The Story & Way of Jesus: Authority, Demons, & Kingdom Living (09.20.21)

Processing and responding to the Sunday sermon

Opening Prayer

After the group welcomes one another, have one person open in prayer and then take 2-3 minutes of silence. As you sit in silence, ask the Holy Spirit to open your heart in love toward God and your group mates. 

Spiritual Authority

On Sunday, Eugene Cho guest preached from Mark 1:21-34. He encouraged us to recognize the authority of Jesus and walk in the authority Christ has given His disciples.

Walking in this spiritual authority like Jesus did means that we respond to the spiritual needs of those around us, such as engaging the ministries of evangelism, healing, and even demonic deliverance. This ministry to spiritual needs must be coupled with care for physical needs—such as food, housing, and other dimension of social justice.

This week’s guide will provide space to dig in further, prayerfully process, and then discuss the sermon.

Reflection and Discussion

Read aloud Mark 1:21-34, and then prayerfully and silently reflect on the passage and these questions.

After silently reflecting, take these thoughts into a time of group discussion.

Closing Intercession

Pray for your group, our church, our city, and our world.
