THE UPSIDE OF WEAKNESSES

May 29, 2022 Speaker: Jesse Bradley Series: A Jesus Community

Passage: 2 Corinthians 12:11–13:4

The apostle Paul is transparent about the tests he endures, and the reason he perseveres. Reliance on God brings freedom. Your greatest ministry opportunities are born in your challenges and tragedies. 

Your Journey with Jesus:
1) The foolishness of boasting
2) The realities of ministry
3) The power of God

Reflection Question: What are you all about?

Key Elements:
Weaknesses and Strengths
The Power of God
Hope When Life Is Overwhelming

Calling from God
More Difficult
More Opposition
More Impact

Healing from God:
The Sensational
The Gradual
The Eventual

Opening Questions:
1) What current news stories are leading you to pray more?
2) Why are fewer people going to church in America and what can be done?
3) What BLESS (Begin with prayer, listen, eat, serve and share) story can you share?

Text Questions:
1) 2 Corinthians 11:23-29 Why is Paul sharing all of this personal information?

2) 2 Corinthians 12:7-9 How do you boast about your weaknesses? 

3) 2 Corinthians 12:10 When have you experienced the power of God in your life? 

4) Psalm 73:26 How would you teach someone to rely on God's strength and experience that comfort and freedom? 

5) Isaiah 40:28-31 When has God done this in your life and how is the wind of the Spirit moving now to help you soar?

6) 1 Peter 5:7 How often do you choose this verse and how would you explain what you do with someone who doesn't know Jesus yet?

7) Matthew 26:41 What needs to change with your praying? 

 

Spend time asking for the Holy Spirit's help for one another.
