Ephesians - Elevating Others

Main Point: The willingness to ask and the humility to act.

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
     
  • What are some of your family’s house rules?
     
  • Were there any family rules from when you were a kid that you were adamant that you would either keep or never do?

Read: Ephesians 5:21-28, 5:33-6:9.

  • What is the difference to you between surrender and submit?
     
  • Wives are called to submit, and husbands are called to love. Is there a difference in the instructions they are given? Why or why not?
     
  • Do you think these instructions should be different in our modern culture? Why or why not?
     
  • For children living at home, how you do submit to your parents? For parents, how do you submit to your children?
     
  • In regards to slave and master, in what area do you struggle to see the person behind the role and not dehumanize them?
     
  • We are all called to submit to one another, regardless of relationship. Who do you need to get better at submitting to?
     
  • What will it take to incorporate the house rule of “the willingness to ask and the humility to act?”

Prayer: Pray for humility in order to properly submit to others.
