FOCUS Lenten Bible Study

For Benefactors, Friends, Alumni, & Parishioners

Session 4 - March 15th - Abraham Part 2

Discussion Questions

  1. Which part of the Bible study stuck out to you?
  2. In what ways did God’s previous interactions with Abraham, both joyful and difficult, prepare him to respond to God’s invitation to sacrifice Isaac? How can we view God’s interventions in our own lives as preparation for future invitations to trust?
  3. God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, and Abraham was prepared to surrender his son to the Lord. But the Lord allowed Isaac to live. Have you ever surrendered something to God that God later ended up giving you back? Why does the Lord ask us to surrender things to Him?
  4. Like Abraham with Hagar, how are you tempted to “take things into your own hands” apart from God’s will? In what areas of your life do you struggle to trust in God’s plan for you?
