Growing in knowledge
- Jesus’ death and resurrection is presented as certain and pre-ordained in v30-32. Why do you think we resist the idea that God ordains salvation in this way?
- Discuss why Jesus gets so strong on sin in v42-48 in light of the context of this passage and our mission.
Feeling life deeply
- Do you fear that if you live as a servant you might be marginalized, not be “important” or not get ahead etc.?
- Are you afraid to live for his glory, serving others and not being about your own greatness? Does this mean we cannot succeed in anything?
Living with courage
- In what ways have you coddled your sin, rather than repenting and forsaking it?
