Review:Listen to Incomparably Sovereign
When I believe God is sovereign...
- I believe He uses trials for Good! (Acts 8:1-4)
- I believe He can save Anyone! (Acts 8:1, 3)
- I believe He has Work for me to do. (Acts 8:5-8)
Review: Gal 4:13 | Phil 1:12
Suffering is a vehicle to witness!!

Small Group Questions (Whole Group):
Read Acts 8:1-8
Concerning Stephen’s death and the persecution fallout, how would you describe God’s involvement in that? Did God actively “CAUSE” Stephen’s death and the persecution? Did God just “ALLOW” it?
Consider your answer to number 1 above. What is God’s involvement in a trial you are facing right now? Is He causing it, allowing it, unaware of it… what?
Why do you think God so often chooses to use suffering to accomplish His purposes?
- Pray for faith to trust God’s sovereignty and purposes through whatever trial you are going through.
