1. If you could not hear this week’s sermon, consider going to the church website and listening to it. What main ideas did you gain from the message? Do you have any questions?

3. Have you ever sensed that the Lord wanted you to go somewhere? Has He ever directed you to go on a mission trip, youth trip or some other type of venture? Share about a time God clearly called you to something and the outcome.

5. What does it mean that Deborah was a prophetess? Are you surprised that there were women prophetesses in the Old Testament (cf. Exodus 15:20; 2 Kings 22:14; Isaiah 8:3; Nehemiah 6:14)? Did the Lord desire or approve of women serving in this manner? Explain.

6. Deborah is said to be one of Israel’s judges in the book of Judges. Do you think her role was the perfect plan of God or simply a consequence of weak male leadership in Israel? Do you believe women should be in positions of leadership? Explain your thoughts?
