Theme: Reset

Share Together:

When did you get a second chance at something?

Reflect Together:

What impacted you the most from last week’s reading that you expressed in your Genesis Growth Guide as well as learned from last Sunday’s gathering? What does it mean that our decisions determine our destination?

Read Together:

Genesis 6:1-9 & 22 (divide reading between group members)

Discuss Together:
  • What do you find interesting or even confusing in these first four verses?
  • How does the description of the state of the world compel God to bring a flood to destroy the world that He created?  
  • How can God have regrets? Does this not contradict his nature? Why or why not?
  • How does that speak to you in dealing with your own regrets? 
  • What was it about Noah that God found favor and chose him to fulfill his plan? How could those attributes relate to how God wants to use us?
  • The rest of chapter 6 speaks of what God was going to do and what he wanted Noah to do. What was significant about Noah’s response in verse 22? 
  • How is obedience linked to trust? How is half obedience disobedience? What is an example today or personally?
Read Together:

Genesis 8:20-22

Discuss Together:
  • What was significant about Noah’s response after he and his family left the ark? What does it speak to our first priorities in our faith and the activity of our lives? What was God’s response?
  • As Jesus represents the ark for our lives, do you feel like you have a need for a reset in your life for new beginnings ahead?
Pray Together:

How as a group can we pray for you? Share any updates or stories of what God has done for you or those you know.

Next Week’s Reminder:

In preparation for next week’s gathering and Group, remember to read Genesis 10-11 and write your responses in your growth guide.
