The Gospel and Divorce

September 18, 2022 Speaker: Eric Baker Series: Fight The Drift: A Study of 1 Corinthians

Missional Community Questions

1. Reread 1 Corinthians 7. If possible, listen to the sermon(s) again.

2. Looking back over this sermon and this sermon series, how has God convicted your heart, stirred your affections for Jesus, drawn you closer to Him? How has the Word challenged, confused, or made you ask questions?

3. Culturally, divorce is celebrated. People literally throw divorce parties with cake and ice cream. Divorce is a sign to our culture of freedom and liberation, being able to get the bigger better deal whenever, to do what makes you happiest. How does God’s Word challenge that? How does Gods’ Word show us that that is not truly freedom?

4. Were your views changed about divorce, remarriage, and the allowances for divorce at all? How so?

5. How is it obvious throughout scripture that God takes marriage seriously?

6. Do you truly take marriage, all marriage, seriously? If so, why? If not, why not? How can you take even your own marriage even more seriously in order to better align your relationship with God’s Word and it’s authority?

7. If it true that God hates divorce, and it is, why does he hate it so much? Is it simply the act of divorce he hates so passionately?
