Liking the Ones You Love: God Likes You 5/31/2020

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 had an online service in the Liking the Ones You Love series.
  1. What is a favorite item you've bought this year?
  2. John 3:16 in the New Testament of the Bible says, "For God so loved the world..." Do you feel like you are included as part of the world in that verse? Do you really think God loves you? Why or why not?
  3. John 15:15 says, "I have called you friends." How does it make you feel that Jesus considers you His friend?
  4. Why do you think Jesus chose to spend His time with people who no one else wanted to be around?
  5. People don't want to be around someone they think doesn't like them. What is it about you that makes you wonder if maybe God wouldn't want to be around you?
  6. How might it change your life - how you thought, how you acted - if you really believed God likes you?
  7. What can you do to make others feel the love (and like) of Jesus through you?
  8. At this moment, do you feel like you're more at a place where you need to know Jesus more, or make Him known? 
    • Why?
    • What's one step you can take this week to make that happen?
  9. 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?)
