INTRODUCTION
“Broken” sermon series - Wk4. Last week we looked at Psalm 51 and David’s response to his brokenness through confession & repentance.  This week we explore how God not only forgives, heals, redeems, and restores ‘the broken’ but God also USES ‘the broken’ in accomplishing his divine works. God has a plan for you and I. He “re-purposes” us all for His glory.
Key Passages: 1 Cor 1:18-31; 2 Cor 4:3; Peter's example: (Jn 13:36-38),(18:15-18, 25-27) (21:15-19)
   Other: _______________________________________________________________

QUESTIONS

  1. Ask if someone can give the primary sermon points to refresh the message (be prepared to do this yourself if needed).
  2. [ask the group to] Share a person in the bible with whom you can relate to their brokenness. [leader be prepared to share one as well]
  3. God has used millions of people to do His plans, how many perfect people has God used? (1)
  4. When you see people being open about their “brokenness”/sin, what feelings/thoughts do you have?
  5. Read 1 Cor 1:18-31. Regarding v26-31…
    1. … who does God choose to use? (the foolish, weak, lowly, despised, even things that are not) 
    2. … why? (God doesn’t want boasters v29)
  6. GOING DEEPER: What has God been telling you to do but you haven’t obeyed yet… because you don’t feel worthy, smart enough, brave enough, educated enough, etc?
  7. Ask if there are any other personal observations or takeaways from the scripture or sermon.

PRAYER FOCUS
Pray for a renewed “confidence” in the Lord for believers in the church; to follow, to serve, to obey Christ in everything. Pray for an “ALL IN” surrender from us all.
