Going deeper questions (SMall Group)
· What stood out to you about this sermon and why?
· Share your testimony of salvation with each other. How well do you know your story? Do you have a 3 min, 10 min, or full version ready for any moment?
· Share how you led someone to Jesus. Share what you felt- fear, nervousness- how did you overcome to share & lead?
· The deeper we know God’s love (daily) the more passionate we share (witness). How do you keep this love passionate?
Read John 3:1-21
Here we find Jesus having a conversation with a Pharisee who came to Him under the guise of nightfall. Let’s unpack this discussion together!
Vv.2-3. Why did he come to Jesus at night?
Vv.4-8. What is the difference between being born in the flesh and born in the spirit? Which birth leads to the kingdom of God?
Vv.9-16 How is the reference to Moses significant to the work of Jesus?
Vv.17-21 What does Jesus mean, He did not come to condemn the world, but save it? Is your witness one of condemnation or salvation? What is the difference?
