Going deeper questions (SMall Group)
- What stood out to you about this message and why?
- What did Moses mean by wanting all to prophesy? How does this relate to Ephesians 4:9-16?
- What does it mean to be led by the Spirit? How was Jesus “led” when He is fully God, without sin?
Does the Holy Spirit have a voice? What are we doing to prepare ourselves to say YES! to God today?
