The Authority of Jesus (01.10.22)

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. 

The Authority of Jesus

On Sunday, one of our Elders, Drew, preached on the authority of Jesus in Mark 5:21-43.

Examining the passage, Drew highlighted three movements around the theme of Christ’s authority: Authority Acknowledged, Authority Abridged, and Authority Aligned.

When the authority of Jesus is acknowledged and not abridged, we find an opportunity to align to his will.

Reflection and Discussion

Read Mark 5:21-43 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.
