1. Can you think of a time when you felt useless or helpless? Describe this time. How did you react to this helplessness?
2. Read Luke 11:14-28.
3. We need authority in this life and have been given authority. Why?
a. People are in bondage. What are people in bondage to? What are the symptoms of bondage? How might we discern if someone is ill or in bondage? How is bondage broken?
b. Because Christ came to set captives free. What are some examples you can think of where captives have been set free by Christ?
c. Because this same authority must be exercised on our part. Where in Scripture do we see believers exercising authority? Have you seen it in your lifetime?
d. This authority must be exercised with wisdom, under God’s instruction. What did Pastor Bill mean by this?
4. Where do you need to see the power of Christ in your life/your family’s life?
