with physical circumstances? What is right, wrong, or dangerous about doing this?
6) According to Ephesians 1:3, what kind of blessing has God given us in Christ? What are some of the spiritual blessings Paul is referring to? (Consider verses 3-14!)
7) Read Galatians 3:7-14. What do we learn about “the blessing” from this passage?
8) Do you typically see yourself under a “bar” or a “banner”? What difference might it make to see yourself more under a banner?
9) What is a specific way you can bless the Lord in celebration of what He has done for you? Consider setting aside a special time or activity this Thanksgiving to bless the Lord!
