Life Group Questions (Matthew 14:22-33)
1. How did the Holy Spirit speak to you through the sermon?
2. In Ephesians 3:20 we read that God wants to do immeasurably more than we can ask for or imagine according to His power. Do you see this happening in your life? Why or why not?
3. Do you believe God wants us to live an extraordinary and miraculous life through His power? If so how does that look like in everyday life?
4. In Matthew 14 Jesus invited Peter to participate in the miraculous. Read Matthew 14:22-28. What separated Peter from all of the other 11 disciples? Why did Peter ask Jesus to walk on water? How is that relevant to our opportunities to walking in the miraculous?
5. We read in Matthew 14:28 that Peter not only believed God could call him to do the miraculous but Peter waited for Christ to call. He did not act without the call of God. How do you discern the call of God in your life to do the miraculous?
6. Read Matthew 14:29. What did Peter have to do in order to walk miraculously on water? Why is this so crucial in our everyday lives?
7. Are you waiting for God to do the miracle for you or are you willing to get out of the boat and risk failure to trust in God to do the miraculous?
8. Read Matthew 14:30-33. Why did Jesus not calm the storm right away? And why did Peter begin to sink? How is this relevant in your walk with Christ?
9. Spend some time praying asking God to reveal to you how He wants you to step out of your “boat”/comfort zones and walk in the miraculous. Talk to each other about it and see if the body of Christ is confirming this call.
