Things That Make You Go Hmmm: The Game Changer

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 concluded the series called Things That Make You Go Hmmm and talked about The Game ChangerIf you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. Other than Jesus, who is someone you'd say has had a major impact on the history of our world?
  2. This week we saw how Jesus has been an absolutely game changer in our world; how has Jesus been a game changer in your life?
  3. Read James 2:14-26
  4. So often for so many, Christianity is viewed as believing in Jesus so you can go to Heaven instead of a relationship with God (through Jesus that changes you and empowers you to live the life God has for you.
    • Why do you think it's so easy for people to focus on believing in Jesus and ignore the life change that should happen?
    • Why do you think it's so easy for people to focus on believing in Jesus and ignore living the life God wants you to live?
  5. James 2:26 says, "faith without actions is dead."
    • What do you think that means?
    • How can a person put their faith "into action"?
    • What could you do to better put your faith into action this week?
  6. In Matthew 6:10, Jesus taught us to pray, "your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."
    • What do you think Jesus meant when he said this?
    • Vince talked about this verse and how God doesn't just want to get us into Heaven, but wants to get Heaven into us, and to empower us to be game changers who bring Heaven to earth. How could you be more a part of bringing Heaven to earth?
  7. What area of your life do you need to surrender and allow God to be The Game Changer?
  8. Weekly Check In Question:  What could we be praying for you this week? (Is there something good we could celebrate with you, or a challenge you need God's help with?)
