The Jesus You Never Knew: Jesus & a Rich Powerful Impressive Dude

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 The Jesus You Never Knew and talked about Jesus & a Rich Powerful Impressive Dude.
  1. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
  2. What's one thing you are truly devoted to?
  3. Mark 10:21 in the New Testament of the Bible says, "And Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, "You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me."" Could you sell all that you have to follow Jesus? Why or why not?
  4. It's easy to compare ourselves to others and think we aren't as bad. How do you justify you're not as bad as others by comparison? 
  5. What one area in your life is most tempting to hold back from God? Why?
  6. Do you know what's preventing you from truly experiencing God?
  7. If you're not a Christian yet, what's holding you back from saying yes to Jesus? If you are a Christian, is there something you're holding onto that's preventing you from full devotion to Jesus?
  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?)
