Being rebuked or corrected is rarely a comfortable or fun experience, but rebuke always requires a response from us. How we respond to rebuke will reveal our level of repentance on the matter, so we must handle rebuke with care.
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOR SHEPHERD GROUPS
- Share a time you were rebuked by someone. How did you respond?
- Read & discuss 1 Chronicles 13. What does this chapter tell us about the nature of man? Of God?
- In what ways does the Ark of the Covenant forshadow Jesus Christ?
- In this message, Jason shares a sequence that often takes place when we experience rebuke: Shock > Anger > Fear > Response. How do you observe this in David from 1 Chronicles 13? In what ways have you personally experienced that sequence?
- How does rebuke require a response? How does response reveal repentance (or lack thereof)?
- Is there an area, situation or person in your life that you need to reach out to in humble repentance? How can your small group pray for you and encourage you in that area?
