Session 2: Is There a God?

Watch the video above then discuss as a group:

1. How would you describe “Wind” or the concept of “Love” scientifically to a 4 year old child?

2. Read Romans 1:19-20. What does this passage say about experiencing God and His existence?

19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 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.

3. What are things you can see around us that point to God and His existence?

Watch the video above then discuss as a group:

4. What role, if any, did God play in your family when you were growing up? How does your upbringing impact your beliefs now?

5. Is there something in your own life that points to God and His existence?

6. Read Hebrews 11:13. How does knowing that there is a higher power, God, and His creation give you comfort and help you understand this issue?

13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.

Most of us “hope there’s something else out there.” And the thoughts people have about God are as diverse as the people who’ve thought them. Most have attributed their life to some form of god or Supreme Being. As we saw and discussed, there is ample evidence supporting this. Yet, it seems, for us to be confident that there is a God, he/she/it must “reveal himself to us in a way that makes sense.”

Psalm 19:1 states, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” In other words, if there is a God, all people have experienced him, though they might not have known it or attributed that experience to God. This week, keep an open mind and consider how the creation around you might speak of God and his plans.
