All In #1 - A Study in the book of Ephesians

Ephesians 1:1-2

September 15, 2019 • Jason Carson

TOGETHER GROUP QUESTIONS Read Ephesians 1:1-10. What is God’s Word saying to you in this passage? What is God’s heart for His people? In verse 1, Paul speaks of being an apostle “by the will of God.” Why do you think this was important for him to emphasize? What was his life like before Christ and how did the Lord change him? Why is it important to know that every Christian is a saint? Have you ever viewed yourself as a saint? Why or why not is it difficult to see yourself (and others!) as a saint? Are there any believers in your life that you have trouble treating as a saint? How would Jesus want to change our hearts? Grace is the foundation and beginning of our faith, and Peace is the fulfillment and the end of our faith. Describe how both grace AND peace are being worked out in your life (i.e. Do you see it working, is it non-existent, is it easy or hard, do you have trouble giving or receiving grace and peace- or both?) “ALL IN” is the series title. The 1st half of Ephesians tells us who we are IN CHRIST, and the 2nd half tells us how to be “ALL IN” in living it out. Name one or two ways that you can focus on being “In” Christ, and one or two ways on how you can live out your faith… All In.

TOGETHER GROUP QUESTIONS Read Ephesians 3:20-21. What is God’s Word saying to you in this passage? What is God’s heart for His people? What are the measurable circumstances in your life? Are these circumstances stopping you to hear God’s voice and/or taking steps of faith? If so, how? If not, why not? If measurable circumstances were out of the question (i.e. not an issue or hinder in your life) how would you serve God right now? Be honest with your answer. In the book of Genesis, chapter 37-39, Joseph, the most beloved of Jacob's sons, is hated by his envious brothers. He is sold into slavery by his brothers and later imprisoned by Potiphar. Read Genesis 39:19-21. After reading Genesis 39:19-21, what is God’s Word saying to you in this passage? How can you relate to Joseph and his “measurable” circumstance? How does Joseph respond to his measurable circumstance?
