 OCTOBER BIBLE STUDY

  

OCTOBER 6  SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

Habakkuk 1:1-4; 2:1-4 Is it OK to get mad at God?  Where are you crying out and don’t feel heard?  How do you feel when God’s answer is, “Wait”?

Psalm 37:1-9  Is it easy to be envious of so-called successful people?  Who are the people we should model our lives after? Does being “meek” mean that you are weak?  Is the “land you will inherit” a place or a way of life?

2 Timothy 1:1-14 Who are the people in your “family of faith”?  What are some ways to talk about faith and read the Bible with your family?  Do you think Paul expects too much out of Timothy? What ministry has God entrusted to you?

Luke 17:5-10 Is faith something given to you, or something you get by doing?  Are you noble because you forgive someone, or just doing what you were supposed to?  Who are you supposed to call and make a broken relationship better? Does remembering that Jesus forgave your sin help you to forgive others?

 

OCTOBER 13 EIGHTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

2 Kings 5:1-3, 7-15c What’s the worst disease that you ever had to deal with?  How can pride keep one from available help? Is it only the physical that needs to be healed in Naaman?  How would you describe the relationship between Naaman and his servants? How broad is God’s healing circle?  Where do you need healing in your life?

Psalm 111   How do you think things are going for the writer of this psalm?  Do you stop and give thanks to God for small and great things? How does revering God bring us wisdom?(vs.10)

2 Timothy 2:8-15 What is “good suffering”?  How can we be “chained” yet our faith in Christ  be “not chained”?  What do think it means that God can “disown” us, yet still love us and be faithful to us?

Luke 17:11-19 What do you think it’s like to be a leper?  Is it possible to get so busy that we don’t make time for gratitude?  Can gratitude be forced? How was the Samaritan “more well” than the others?

OCTOBER 20  NINETEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

Genesis 32:22-31 Do you feel comfortable wrestling with God?  Do you believe that you can be touched by God and your life will be changed?

Psalm 121 Do you pray to God for protection when you travel.  Where do you feel most vulnerable? How do you protect yourself?  

2 Timothy 3:14—4:5 “All scripture” in this case refers to the Old Testament.  When you read or hear the Bible, do you look to be taught or redirected in your life?  Are you willing to stand up for what you think is right, even if others disagree?

Luke 18:1-8 When you see injustice, do you give up or hang tough in prayer?  Who still needs to be on your prayer list, even if they haven’t come around yet?

OCTOBER 27  REFORMATION SUNDAY

Jeremiah 31:31-34 The Old Covenant was the 10 Commandments, which they failed to comply with.  Which commandment(s) are you most likely to break? God can “forget” people’s sins.  Can we? Should we?

Psalm 46 What natural disasters have you experienced?  Where did you go for shelter? How does your faith in God help you in the midst of your fears?  

Romans 3:19-28 Have you or a loved one ever been in trouble with the law?  How did that feel? What would happen if we “got what we deserved”?  When you see a police car, do you worry more about upholding or breaking the law?  What does it mean to you that God has “bailed us out” and “paid the price” for our sins?

John 8:31-36 What kind of teaching “ties you up”?  Is it better to admit that we are “enslaved” by certain habits, or to pretend that we are “totally free”?  Where in your life would you like to experience more freedom? How does God’s grace in Christ free us up?

NOVEMBER 3  ALL SAINTS SUNDAY

Daniel 7:1-3, 15-18 What kind of dreams have you had?  Do you see better or worse times ahead for our world?  Does your place in the eternal kingdom help you work through troubles in this world?  What is your vision of Heaven?

Psalm 149 What four actions are used to praise God?  Do you think you need to be actively opposing evil in the world around you?  In your life?  

Ephesians 1:11-23 What are the three prayers Paul prays for the Ephesians and what will be the effect of each prayer?  Do you have a sense that you are part of something much bigger than you and just right now? Are you willing to be an example to the next generations?

Luke 6:20-31 Batteries charge better when they are drained of their power.  Are you willing to let yourself be drained or admit that you are drained, so that God can fully recharge your faith?  Does admitting your weakness make you a weak person? Does it give you more empathy for those who are more obviously hurting?  What does Jesus think about our weaknesses and vulnerability?
