Blessed to Be a Blessing (Study Questions)

Here are the discussion questions that accompany my message from this past weekend at Eastbrook Church entitled “Blessed to Be a Blessing.”

  1. What do you think it means to be ‘blessed’ by God? What are some of the blessings God has given you in your life?
  2. Genesis 12:1-3 records God’s first conversation with Abraham (called Abram at this point). Read that portion of Scripture out loud. What does God ask Abraham to do and what does God say that He will do?
  3. God’s promise to Abraham has two main parts: 1) God’s promise to bless Abraham as a new nation, and 2) God’s promise to bless other nations through Abraham. What do these two aspects of God’s promise tell us about what God is like?
  4. When was a time that you experienced God blessing others through you?
  5. How does Jesus relate to God’s promise to Abraham? Consult the following Scripture passages: Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 19:10; John 3:16; 8:56-58; Acts 3:25; Romans 4:16-17; Galatians 3:16, 26-29; 6:15-16.
  6. If God desires for all the nations to be blessed, what are the implications for the church and its work?
  7. Here are a couple of practical ways that you could respond to this study.  Write down a list of blessings that God has given to you: material, economic, relational, spiritual, etc. Thank God for these blessings. Consider one way that you could bless someone else this week, whether here or around the world.  Write it down, reflect on it, and put it into practice this week. If you are in a small group, discuss this with one another.
