    The Plain Truth About God
    Questions for Growth Groups
    God’s word says, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Romans 1:20. Imagine yourself talking to someone who does not believe in God. How could you use examples from “what has been made” to talk with them about God’s power and divine nature? Based on this, how might you explain to someone why there is really no excuse for not knowing that God exists?
    In Romans 1:22 we read, 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles. Why do you think many people turn to worshiping created things, rather than The Creator? Is it easier to worship created things, than God?
    In Ephesians chapter 2 we read: 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. How could what Paul shared about Christians in verses three and four help us witness to people?
    Peter testified before the crowd in Jerusalem that Jesus was, “handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross.” How would you explain to someone why God’s plan was to hand over His Son to those who would crucify Him?
