Wai‘alae Baptist Church | Sunday, May 3, 2020

We believe our church should be a reflection of the love and glory of God that is given to us from God through faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who is our Savior and Lord, and by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who unites as one body in Christ and empowers us to obey God and serve others.

Please connect with us by calling us at 732-5561, emailing us info@waialaebaptist.com, or at www.waialaebaptist.org.

Discussion Questions

Unconditional Faith, Sacrificial Love

Ruth 1


Does your faith in God grow stronger when you are being blessed by God or when life is hard? Why do you think that is?


Have you ever had a situation in life that did not turn out the way you wanted but as a result your faith in God grew? What was the situation and why do you think you responded that way?


Why does some people’s faith weaken when things are going well?


How can we make sure our faith is strong whether we are in the midst of blessing or struggles?


Who do you love enough that you would be willing to give up everything for?
