May 21, 2017 at 1:11 pm Categories: News, Sermons


  1. Who bullied you when you were a kid?
  2. It sounds reasonable to stay neutral and stay out of situations where someone is being bullied. But South African Bishop Desmond Tutu once said that “Neutrality is of little help to anyone. If an elephant is standing on the tail of a mouse, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” Did anyone ever step in to help you?
  3. What advice would you give to a kid a school or your own child who is being bullied?
  4. Have you ever experienced cyber bullying? How did you handle it?
  5. Share a story of when God dealt with one of your Sennacherib moments on your journey of faith.
  6. Do you have a Sennacherib knocking at your city gates in these days? How might this message help you deal with him?
  7. What do you think “God’s invitation” is for you in what you are facing at this time?
  8. Did you have an ‘aha’ moment in this sermon? Share it with the group.
  9. What was the most important ‘take away’ for you from this message?
  10. What might be one small noticeable change you might make in your Christian walk in light of what you learned today?
