Questions: The Renegade's Heart

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 we concluded our series Renegade 2014 and talked about The Renegade's Heart. If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. When you hear the name "Mother Teresa" what thoughts or words come to mind?
  2. Read John 15:4-5
  3. Mother Teresa said all the impact she had came because God was working through her. Why do you think "abiding in Jesus" is the key to producing "fruit" (having an impact with your life)?
  4. Vince said that people who become world changers are those who aren't full of themselves, which allows them to be full of God. If you had to create a strategy for growing in humility, what might the plan include?
  5. Read Mark 1:40-42
  6. Jesus touched people no one else would touch. So did Mother Teresa. What would help you to grow in the kind of compassion that reaches out to and touches the untouchable?
  7. We usually grow in humility by doing humbling things, and in compassion by doing compassionate things. What is a humbling and/or compassionate act of service you could do for God this week? When will you do it?
  8. Many think of Christians as being judgmental or holier than thou. What do you think might happen if Christians become known for humility and compassion?
  9. Accountability Question:  Who are you inviting to serve with you?
  10. 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?)
