Questions - Find Rest

August 5, 2019, 12:11 PM

The following questions relate to the sermon on 4 August 2019, Find Rest. The primary passage is Mark 4:35-40. Two other scriptures used were Mark 2:23-28 and Matthew 14.

  1. Read Exodus 20:8-1 What is the sabbath according to scripture?
  2. In Mark 2:27, Jesus said, “Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” What does this mean to you?
  3. Do you feel like you have time to rest, like the Bible requires us to? Why or why not?
  4. Read Mark 4:35-40. (note this passage is in between Jesus teaching and casting out a demon)  Amid the busyness and chaos of life, do you have faith that God will take care of you and allow you rest? Why or why not?
  5. How do you rest in God throughout the week? How could rest in God more?
  6. Why is it important to spend time resting and connecting with family and friends? Can you think of anywhere in scripture where Jesus did this?
  7. Do you take time for yourself? Read Matthew 14. (Jesus took time for himself, and it is okay for us to do the same thing)
  8. End spending some time praying that the lord would give you rest, and God would become resting place.
