A study based on the sermon: Are You On The Inheritance List?
Start off by reading Matthew 5:1-12, then re-read verse 5
1 – What is meek and what isn’t?
2 – How would taking the first two beatitudes seriously lead us to be “meek”
3 – Can you be meek and angry at the same time? (James 1:19-21) Meek and have strong convictions? (Galatians 2:11-14)
4 – What does “meekness” look like: -In business… -In school… -In our church… -In your neighbourhood…
5 – How does someone become meek? How can God change you in the following behaviours and attitudes? (Matthew 11:28-30)
6 – Where do we learn the attitudes listed on the left and what is our motivation for living out the attitudes on the right?
7 – From the world’s point of view, why is it surprising that the meek will inherit the earth?

These questions are based on the first 13 verses of Acts 2
- There are 7 feasts or festivals that the Lord instituted (cf. Leviticus 23):
- what are they;
- when roughly do they fall;
- what was the original purpose of each one and what were, or will be, the eventual fulfilments for each;
- which have yet to be fulfilled?
- What was the effect of God pouring out His Spirit?
- Why don’t we see God doing this today?
- What were the believers doing before the Holy Spirit came (cf. Acts 1:14)
