Things That Make You Go Hmmm: The Hole In Your Heart

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 continued the series called Things That Make You Go Hmmm and talked about The Hole In Your HeartIf you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. What would your perfect day look like?
  2. This week at Verve we talked about the sense we have that there is something more to life. Do you remember when you first started wondering if maybe you were missing something? When you have felt that way, what did you do about it?
  3. Read Ecclesiastes 3:11 in the Old Testament of the Bible.
    • What do you think it means that God "put eternity in our hearts"?
    • Why do you think God put eternity in our hearts?
    • What does it make you think about God?
  4. How do you currently try to fill the hole inside of you when you feel empty?
  5. This week we heard stories of people - some "got" Jesus right away and decided to believe in and follow Him. Some took awhile, but eventually gave their lives to Jesus. Others were never willing to leave what they have to walk away from to follow Jesus.
    • What do you think makes it difficult to make the decision to put your faith in and follow Jesus?
    • Which of those three "types" best describes you? The first time you heard about Jesus, did you believe and accept Him right away? Or did you need a lot of time to process and think through everything? Or are you still not convinced He will fill the void inside of you?
  6. If you have met Jesus and put your faith in Him, the rest of your life is about helping others to meet and believe in Jesus.
    • How are you doing with that?
    • Who has God put in your life who, this week, you could you share your faith with or invite to Verve?
  7. 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?)
