Digging Deeper
A deeper study for individuals and small groups

For this study I would like you to check out the following website with your group. https://www.gotquestions.org/questions_God.html

here is the QR code:

Select the link:
“Does God exist?” or “Is there an argument for the existence of God?”

The group leader might want to check these two links out in advance to decide which one you want to choose for your group.

Walk through the study and discussion provided.

Read the scriptures that are provided and talk about each step of the argument presented.
1. What do you think about what is being said?
2. Is this a convincing argument for you?
3. If not, why do you choose to believe that there is a God?
4. Or what would you need to convince you that God is real?

Take time to share and discuss this topic as the Lord leads you.

Take time to pray for friends, family and neighbors whom you know are curious about God and might benefit from you taking to them.

Pray for wisdom to know how to approach these conversations.
Pray for the people, by name, who are on your heart to talk to about God.
