A Better Way to Love
“If we say we love God, but we don’t love our neighbor…maybe we don’t really love God”. We’re beginning a new series called A Better Way to Love. Pastor Clay examines the Bible’s definition of love and teaches how to love the seemingly “unloveable.”

VERSES // Luke 6:27-35, 1 John 4:19-20, Exodus 22:26-27, 2 Thessalonians 3, Luke 10:29, Genesis 12:3, Genesis 27:29, Romans 12, Proverbs 22, Jeremiah 36:22, Ephesians 4:29, Acts 7, Matthew 6, Romans 5:8

Discussion Questions:
1. Think about a time when you went through pain. While keeping their names anonymous, what did people do/say that was helpful to you? What did they say/do that was hurtful?
2. In your opinion, why do many people struggle to help others when they are grieving?
3. Name someone in your life who is a good listener. What do they do that makes them a good listener?
4. What are specific, helpful ways to show love to someone who is going through a hard time?
5. Take time to pray—as a group—for people you know who are hurting. Then, put together a plan of action to minister to them this week.

4. Why do you think God wants us to handle conflict well? 
5. Is conflict resolution the same as reconciliation with a person? Why or why not?

Discussion Questions:
1. On the cross, Jesus is fully God and fully man. What does Jesus’ thirst reveal about his true humanity, and why is that important? 
2. Jesus obeyed and fulfilled Scripture. What role should obeying Scripture play in our daily walk with Jesus? 
3. Jesus often spoke of His ability to quench the thirst of those who are thirsty (See John 4:14; 6:35; 7:37). What is Jesus talking about when he says we “thirst”? What are modern-day examples of people “thirsting for God”?
4. In what way has focusing on Jesus’ death on the cross helped you draw closer to God? 
5. Today, we prayed for people who do not follow Jesus to be saved and to come to know him. Who did you pray for today, and what might you do this week to help that person take the next step toward Jesus?

Discussion Questions:
1. On the cross, Jesus is fully God and fully man. What does Jesus’ thirst reveal about his true humanity, and why is that important?
2. Jesus obeyed and fulfilled Scripture. What role should obeying Scripture play in our daily walk with Jesus?
3. Jesus often spoke of His ability to quench the thirst of those who are thirsty (See John 4:14; 6:35; 7:37). What is Jesus talking about when he says we “thirst”? What are modern-day examples of people “thirsting for God”?
4. In what way has focusing on Jesus’ death on the cross helped you draw closer to God?
5. Today, we prayed for people who do not follow Jesus to be saved and to come to know him. Who did you pray for today, and what might you do this week to help that person take the next step toward Jesus?

Happy Palm Sunday, Johnson Ferry. We're kicking off Holy Week by welcoming special guest Dr. Albert Mohler as we continue on our journey to Easter. This week, we look at Jesus' famous statement, "It is finished." What did Jesus mean by saying this, and what does this statement mean for us today?

3. Jesus says that the Father prunes His vines. Why does God do this, and what are examples of this in your life?
4. We are endeavoring to create a culture of disciple-making in 2024. Why do you think so many disciples never really become disciple-makers?

Johnson Ferry January 14, 2024 2:59 pm

Why aren’t most of us making disciples even though Jesus told us to? In week 3 of our Things That Stick series, Pastor Clay evaluates our everyday lives and turns to scripture to show us how to practically live out and obey The Great Commission.

Johnson Ferry January 21, 2024 2:32 pm

"A disciple is one who has found Jesus, is following the ways of Jesus, and is leading others to do the same, but how does this apply to parents?" As we enter into week 4 of our Things That Stick series, Pastor Clay evaluates how our children are being discipled by the world and compares this concept to how children should be discipled based on scripture.

VERSES // Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Deuteronomy 4:4-6, Deuteronomy 4:4-9, Psalm 78:4, Acts 9:22, Acts 18:26, Acts 22:4, Acts 24:14, Acts 22, Romans 12:1, Hebrews 10:24-25, 1 Corinthians 12:4-7, 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, Colossians 3:20, Matthew 28:18-20

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS //
1. What are your favorite smells of the Christmas season and why? 
2. What is the context of the hymn/creed that Paul shares in Philippians 2:5-11? Why is he sharing this hymn with them as it relates to how they should treat one another? 
3. Jesus is both fully God and fully man. Do you think we have a tendency to emphasize one over the other? Why or why not? 
4. We gave 5 reasons why the deity of Christ matters. Which of the five seems most significant to you right now? Feel free to discuss additional reasons why this doctrine matters. 
5. Take time (as a group) to pray for the lost, for whom you want to discover truth, belonging, and purpose.
