Just Discipleship Part 3: Jesus’ Commission
Scripture: Luke 4:14-21
1. What stuck out to you about this message?
2. What are some reasons people give to explain Jesus’ coming to earth?
3. Read Luke 4:16-21. What do you notice about Jesus? What stands out to you about the passage that he read from Isaiah?
4. In a very real sense, this is Jesus’ personal mission statement. How does this compare or contrast to what others say Jesus’ purpose was for coming to earth?
5. The Disciple Year Challenge is three-fold. First, Engage with Jesus Daily (through prayer and scripture reading). Second, Pray to Serve at 10:02. Third, Do the Disciple Loop (be discipled and disciple someone).
6. How are you in engaging with Jesus daily? How would you like to improve in that?
7. Do you have your alarm set for 10:02? How can you find ways to serve at 10:02?
8. Who do you receive discipleship from? Who in your life do you teach about Jesus?
9. How can we pray?
Just Discipleship Study Challenge:
Choose a time and place to be quiet for 10 minutes.
First, be silent in prayer for 1 minute.
Second, thank God for 2 specific things.
Third, invite Christ to speak to you through the reading of the passage by asking these 3 questions.
As you read the passage, ask these three questions:
1. How does Jesus bring justice or show compassion here?
2. What does this teach about discipleship?
3. How can I pray based off this passage?
Finish in prayer for yourself, your family, your neighbors, your co-workers, your church.
