-If Nothing Else... Serve-

ICEBREAKER:

What message does our culture communicate regarding the most important things to pursue in life?

DISCUSSION:

1. Read Mark 10:35-45 and Mark 9:33-35

  • How do you suppose serving makes you great?

2. Read John 13:3-5, 12-17

  • How do you suppose you’ll be blessed if you serve like Jesus served?
  • In what situations is it easy for you to serve?
  • In what situations is it difficult for you to serve?

3. Read Matthew 4:19-22

  • The disciples left ‘at once’ and ‘immediately’ followed Jesus. Why is it important not to hesitate when you feel called to serve?

4. Read John 14:15, Luke 11:28; I Timothy 4:7-8

  • Why is obedience so important in the Christian walk?
  • Why do we have to discipline (train) ourselves to be godly and what does that look like?

5. Read I Peter 4:10; Matthew 10:42; Acts 20:35

  • Speaking to the church, Peter says we should use our gifts to serve others. What are your gifts and in what ways are you serving your church family?
  • Prayerfully consider how you might serve your church body and discuss options with your small group.

APPLICATION:

Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 = never; 10 = always) in these two critical areas:

  • How often do I choose obedience over convenience?

  • How often do I look for opportunities to serve?

What are some ways you might improve in these two areas?
