Study Aid Questions


Hedding Camp Meeting Questions:  Mark 1:14-20, Wednesday 8/5

1.  Describe a time in which someone spoke powerful words to you. 


2.  What is the 'kingdom of God?'


3.  Jesus' kingdom call pulled the disciples from their former life to a life that centered around Jesus.  How has answering the kingdom call centered your life around Jesus?  How can you build His kingdom more in your life and in your sphere of influence?  


Answer the kingdom call and make Him Lord of all.  He'll change the direction of your life...for eternity.  



Hedding Camp Meeting Questions:  Mark 1:9-13, Tuesday 8/4

1.  John looks forward to 'the powerful' one (v.7).  Then Jesus steps onto the scene.  Mark tells us he's from Nazareth.  Why is this information significant?


2.  Read verses 10-11.  What is the significance behind the three details regarding Jesus' baptism:  heaven is 'torn;' the Spirit descends like a dove; God speaks (Psalm 2:7 and Is. 42:1)


3.  What happens in the 'wilderness?'


4.  Why does Mark mention the 'wild animals' in the wilderness?


5.  Mark says that '...angels attended' Jesus.  How have you experienced the resources of heaven in your wilderness?


God is doing something new in the most unexpected places.  He's at work in the wilderness.



Hedding Camp Meeting Questions:  Philippians 4:2-7, Monday 8/3

1.  Describe your level of conflict:  inner, personal, extra-personal (institution/nature).  Is your 'plot' complicated or complex?


2.  Whom do you think God is calling you to be more gentle toward?


3.  Are you a good model of a joyful Christian?  


4.  Do you ever feel as if you are carrying around the weight of your sin?  If so, ask God to take it from you.  Thank him for doing so and ask him to fill you with His joy and His peace that transcends all understanding.  


5.  Why does Paul use a military image to describe peace:  '...and the peace of God will guard (garrison) your hearts in Christ Jesus...'  How does that make you feel?


Conflict causes anxiety, but prayer promises peace.  That's a promise.  Not a perhaps.
