Home group questions
Read Matthew2 v 13-23
- In a group of 3 discuss what most impressed you in this passage?
- We learn that God used something evil to force the child Jesus to be taken into Egypt and so to fulfil his purposes for our Lord Jesus. Can you give a personal example of where suffering has brought about God’s purposes .
- Joseph was given some tough messages in his dreams. In our society do you think that we have become obsessed with feeling good and being happy? Could this be a factor in us not being willing to hear hard things in messages at Fullbridge?
