Life Group Questions: Applying the Teaching to Our Life

  1. Name a time recently at work, home or play when you needed to re-group. What were the circumstances?
  2. What was the best sense of community you ever had (high school friends, college dorm, sports team, military, job, close family, Life Group, small church, etc.)? What was so great about it?
  3. Read Mark 3:13-14. Does it make a difference that the text says he called them “that they might be with him” instead of “that he might be with them”? Now read John 11:54 and Matthew 26:36-46.  Isn’t it fascinating how much Jesus seemed to need and want community? What does that teach you about our need for community?
  4. Read Mark 3:14 again. If you could physically “be with” Jesus and do something together, what would you most like to do?
  5. Can you learn to love without actually loving someone? Why or why not?
  6. Jesus calls us each to take the next step with him. Have you taken the Next Step Survey? If not, you can access it at our website under the “Next Steps” tab at the top of the home page.
  7. Pray for each other in your group, asking God to fill each of you with His Holy Spirit to empower you to witness, love and serve.

Acts 1 & 2

Why Re-Group?

        Because Jesus calls us to community

                Through His command

                Through His example

        Because we are made for community

                We need each other

                Isolation is a killer

        Because the Spirit works in community

            Through filling us with power

                    Power to witness

                   Power to love

                   Power to serve

         Through prayer

                   Connects us to God

                   Connects us to each other

        Through the Word

                  As we listen to the Word

                  As we discuss the Word

                  As we apply the Word
