Questions: Jesus, Meet Jesus

We provide questions each week based on the theme of our service for our Micro Groups to use. If you're not in a Verve Micro Group, feel free to use them on your own.

This week our series was Bigger: From Selfie to Selfless and our message was "Jesus, Meet Jesus." If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. When you think of the word "servant" who comes to mind, and why?
  2. Read Titus 3:1-14
  3. We are saved not by the good we do, but because of God's mercy and grace towards us (verses 4-7). We are not saved by being good, but we are saved to do good (verse 8). We are to devote ourselves "to doing what is good." What changes would need to happen in your life for you to be able to say that you're truly devoted to doing good?
  4. In what ways would your life look different if you were truly devoted to doing good?
  5. 2 Corinthians 5:20 says, "We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us." When we serve others, we get to be Jesus to them. In what ways does that motivate you to do good and serve?
  6. Who could you show Jesus to by your life this week? Will you do it? When?
  7. Read Matthew 25:31-46
  8. When we serve others (especially those in need, who can't serve themselves) in some sense they get to be Jesus to us. In what ways does that motivate you to do good and serve?
  9. What person (or group of people) in need could you serve this week? Will you do it? When?
  10. Accountability Question:   Who are you inviting to serve with you? 
  11. Prayer Question:  What could we be praying for you this week? (Is this there something good we could celebrate with you, or a challenge you need God's help with?)
