Spiritual Awakening

Ephesians 5:7-14 | Sermon Resources | 25 September 2022


In the sermon this week Pastor Billy pays particular attention to Paul’s words in Ephesians 5:14 where he calls his readers to wake up. Pastor Billy will examine 4 components of spiritual awakening.

Discussion Questions

  1. How would you define a “spiritual awakening”?  What is it?  What is it not?
  2. Have you ever experienced a season of being particularly spiritually alive?  How did that come about? What was the experience like?
  3. How is a deeper understanding of our own darkness a necessary part of becoming spiritually awake?
  4. What do you have a harder time getting settled in your heart: (1) that you once were  darkness, or that (2) you are now light?
  5. How would you respond to someone who says that walking as children of light (v.8) is restrictive and dehumanizing?
  6. What does it mean to expose the works of darkness (v.11)?  How might we do this today? 
  7. In what area do you most need to wake you up: (1) the reality of darkness (2) the work of God in our lives (3) the calling we have received (4) the power of God? 
  8. What might this look like for you to wake up in this area?  What might begin to happen as a result?
  9. What is one thing you will do as a result of studying this passage?
