Growing in Knowledge

  • Who have been your most significant examples in life? Why are these the people you’ve most imitated?
  • Read Philippians 2:5-11. Who does Jesus serve? In what ways does Jesus embody what it means to be truly human? Why does God give Jesus the name “Lord”?

Feeling Life Deeply

  • Does the fact that Jesus suffered so much while on earth, help you in your suffering? Why or why not?
  • How do you think your approach to others and Jesus’s approach to others differ most?

Living with Courage

  • What is the most Christlike thing anyone has ever done for you? What would it look like for you to embrace Christlikeness at your job? With your family? Among your friends? Give practical examples.
