ICE BREAKER: Who are some of the happiest people you know? What do you think fuels their joy?
SERMON DIGESTION: Your chance to reflect personally on the sermon.
Pastor Thomas’ sermon & series premise is that the Bible commands Christians to pursue pleasure.
READ Psalm 16:8-11.
Pursuing Pleasure in God Via His Word
Read the following passages and answer these questions (if studying in a group divide up Scriptures):
a) What has God enabled His Word to do for His people?
b) What potential impact would this bring to your life if you devoted yourself to studying the Bible?
c) How could this lead to fuller, God-centered pleasures (in place of the fleeting pleasures of sin)?
Spend time deciding on how your will ferociously commit to reading your Bible this year. Share you plan with others. If you need help deciding on a reading plan talk to your pastor.
