*These questions are personal. They target the heart and put healthy responsibility on your group to spend time with God and seek the Lord.
Take turns, Go around and have each person answer all 3 questions.
1. How are you doing spiritually? (SPIRITUALLY!!!)
2. What’s one thing that stuck out to you from John 8:1-12 or in the sermon? Why?
3. What’s one thing (sin) you’re struggling with right now that we can pray for you about?
Question bank (If Needed) Don't use every Point/Question Choose some favorites based on your group Specifically!
This passage shows us a great picture of broken people, Spiritual blindness, and a merciful savior! It is not just a passage about an adulterous woman, but a picture of an adulterous people! We have all fallen short of the glory of God! It shows us that whether we are a teacher of the law, a woman caught in adultery, or anywhere in between, we all are in desperate need of saving from our sins! We should be aware of self-righteousness in our own lives. When we understand that we have done nothing to earn our salvation but are simply recipients of Grace, that’s when we see our own sin before we see the sin of others. Remember there is no room for self-righteousness in the kingdom of God! Jesus took the stones so we could take the pardon through faith in Him!
- Jesus shows us that the recipe for restoration, forgiveness, and accountability is Grace and Truth! He forgave her and showed her Grace, but He also gave her truth and told her to go and leave her life of sin! Why is it important that we use both together? Have you had any bad experiences with people only using truth or only using Grace when trying to shepherd others?
- How have you seen self-righteousness come out of you in your own life? What is your first response when you see others fall into sin and what does that reveal about your own heart?
- What is so scandalous about this passage (and the Gospel) is that not only did Jesus forgive her, but he took her place in order to do so! He picked up the stones and threw them at himself on Calvary! How does this truth change everything when we truly understand it?
