"A matter of life & death..." - Luke 9:18-27

Preacher Rev. John Toller
Scripture

‘Who is this?’ (vv18-22)
➢ When have you encountered wrong, or limited, understandings of
Jesus? How has your own understanding developed over time?
➢ Why does it matter so much to have a right view of who Jesus is
and why he came?

Dying to live (vv23-27)
Read also: Romans 6; Galatians 2:20; Colossians 3:1-17
➢ Jesus calls us to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow
Him? When have you found it hardest to obey this? What has
helped you to be obedient?
➢ This is a hard message to preach to our culture and society. How
might we explain to someone that this is good news, without
removing the challenge?

Scripture

Weary Disciples
Read also: Ephesians 3:20-21

➢ How do you react when your plans are disrupted? What might
help you respond in a positive, Gospel-oriented way?

➢ When have you been most aware of your inadequacy, and how has God worked in and through you in that experience?

Abundant Provision
Read also: Mark 6:30-44; John 6

➢ What alternatives to the Bread of Life does the world offer? Which of these are you/we most prone to feed on?

➢ We are called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the one who is sufficient for salvation and life. How might our lives undermine or support this message?

Preacher Rev. John Toller
Scripture

Power & Authority (vv1-2)
See also: John 14:12-15
➢ When have you felt under-prepared for God’s work, yet
experienced his equipping to do it anyway? Encourage one
another by sharing these experiences.

Take nothing but the gospel (vv3-6)
➢ The instructions of vv3-5 are specific to that situation, but reveal
general principles (which are?). If, on those principles, Jesus was
to give us instructions for how we go out as ministers of the
gospel, what kind of thing would he include?

‘Who is this?’ (vv7-9)
➢ What aspects of other peoples’ lives have best displayed Jesus to you? Ask God that your life, and the lives of your church family
members (be specific!) would cause people to ask Herod’s
question: ‘Who is this Jesus?’
