The Story & Way of Jesus: Heaven Touching Earth (09.27.21)

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. 

Depending on God

On Sunday, Ruthie Kim preached from Mark 1:35-45 and the importance of depending on God.

Jesus departed to solitary wilderness places to pray. It was from these moments alone depending on the Father that Jesus found the power, authority, and clarity required for His mission. Likewise, disciples of Jesus like us get to follow in His footsteps to depend on God.

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

Reflection and Discussion

Read aloud Mark 1:35-45, 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.
