After the Worship Service

Meditatio (Meditate on the Message)

  1. “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The Omnipotence of God is consistent with God’s other attributes (God’s omnipotence means that God is able to accomplish his good, wise, and holy will).  Read Romans 8:31,35,37-39 again. How does the Sovereignty of God undergird the love of God in this passage?
  2. What does it mean to you that you are “dust” (Gen. 2:7) or “clay” (Jer. 18)? What does it mean to you that God is the Potter?
  3. Discuss John Calvin’s remark: “Until men are brought to know that they so subject go God’s power that their condition can in a single moment be changed, according to his will, they will never be humble as they ought to be.”
  4. Pastor Jason indicates our recognition of “who we are” as dust/clay humbles us but also frees us? In what way does this recognition “free you”? (Do you find any comfort or truth in the statement: “Christianity is the only religion where our identity is received, not achieved.”)
  5. Saving from Situations and Saving from Sin:  What is the kind of power humans long for God to have in our world?  Read Romans 1:16, 1 Cor. 1:18, and John 1:12.  What kind of power is described there?
  6. Compatibilism: “God’s free and unconditioned sovereignty and the responsibility of human beings are mutually compatible.”  How do you see compatibilism at work in Gen. 50 and the cross (Acts 4:27)?
  7. Which point do you most need to learn of these three? Which one is most comforting?
    1: The Sovereignty of God Humbles you (and Frees you) as a creature
    2: God’s Sovereignty Confronts You (and Saves you) as a sinner
    3: God’s Sovereignty Comforts You (and Equips you) as a Christian

Operatio (Put it into Practice)

What is one thing that I can meditate on or put into practice this week?

Oratio (Respond in Prayer to God)

What are your prayer request and praises that you can lift up before the Father right now?

Donatio (Give to the Work of the Lord)

Generosity springs from God’s generous love and mercy to us. As Christians, we recognize that no organization on the planet has changed the world in deep, eternal, transformative ways like God has used the local church.
