Title: Wanted: A Heart Broken Before God
Text: Psalm 51:1-19

Revival begins with holiness. God set our hearts on fire for Him by first purifying our hearts and bringing us to a place of brokenness and repentance.  

General Questions:

  1. Do you consider yourself as someone who is quick to recognise and acknowledge sins in your life? Why do you think so? 

  2. What is usually your first response when you are confronted with your sins? Do you make excuses for yourself and blame other people and circumstances like Saul, or do you take responsibility for your sins like David? What are reasons that we may respond like Saul instead of David?

Perspective Questions:

  1. When we seek God’s forgiveness, we know that we are cleansed by God and our relationship with God is restored. However, there are times when we do not feel like turning back to God. What are some reasons that may hinder a believer from turning to God? 

  2. “God turns our scars into stars, our setbacks into comebacks, our misery into ministry, our test into testimony.” Does this quote resonate with you? When we are broken before God, we are not condemned but we receive God grace and restoration. What are the tell-tale signs of someone who feel condemned, instead of being restored by God? Why do you think it is important to seek renewal?

Application Questions:

  1. What are the ways that you can apply the sermon to experience the revival in your spiritual life? What are the specific areas that God is convicting you to turn away and come back to Him? What are the spiritual habits or routines that you practise to keep you sensitive to sin and root it out in your life?

With revival comes a fervent longing to live for God and a deep concern for the souls of others. In this 7-part series, discover how we can allow God to search, purify, and ignite our hearts.
