For Reflection and Discussion
Read Nehemiah 8:1-12
- Have you experienced any life-changing experiences through reading the Bible or known God’s direction through any specific Bible passage? What role did other people play in you discerning God’s will through His word.
- After listening to or reading the transcript of Andy’s sermon today, is there a next step we think we should be taking with God’s word? (A study course, reading books to help us interpret the Bible, join a study group, use internet resources are just some examples.)
- How can the Bible provide a safe place to process our experiences and face our fears together?
