Your small group members are about to get back in the tempo of normal life. School is about to begin again. They may need to be reminded that times of rest are important. Below you’ll find a Bible study from the Serendipity Bible for Groups you may want to use soon.
Ice-Breaker: What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?
Read Hebrews 4: 1 – 12
Bible Discussion: 1. What do you remember about the origin of the Sabbath? 2. What is the “rest” promised by God: Sunday off? The Pomised Land? How do verses 3 – 10 support your answer? 3. Did God withdraw his offer to the original people who were given the promise? What happened? 4. What is the warning to those who are reading this letter? What does it mean that God’s word is “living”? Active? That it penetrates?
Going Deeper: 1. How would you describe your spiritual diet right now: Healthy? Balanced? Pretty good? Sporadic? Could be better? Terrible? 2. What have you found helpful in keeping a regular devotional life?
In case you haven’t heard of the Serendipity Bible for Groups… The Serendipity Bible for groups has a Bible study like the one above for every passage of Scripture in the Bible.
