CG Questions: Hebrews 4:12-16

1. What’s your favorite book or movie?
Why do you like the book/movie?

2. What do you love about the Bible?

3. Why do you think the Word is described as a Sword? How can a sword cause damage? How can a sword cut in order to heal? 

4. Can you describe a time when the Word of God “cut you to the heart” in order to heal you?

4. How does the idea of EVERYTHING being “exposed” make you feel? (Heb. 4:13). Are we sometimes tempted to “excuse” or “defend” yourself by way of “half-truths?”

5. How does Hebrews 4:14 bring comfort to our standing “exposed” before God?

6. Jesus is described as an Advocate. He sympathizes with us. Jesus is SAFE. How do you approach Jesus through prayer? What feelings come to your mind and heart when you move toward prayer? How do you feel like your great High Priest feels about you speaking with Him?

7. Can you share a time when you encountered God powerfully through prayer?

8. Notice the author says we can approach the throne of GRACE with confidence. What if the Word said it was a “throne of JUDGEMENT” instead? How might that change things?

9. Why are people sometimes slow to pray? 4:16 says prayer = we are needy. We find grace in our “time of need.” Why is it hard to be needy?”

10. What needs do you have? Will you call on your brothers and sisters to pray for you as you express needs? Do that now.
