John Lynch: Philippians 4:6-8 (Discussion Questions)
- Why do you think it would be valuable to find a trusted friend to be able to verbally articulate the things that can worry you in this season?
- Honest, affirmation, with no catch, or nothing to get, is the language of grace. Such affirmation does not puff up the recipient, but actually humbles them and causes them to want to do more of what they’ve been affirmed for in the setting that did the affirming. How would our church, family and work setting be transformed if we learned this art?
- Explain what you think the difference would be of Scripture through a filter of shame and moralism or seeing Scripture with no filter?
- In the message John said, “What if we saw this passage not as something we must perform to get something from Him, but as an invitation into a gift He longs to perform for us?” How do you imagine believing this would change getting to experience this passage (Philippians 4:6-7) more wonderfully?
