Fight Club - 1 Kings 13

Fight Clubs create a context for gospel-centered discipleship - studying the Scriptures to find your sin, fight your sin and trust your Savior. Here's a snapshot of one way to take notes for Fight Club during your personal study:

[33] After this thing Jeroboam did not turn from his evil way, but made priests for the high places again from among all the people. Any who would, he ordained to be priests of the high places. [34] And this thing became sin to the house of Jeroboam, so as to cut it off and to destroy it from the face of the earth.

- 1 Kings 13:33-34 (ESV)

Main Idea: Jeroboam refuses to repent - even after God exposes his sin (1 Kings 13:4-5) and extends grace to him (1 Kings 13:6).

Sin Exposed: Are there patterns of thought, emotion and behavior that reveal that your hope and trust has been placed in something or someone other that God? Are you resisting God's call to repent - to walk away from this part of your life? Do you believe this is something you need to give up?

Sin Fought: Why are you unwilling to walk away? Are there beliefs about God that make you unwilling to walk away? What would you lose if you gave up this part of your life?

Savior Found: Is there any truth about Jesus in this story that gives you confidence that he will compensate you for your loss if you walk away from this false savior? [Example: like Jeroboam, we need priests who will communicate our needs to God and remind us of God's great love for us. Instead of grabbing onto anything and anyone to pull this off, we would do well to remember that Jesus is our great high priest - he understands what we need and graciously gives us everything we need for right here and right now.]
