Getting to grips with: Being a Submissive Church

If you missed it, here's a link: Getting to grips with: Being a Submissive Church


 Reading: James 4:1-10
 
  1. What thoughts come to mind when you think about being submissive?
  2. What are the results of a lack of submission to God? Read through the first 4 verses and discuss the various points James raises.
  3. James looks back to the Old Testament in Verses 5 and 6. Discuss what it means for God to be a jealous God? And how does this link with His desire to give us overwhelming grace?
  4. Verse 7-10: what is the difference between submission and obedience?
  5. How can/should we apply this to our lives today?
