Each believer is uniquely gifted by God with spiritual gifts and talents, and these are meant to be used “for the common good” (1 Corinthians 12:7). Yet, there is constant spiritual warfare raging all around us, all the time – we simply fail to see it. The spiritual battles being fought are meant to keep Christians from being a gift to the church and subtly remove us from “active duty.”
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOR SHEPHERD GROUPS
- Read and discuss Romans 12:1-8. What do these verses tell you about God? About man?
- How have you seen or experienced the realities of spiritual warfare in your walk with Christ?
- Read and discuss Luke 8:11-15. How have you been “choked by the cares, pleasures and riches of this world”? How does one escape this?
- Do you know what your spiritual giftings are? How are you using these as a gift to the church?
