Too Good to Be True | Hope

Sermon Discussion Guide | These questions are based on teaching by Luke McGee (EL) and Seth Hoover (WR) on April 23, 2017.

What caught your attention in this message?

Tension | From your experience, what sounds too good to be true about hope?

Theology | Read Hebrews 6:1-20. According to this passage, what is our hope? And where has Jesus anchored our hope?

Application | This morning we learned that biblical hope is certain confidence, not wishful thinking. What does this mean to you, and what “next step” can you take from the teaching this morning?


Multiply Discussion Guide |  We are in week 11/15 in our first LifeGroup semester. Our reading & questions this week are from section 4, chapter 8, entitled: The Kingdom of God.

What caught your attention in this chapter?

  1. Take a minute to think about what you learned about God by reading Genesis 1 and 2. How is God’s kingship established and displayed in the creation account?

  2. Read 1 Samuel 8. What does this passage tell us about the significance of Israel’s choosing to be ruled by a human king?

  3. Read 2 Samuel 7. What promises did God make to David in this passage?

  4. Spend some time thinking about these promises of a coming King (consider looking up the passages mentioned in the last two paragraphs). How does the concept of a King arising from the line of David set the stage for Jesus’s arrival in the New Testament?

  5. Read Jesus’s birth announcement in Luke 1:26–33. How does the language used here help us see Jesus in light of the Old Testament kingdom?

  6. Why is it important for us to see Jesus as the culmination of the kingly line of David?

  7. How should the kingship of God and of His Anointed affect the way we view our relationship to God and His Son?

  8. Spend some time in prayer. Pray that God would help you to lovingly submit to His rule as the King of creation. Pray that God’s reign over this world would be established and that this rebellious world would see Jesus as the true King.
