THREE THINGS TO KNOW
DON’T MISS THIS
We added a service for Easter! This year, we are hosting a 7:30 am service on Easter to help provide extra room and keep people safe. For more information or to reserve a seat for an Easter service, visit adabible.info.
Easter is just around the corner, and it may look different this year, again. As a group, think through some creative ways to invite someone who may not usually attend church or feel comfortable going to church to join you in your home, in a small gathering or another way.
GROW AS A LEADER
Our next leader huddle is quickly approaching. On April 25, we will be getting together to talk about serving and to do a service project together. For more information and to register, click here.
Welcome to the final week of our series Honest to God. This week, Guest Pastor John Dickson shares how the Psalms offer words to pray to God for every situation in life.
Easter is just one week away. What is your favorite thing to do at Easter?
Have someone read Psalm 22 aloud. What stands out to you in this passage?
SONGS FOR LIFE
Pastor John Dickson said there is a Psalm for whatever situation you find yourself in. How have the Psalms been helpful to you either through this series or in times of your life?
CONTRADICTIONS OF LIFE
David bounces between despair about his circumstances but also trusting in God’s goodness and faithfulness. When have you experienced this type of contradiction between what you know in your head about God—but feel about your situation?
PETITION FOR LIFE
Have someone read Luke 18:1-8 aloud. Jesus teaches the power of persisting in prayer through a parable about a widow petitioning a corrupt judge. Who have you seen live out this type of persistent prayer?
Psalm 22 models bringing our requests to God even when the situation exceeds our faith. How does this encourage you not to give up praying for a current situation in your life?
PROMISE FOR LIFE
David lands the Psalm confident that the good future God promises his people has already been completed. We can look back and see how Jesus fulfilled that promise. Where do you need to remember that Christ assures God’s promise of future restoration?
HIS LIFE FOR OURS
Jesus’ suffering on the cross directly mirrors David’s suffering in Psalm 22. Pastor John said because of Jesus’ death on the cross, “Whatever our suffering means, it cannot mean God does not care.” How can your group remind each other of God’s deep love for you while suffering?
Jesus didn’t just suffer the pain of Psalm 22, but he fulfills the Psalm’s promise of life. As we head into Easter, what is one way you want to focus on Christ’s sacrifice on your behalf?
This sermon series has been about how God invites us to be raw and honest with him. How has this Honest to God series encouraged you to use the Psalms in your conversations with God about your life’s struggles?
