Small Group Questions (Whole Group):
Read Acts 14:1-18
In what ways are people’s minds "poisoned" (Acts 14:2)? How do we combat the poisoning of minds (Acts 14:3)?
How do you know when to keep witnessing (Acts 14:3) and when to flee (Acts 14:6)
How do you see ministers "worshiped" today? What are the dangers of exalting a "celebrity pastor"? How did Paul and Barnabas react when they were worshiped (Acts 14:14)? Why is humility such an important trait for people serving in church leadership
(Bonus questions!) Break down Paul and Barnabas’ sermon in Acts 14:15-17. What subjects did they address? How is it different than Paul's sermon in Acts 13:16-41? Why did they take a completely different approach to the people of Lystra? What does this say about the way we should view evangelism?
Pray for one another to have longevity, tenacity, and humility.
