Discussion Questions

For the week of 09.19.21 // Cycle Breaker, Cycle Maker


Intro: Read Genesis 1:24-31. Write down at least four truths that pertain to us as image bearers of God and write down one sentence as to the importance of each one. Also pick which truth really spoke to you at this season of life. Be ready to discuss all your writings with your group. Please take your time reading it multiple times. 

 

1.Now let’s drill down further. Read Psalm 8:3-5. What does this teach us about us humans and how does go against modern enlightened thinking? Explain 

 

2. Psalm 8:3 God holds the whole universe together yet thinks of you and me. What particular circumstances lead you personally to doubt this at times? Explain 

 

3. Okay, we’ve spent the first part of this discussion emphasizing the reality that we are all created in the image (intellectual ability) and likeness (moral likeness otherwise we cannot communicate with God) of God. But after Adam and Eve sin, shame enters they cover up the image. They “reject the image of God” and in doing so reject themselves. What are some reasons it is very unhealthy to reject our self? Explain 

 

4. One of the symptoms of rejecting our self is that we hunt, we look for proof that you are or will reject me. Because if I reject me, you’ll reject me. How does something like this affect our relationship with others and with God? Explain 

 

5. Now once a person begins looking for proof of rejection then they misinterpret words, actions, facial expressions, you name it they read into it and misinterpret it. And the filter of misinterpretation is “rejection.” Once they enter into this crazy cycle they begin “reenacting the rejection.” What do I mean? They sabotage the relationship, quickly move to another relationship, sabotage that, quickly move to another relationship, sabotage that etc. etc. They do it with people, churches, small groups, friends, jobs, school, family, you name it they reenact it. It’s a Cycle that must be broken. Have you ever seen it? Have you ever experienced it?  Explain
