Be the Blessing – December 31

We’re blessed to be a blessing to others.

Read these verses before your discussion:
Matthew 5:1-16
John 12:24-26

Dive deeper into this week’s sermon content. Use these questions to help guide your group discussion.

  1. Read John 12:24-26. What stands out to you? What do you think Jesus means when he says, “Those who love their life in this world will lose it. Those who care nothing for their life in this world will keep it for eternity”?

  2. Did you make any resolutions this year? Most of our resolutions revolve around self-improvement or personal goals. Brainstorm for a few minutes how you might resolve to bless others in 2018.

  3. Beyond the small tweaks and corrections we try to make at the beginning of the year—twelve months of a clean calendar can invite wonder, excitement, and ambition. Has God given you a big vision for the new year? Are you asking God to show up in crazy ways? Share with the group.
