    WHISPER #4 | Pain | May 22, 2022Bob Schwahn | Lead Pastor
    1) I am with you in your pain…The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all... Psalm 34:18-19 (NIV)
    C.S. Lewis – The Problem of PainWe can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.
    2) I understand your pain…During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered… Hebrews 5:7-8 (NIV)
    3) I will redeem your pain…Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NIV)
    C.S. Lewis - Mere ChristianityAim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.
    4) Praise me in your pain…At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.” In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing. Job 1:20-22 (NIV)
    Listen to my words, Lord; consider my sighing. Psalm 5:1 (NIV)
    Reflection Questions:1) What have been some of the most challenging seasons of pain in your life? 2) How have seasons of pain and darkness impacted your relationship with God? Positively and/or Negatively?3) Were you able to hear God’s whispers in those seasons? Explain.4) How has God used pain to speak to you and shape your life?5) What are some lies that we believe in the midst of our pain that can make the pain even more challenging? What truths from God do we need lean on in the midst of our pain?6) How does knowing that Jesus lived a life of pain and suffering change the way we view our own suffering?7) Read 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 and the C.S. Lewis quote…

Explain8) What are some tangible ways we can focus on Jesus and eternity and not just our circumstances in the midst of pain?

    So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. Ephesians 4:11-16 (NIV) 
    Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? 1 Corinthians 3:16 (NIV)
     
    Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. James 5:16 (NIV)
     
    Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. Proverbs 27:6 (NIV) 
    But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort. 1 Corinthians 14:3 (NIV)
     
    The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. 1 Corinthians 2:10B-12 (NIV)
     
    Reflection Questions:
    Read Ephesians 4:11-16 
    1) How have you seen God speak through another person into your life? How has God used you to speak into the life of another person?
     
    2) Who are people in your life that you love and trust to be able to speak the truth in love? Who are those you can share your hidden self with? What about their life makes you trust them?
     
    3) What does it take to develop those kind of “truth in love” relationships? Do you have a regular rhythm of meeting with people who you talk about what God is speaking to them about? 
     
    4) Why is it important to bring our hidden self (hopes, dreams, struggles, fears, sin, etc.) into the open with other people? What is the cost of failing to engage with people around our hidden self?
     
    5) Have you had a time where someone was able to speak to an issue in your life and they did it really well? Or really poorly? What made it positive or negative?
     
    6) Why is it important and helpful to give people permission to speak into your life (i.e. inviting feedback)?

    1 Kings 19:11-13 (NIV)
    The LORD said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” 
    1) Why does God whisper?
     
    Oswald Chambers:
    “The checks of the Spirit come in the most extraordinarily gentle ways, and if you are not sensitive enough to detect His voice you will quench it, and your personal spiritual life will be impaired. His checks always come as a still small voice…”
     
    2) What makes God’s whispers hard to hear?
     
    2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (NIV)
    The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 
    3) How do we respond to whispers?
     
    Hebrews 3:15; 4:7; Psalm 95:7-8 (NIV)
    “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.” 
     
    Reflection Questions:
    1) Describe a time when you had trouble hearing someone (poor sound quality at an event, loud conversation over lunch, soft spoken co-worker in a meeting, etc.). How do you feel when you can’t hear someone well? 
    2) How well would you say you hear the voice of God? Why do you 
    think that is?
     
    3) What things in our life can make it difficult to hear God’s voice?
     
    4) When have you heard the voice of God most clearly in your life?  
     
    5) What sorts of lies keep us from hearing God’s voice? What have those lies been in your life?
     
    6) What are some unique ways that God spoke to people in the Bible? What are some unique ways God has communicated with you? How did that experience affect your relationship with God?
     
    7) How does God speak to us through engaging the Bible? How have you learned to hear God’s voice from the Bible? What does that process look like for you?

    ENOUGH | Jesus is Enough |  April 17, 2022
    Brian Van Eps | Teaching Pastor
     
    John 11:25 (NIV)
    Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die..." 
    John 11:43-44 (NIV)
    When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”  
    Jesus is enough!
