Discuss Acts 12:1-5

  1. In what way did God comfort, challenge, or correct you today?
  2. W. S. Armstrong’s tombstone says, “God calls away when He thinks best.” Gertrude Armstrong’s epithet reads, “She died as she lived–a Christian.” What do you want your tombstone to say about you?

  4. What is simple about being a Christian? What is profound?

  6. Christian, what are you giving up or laying aside in order to make more room in your heart and schedule for Christ?
  7. Jesus’ goal is to present us to himself without sin. Is your goal, upon your death, to be presented to Christ without sin? How do you know?
  8. Christians weren’t arrested, beaten, and executed because of what they did in the privacy of their own homes. Why were Christians arrested, beaten, and executed?
  9. Why should a church pray fervently to God? What should a church pray fervently to God about?
  10. What can you do to help others around you feast daily on Jesus through Bible reading and dependent prayer?
