FIRE IN MY BONES Part 1: It Starts with a Call
Jeremiah 1:4-10, Hebrews 12:25-29
Theme: As Jeremiah was called to be a prophet of burning hope, today’s Christians are called to be people who will go where God sends and speak His words
1. What’s one thing that stood out to you from the scriptures or message?
2. Read Jeremiah 1:4-10. What strikes you about the passage?
3. While Jeremiah’s unique call to be a prophet is given in this passage not all are called or gifted to be prophets. What does 1:5 tell us about God’s unique calling on our lives?
4. When Jeremiah spoke difficult truth, he faced persecution and rejection. What are some truths that are difficult to speak today? How can this passage encourage believers to “speak the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15)?
5. What is Jeremiah’s excuse to speaking for God in 1:6? What are other excuses that people give for not living for God? How does God’s promise in 1:8 provide help?
6. Read Hebrews 12:25-29. Ask God to remind you of where he is calling you to obey. Ask him to show you where you are refusing to listen. Ask Him for the burning hope to obey no matter way.
7. What is God calling you to pray about?
