“Household Codes”
Small Group Questions: Text: Col. 3:18-4:1
  1. Which words were emphasized, repeated, or connected in this passage? What are 2-3 themes or key ideas that emerge?
  2. What are some of the roles (single,husband,wife,parent,child,roommate, friend, employee, boss, etc.) you have in life right now? What does it look like for you to live out your specific roles under the lordship of Jesus (3:17)?
  3. How many times does Paul mention “the Lord” in this passage? Why do you think he would emphasize Christ’s lordship so much in a section about roles and relationships?
  4. Is there a specific role or relationship that you’re struggling to follow Christ in? What is the struggle and how can the group pray about this struggle for you?
  5. Read Col. 3:13; 4:1; Eph. 5:25-28; Matt. 18:23-35. How does our relationship with Christ and acknowledging how He has treated us help us to have the right heart in our roles and relationships?
  6. Read all of Colossians again this coming week and write down what you’ve learned, things that have stood out to you, or things you want to take away from our study of Colossians.

    Finding God in a Dry Land
    Small Group Questions – Psalms 42 and 43Read Psalms 42 & 43
    1. What condition is the psalmist experiencing in Psalm 42:1-2? If the writer himself is likened to a deer, what do the dried up “streams” represent?
    2. Since the cause was not sin, what elements appear to have triggered the psalmist’s condition? Look through the entire psalm (that is, both Psalms 42 and 43).
    3. How might each “trigger” factor noted in Q.2 apply to you today?
    4. What does the psalmist do to face this condition?
    5. Psalms 42 & 43 point us to the true hope we can have in the midst of trouble. What is that hope and how does the Gospel of Jesus help deepen our understanding of that hope?
