Group Discussion & Life Challenge
Use these notes as discussion prompts for your group, or in your personal time with God.
Get to know each other. Connect, warm up to each other, fellowship.
Carry each other’s burdens. Share life’s challenges and practice Soul Care. Pray together.
Dive into God’s Word. Use these discussion questions. Learn from each other’s insight
- Discuss the scene as Jesus enters the Temple and begins flipping tables. How does that make you feel about Jesus?
- What about this is hard to digest as you think about who Jesus is? On the other hand, why might this make sense?
- How do you think others perceive Christians and how Christians should respond to injustice?
- What verses are helpful for you to see what was really going on here? (reference: 1 Peter 4:17, 1 Corinthians 15:19, Luke 12:53, Mark 7:9)
- Jesus did not get a fig when He wanted, and He did not get a people who were ready for worship. What does it look like for you this week as you relate to others and Jesus in those moments when things don’t go the way you planned?
Does anyone need clarity on something? Are there any big God questions you are wrestling with?
Celebrate life’s successes and God’s provision. Worship God’s presence. Time to brag about God.
Through the Bible in one Year
Join us in reading through the entire Bible in one year. Each day of this plan guides you through passages from both the Old and New Testaments, allowing you to see connections between the history of our faith, and the fulfillment of God’s redemptive plan. Readings average four chapters in length, so it is posible to do. When you use the YouVersion Bible App, you can even have the app read the Bible text to you – very useful when you are in the car or otherwise occupied with your hand.
All you need to do is click the link to the Bible Plan, which should lead you straight to the Bible app. Your two options are now (1) to read the plan on your own, one day at the time. Or (2) you can make it more fun and rewarding, by sharing the plan with one or more friends, and then even “Talk about it”.
