Growth Group Questions | Week of February 19, 2012

Here are this week’s Growth Group questions based on Mark 2:1-12. 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).


  • What was suggested to be Mark’s “editorial purpose” in telling this miracle story?
  • How is it helpful to see Jesus’ greatness? In other words, how does beholding the glory of Christ help with everyday stuff?
  • What does the activity of the four friends in this story say about Jesus?
  • Are you willing to do whatever it takes to get your family and friends in front of Jesus? How can we pray for each other in this area?
  • How does it make you feel to know that God knows your heart? (cf., Ps. 139:1-6; Heb. 4:13)
  • Why is the forgiveness of sins greater than healing of paralysis? How does it make you feel to know that your sins are forgiven through faith in Christ?

  1. Awesome sermon, even this post modernist could understand , chew and enjoy it… I pray some day I have 1% of the faith of the four friends. in defense of the conservative Post-Modernists, we do not want to change the Gospel; we want to change the culture of self free will, self love and self worship. I believe the Christians need to return the beliefs of the church fathers [ Augustine , Jerome, etc and the doctrines and philosophy of Luther and Calvin [ TULIP]; therfore running away the idea popularized by Charles Wesley that “there is some good in mankind” in his sermon “Free Grace” George Whitfield responde to Wesley was classic ” say It is not so”a few moe Whitfield quotes: [1] Among the many reasons assignable for the sad decay of true Christianity, perhaps the neglecting to assemble ourselves together, in religious societies, may not be one of the least, [2] No, the religion of Jesus is a social religion. and [3] Fight the good fight of faith, and God will give you spiritual mercies.
