A Jesus Worth Following

HEAR
1.  After hearing the message, spend some time in your group sharing what you recall from it. What struck you, and what questions did it leave you with?

2.  Read any section from the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7)
What word, phrase, or verse stands out to you and why?

TALK
3.  Discuss the entire nine week series. What did you learn about God? What did you learn about yourself? Which teaching was the most challenging for you and why?

4.  After this week’s teaching, do you feel as if “the nones and dones” (people who are religiously unaffiliated) truly understand who Jesus is? How are they mis-informed? In what ways has the church contributed to a false understanding of Jesus?

5.  If people find church to be too “political, judgmental, arrogant, anti-intellectual, and hypocritical”, then how can we point to the Jesus who is worth following? How does the Sermon on the Mount speak specifically to these concerns?

LIVE
5.  Do you know any “nones and dones” in your life? What might it look like to discuss their views of God, religion, and church with them? Would you be up for an open conversation if they were?

6.  How should our church practices be focused to intentionally reach new people with the Jesus of the Gospels?  How could we do this better as a church? What do we already do well?

PRAY
Jesus, thank your for your teaching. May we follow you faithfully as our Lord, Teacher, and Savior. And may our lives point faithfully to you so that others will follow you. Amen.
