Heroes – Rahab LG Study!

1154746963_eade26b11cIntroduction – Read Joshua 2

Life is too short to play it safe. Following Christ involves plenty of risk and we have got to overcome our fear of standing out in the crowd for Jesus sake. Rahab was an ordinary person who did an extraordinary thing for God’s people. She had every reason to sell out to the pressure surrounding her and give into the shame of the mistakes of her past. Instead Rahab chose faith in God and courage in the face of adversity. Rahab demonstrated extraordinary faith in God, not because of what she had seen but because of what she had heard. Romans 10:17 says “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.” 

3 Principles – There are three key principles that stand out in Rahab’s story. 

  1. Godly choices can involve risk – What Godly choices have you made that involved personal risk to you?
  2. Be ready to take an unexpected turn – What unexpected turns have you had to make in following Jesus?
  3. Keep your covenant with God – What is a covenant and what covenant have you made with God in the past?

Passion vs Apathy

Rahab chose passionate risk over apathy. Apathy is a state of indifference and disconnection from life. It’s so important to not let your soul be numbed by the cares and affairs of life. Choose passionate faith instead. We all have reasons to give up on life and people but followers of Jesus refuse to give in to the prevailing apathy in our culture. 

Questions

  1. Discuss the statement, “She’ll be right mate!” in the context of ‘apathy’.
  2. What do you think are the trigger points for apathy in our lives?
  3. Where have you allowed apathy to creep into your life?
  4. What is passion a byproduct of?
  5. Where do you think you can engage more passionately at Activate Church?

Lead the Change!
