SUNDAY’S MESSAGE: A Heart Needs Saving (Part 2)

PRIMARY TEXT: Psalm 51, I Samuel 7:1-4, Psalm 139:23-24


  • Respond to Doug’s message. Share with the group 1-2 thoughts that you remember from the message.

  • List some practices that can be meaningful for people to hear from God? Explain how they can be effective.

  • Read I Samuel 7:1-4. How would you define an idol today?

  • Samuel said to pack up the idols up and put them away. Removing the temptation is part of the equation. But why isn’t that enough to overcome the pull to chase worldly pursuits?  

  • Read Psalm 139:23-24. How does this passage solve the problem from the last question?

  • How do we gain a pure heart?

  • Where has God done work in your life and given you a heart that resembles his heart?

  • What area of your life is He working on your heart? Where do you see a big gap between your heart and his heart?

  • In smaller groups, pray for these areas of our hearts where God is at work, where the current struggle is real.
