Huddle / Week Of 04.14.19
Huddle time is an opportunity for you to connect to each other and grow in faith. The below questions are just a resource for you to use or start from. Don’t feel like you have to use them all or rush through good discussion.
Would you consider yourself a confident person?
How many conversations have you had about your faith in the past year?
Read Matthew 10
How does Matthew 10 give you confidence to share your faith?
Rewatch the video shown in the service: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmFPS0f-kzs
Jesus said the greatest person in God’s Kingdom was the weakest. (Matthew 19:30, Luke 9:48, Matthew 18:4)
What do you think an “Upside down Kingdom” means?
Matt talked about how he loved show and tell. How can you “show and tell” Jesus to others even if they don’t want what you have to offer?
What are the fears you need to overcome to have faith conversations with people?
If someone accused you of being a hypocrite while you were talking about God with them, what would you say?
How does the fact that God knows you deeply, help you to share your faith?
Sometimes you have a fear because you are placing your identity in something or someone. Who or what does your identity come from? Yourself? Your job? People’s approval? Your spouse? How does this keep us from talking about Jesus?
Share a story where you clearly saw God working in your life. Would you consider sharing this story with people you know who are far from God?
PRAYER: This new series is really diving into the common struggles in ALL of our lives: Relationships, Addictions, and Stress. Pray for those in our city and those in your life who are affected by these three topics and opportunities to invite them.
