Growth Group Questions | Week of October 16, 2011

Here are this week’s Growth Group questions based on Mark 1:9-11. And remember, if you were not able to be in the service on Sunday, you can listen to the sermon at the Immanuel Bible Church website.

Striving with you to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18).



  • Have you ever felt God’s pleasure? If so, how would you describe it? (Cf., Eric Liddell quote from the movie Chariots of Fire: “I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.”)
  • What is the great foundation of God’s pleasure in His people? Why is this good news?
  • The sermon detailed three things about Jesus Christ from this text. What were they?
  • What is so significant about the baptism of Jesus? What did this event signal? (Cf., Isaiah 53:6)
  • What mission was Jesus commissioned for at His baptism? What does this say about our mission as a church? (Cf., 2 Cor. 5:20)
  • What reasons were given in the sermon for the Father’s love and pleasure in His Son? (Cf., Heb. 1:3 and John 10:17)

    Thanks so much for the questions. Bill and I aren’t in a group right now so it’s great to do these on our own. Technology is great—————God’s world has so much to give us, doesn’t it? Makes all the crummy stuff seem insignificant——well at least a little less so!!
