Discipleship Guide & Reflection Questions

Launching Questions

  • Reread the text (Luke 14:1-24). What do you remember most from the teaching on Sunday?
  • If someone asked, “What is it that Jesus invites us to?” How would you answer that question?


  • In this parable, Jesus envisions the call to discipleship as an invitation to a banquet. How does that image change the way you normally think about obedience and cross-bearing?


  • Reread Luke 14:12-14. How does Jesus’ explicit command specifically challenge you? Be as practical in your response as possible.
  • Reconsider the objections raised in vv. 18-20 to the invitation offered. What frivolous and “legitimate” excuses do you most often give to avoid the invitation to discipleship and specific obedience in your life?
  • With whom are you most uncomfortable getting proximate? Why so? How does Jesus’ call in this teaching challenge your posture toward those “others”?
