It All Comes Down to This
When Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment was, He had many to choose from. But with God, there will only ever be one that has to claim that top spot. And because Jesus knew It All Comes Down to This, He began to answer their question this way: “You shall love the Lord your God…”Fill-in Notes
Take Away / Application
A very personal God desires for us to put Him first by passionately loving Him. He then wants us to practically put that love into action by loving others.
Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your group or branch off with additional questions as discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.
- What have you learned from your time in the Bible this week? How is it impacting your daily life?
- Why do people view God as impersonal, far off, or uninvolved?
- Read Psalm 139:1–18 and see how personal God is. Discuss what verses stick out to you in this passage and why.
- If you look at your week, what or who gets most of your time? How can you more passionately love God throughout your upcoming week? What needs to change to love Him more? Does something need to go away, does something need to be added?
- Discuss the statement, “Show me what you love and I’ll show you what you believe.”
- Loving God for who He is rather than what He can do, many times, is revealed in our prayer life. How is your prayer life? Are you spending quality time in prayer with the Lord?
- When love for God is preeminent, it’s unaffected by the good and bad circumstances in our lives. What can we do to keep our love for God preeminent when the circumstances of life hit?
- Over the next month, as a group, individual, or family, how can you practically carry out Matthew 22:39?
Prayer or Action Step
Lord, help me to love you more!
