Discussion Questions

  1. What do you do when you face a disappointing circumstance? Mope about it? Complain about it? Get angry about it? What should be the Christian’s response to disappointing circumstances?

  2. Some contend that the doctrine of God’s sovereignty promotes fatalism: What will be, will be. So why pray? Why evangelize? How would you answer this biblically?

  3. What truths from Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection might you preach to yourself when you’re in the midst of suffering?
