Life Group Questions


Starter:  What are you going to do to have a better year in 2019?



  • Read Ephesians 1:3
  • The instruction to “Praise God” is actually an instruction to “Bless God.”  In your opinion, what does it mean to bless God?
  • God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings.    Are you ever afraid God has left out a blessing you need?  What are you afraid God has forgotten?  How does it make you feel to realize God gives you every spiritual blessing you need?
  • Read Ephesians 1:4-5
  • Identify all the relational language in these verses.  What does that communicate to you?
  • How do you feel about the idea of God choosing people before the beginning of creation and then allowing us chose as well?  What does it say to you that God does not reconcile these two ideas in scripture?
  • Read Ephesians 1:6-8a.
  • In your opinion, why do people still try to “earn” God’s grace? 
  • What does it mean to you that God is “rich in grace?”  What does that say to his church?
  • Read Ephesians 1:8b-10.
  • In your opinion, do people struggle more with God’s will that seems hidden, or with God’s will that is known?  Why?
  • If we know the outcome of universe (God’s will prevails), how does that change our daily lives and choices?
