Discipleship Guide & Reflection Questions

  • Reading this week: Luke chapters 13 and 14
  • Questions for Reflection/Discussion:


  • Consider Jesus’ description of the Kingdom in Luke 13:18-21. What encourages you about the disparity between the apparent smallness/insignificance of the seed/leaven and their eventual widespread growth and impact? How does this contradict how we normally think about impact and significance in our world?
  • What seems small and insignificant in your own life right now? Discuss how God might use your faithfulness in that area for impact beyond what you can see now.


  • Reread Luke 13:12-33. What challenges you most in Jesus’ words here? Be specific about what convicts you most. What practical steps could you take to embody Jesus’ call in these verses?
  • Discuss how you’re progressing with your “Rule of Life.”
