Week 40: 2 Kings 7:3-11 (A Day of Good News)
- What is the most dangerous and frightening situation you have ever been in? How did you respond in this situation?
- In our story, four lepers of Samaria are in a very dangerous situation. What was their situation and how did they respond? Do you think they made a wise decision? Why or why not?
- When they came to the camp of the Syrians, what had happened? What had God done to cause this to happen?
- God sovereignly watches over His people. Read 2 Kings 6:12-17. How are these two stories similar in nature? We can’t always see the ways that God watches over us and cares for us, but how do we know that He does?
- What did the Lepers do at first when they realized the camp was abandoned? Afterward, why did they say to one another, “We are not doing right?” What did they fear would happen to them if they did not do what was right?
- What kind of day did the Lepers say that it was? What great decision did they make about this day of “good news?” In what ways are the actions of these Lepers a great example to follow?
- For each of us who have been saved by faith in Christ, how is today a day of good news? When we fail to share the good news of the Gospel with others, why are we not doing right?
- When is the last time you shared the good news of the Gospel with someone who was lost? How did it go? Why do you think we do not share the Gospel more regularly? How can we do better at this?
- Let’s pray for one another to have an opportunity this week to share the Gospel and to have the courage to do right.
