When Pigs Mean More Than People: God Solve My Problems But Save My Pigs! (Mark 5:1-20)

  1. Pastor Dan talked about comfort being one of our greatest priorities in life. Do you agree? How can the pursuit of comfort affected our walk with God?
  2. It seems ironic that the pursuit of comfort keeps us from experiencing the peace of God. Read Philippians 4:7 and Romans 16:20. What do these passages say about the peace of God and how have you experienced this peace in your life?
  3. “We want God to solve our problems but save our pigs.” How does this statement relate to the story of Jesus and the demon possessed man.
  4. Read Ephesians 2:14-18. If Jesus is the source of our peace, how do we experience and REALLY live in that peace?
