WHAT DO WE SEE HERE?
- Read Romans 1:18-25. God is said to give people up to their own lusts, their own desires. Why is this dangerous? Why is it actually kind for God to allow our “gods” to fail us? Where does this kindness lead us?
- Jephthah was an outcast yet God still used him. What should this say to us about our view of other people? Jephthah was a very flawed man yet God still uses him? How is this encouraging? How does it serve us as a warning?
- What is the difference between just feeling sorry and crying out to God and true repentance?
- What are the two parts of true repentance? Change of ________and change in our ___________.
- What did you learn from Jephthah's rash vow? How should we speak and make promises?
- What are some things that we should “rebel against” in this life? How can we live as “repentant rebels” in this world? Rather than rebels who are enemies of God and his truth?
