Come and Die

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

This week we started a new series called Death to Selfie and talked about "Come and Die". If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. What's your favorite pet you've ever had? If you didn't have a pet, what pet do you think would be cool to have one day?
  2. Does talking about death scare you? Why or why not?
  3. In the Bible in John 11:7-8, we read about Jesus telling his disciples they all should go back to Judea and his disciples don't understand why Jesus would want to go back, since the people were trying to stone him. How do you think you would have responded to Jesus in this situation?
  4. Could you respond like Thomas did in verse 16 of John chapter 11 if you were in the same scenario? Why or why not?
  5. What do you think "take up your cross" means as mentioned in the Bible in Mark 8:34-35?
  6. Do you know anyone or have you heard any stories of someone who died because they followed Jesus? Tell us about it.
  7. Are you willing to die to follow Jesus? Why or why not?
  8. What does dying to yourself mean to you?
  9. What's the hardest part of your life to "die to self"? Why? 
  10. Weekly Check In 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?)
