Opening Questions

  • What stood out to you in the sermon? 
  • What insights did you gain? 
  • What questions did it raise?

1 Chronicles 28:1-10

  • What stands out to you most from David’s last speech? 
  • Why do you think he emphasizes what he does?

1 Chronicles 28:9 “…acknowledge the God of your Father…”

  • Acknowledge is translated from the Hebrew word yada. For other examples of this word yada read Psalm 9:10, Exodus 2:25, and Genesis 4:1.  What does this teach us about what it means to know the Lord?
  • How would you describe the difference between knowing God and knowing about God?
  • If you were going to help someone who wanted to know God better, what practical advice would you give them?

1 Chronicles 28:9 “…serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind…”

  • What is your response to this point from the sermon: “you can either serve the Lord or you will end up serving something else”? 
  • Why is it that when we pursue or chase after things other than the Lord we end up serving them instead of those things serving us?
