What impacted you the most from last Sunday’s Message as well as from the King of Hearts Growth guides?

Share Together

When have you experienced what you would consider a holy moment?

Read & Discuss Together  2 Samuel 6:1-15
  • What is the “ark of God?” How and why was it being moved?

  • How is Uzzah’s act of trying to be helpful “irreverent?” What are your thoughts/feelings about what God did to him?


  • How does the phrase “familiarity can breed contempt” fit in this situation? Why?


  • What does such burning anger reveal about God’s holiness and its importance?


  • Why do you think David waited three months before attempting to move it again? 


  • How does an understanding of God’s holiness impact our approach to worship and daily living?

  • How should we approach “handling the holy” in our lives? How is it different today because of what Christ has done than in David’s day? 


  • What is true worship as a follower of Jesus? See John 4:23. How shall we practice this in Christ-centered communities ourselves and invite others to be included?
