Whose You Are, Part 4
Turn on any TV, click on any post, subscribe to any feed and you’ll be bombarded with all that’s going on in the world. At times it can be overwhelming, mentally challenging, even crippling. In the midst of all the chaos is Jesus. The One who holds all things in His hands brings peace and has ultimate victory. It’s time to get our eyes back on Him. It’s time to remember who He is. It’s time to make sure we draw close to Him. In this two-part series, we’ll do just that, rise above the chaos and focus back on Jesus!Fill-in Notes
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 the discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.
- John 15:11 explains that true joy comes from Christ. The result of this joy is a steady, levelheadedness regardless of our circumstances and the circumstances around us. Have there been times where you’ve reacted to circumstances in your flesh that have wrecked you? On the flip side, have there been times you’ve been so grounded in your faith that it’s gotten you through those trials? Please share with your group.
- How can we prepare ourselves today to walk joyfully through our circumstances—whether it’s the mountaintop or the valley?
- Read John 15:13. Rarely will we have a situation to die for someone, however, there are ways to demonstrate the same type of sacrificial love that Christ has shown us. What does that type of sacrificial love look like as we look to love and minister to those around us?
- Jesus is our Lord, our Master, and creator (John 1:3). Yet in John 15:14, Jesus calls us his friend and asks us to obey Him as a result of our reciprocated love. Is that motivation for your obedience to Him? What are other motivating factors for you?
- How might your life, and those around you change, if you sought joy through Jesus alone? What are some practical ways you can do this? Discuss how your group can help you.
- How specifically has God spoken to you through this series? What is he asking you to do?
