October 27, 2019: Episode 14 | Speaking of Scars

The message that sparked the conversation ... Walk with Me.

What kind of scars do you have? Whether they are physical or emotional, scars are a reminder of an experience. Join us as we discuss the lasting marks that have shaped us and how God uses them.

Discussion Questions

  1. Do you have a memorable scar? Is there a background story?

  2. How have the memories associated with this scar shaped the person you're becoming?

  3. What, if anything, might this scar mean for your future?

  4. In Genesis 17, God introduces a practice that will leave all the males in Abraham's family scarred for life: circumcision. God says it's a "sign" of the promise He made to Abraham in chapter 12 and repeated in chapter 15. Listening to this chapter, what stands out?

  5. The New Testament describes circumcision as a fulfilled sign, and no longer needed because Jesus is the long-awaited heir of Abraham: "in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love" (Galatians 5:6, see also, Acts 15). The sign of circumcision was replaced by baptism, by which you have "been buried with [Christ], in which you were also raised with him through faith" (Colossians 2:11-12). Considering his pattern of providing signs to go with His promise, what do you come to know more deeply about God?

  6. How is this good news for you?

  7. What do you want to share about this with people in your household, church, or community?
