Going Deeper is designed for use with your small group, a friend or on you own. Its aim is to create time for you to spend with God and his word. Do as much or as little as you like. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact one of our pastoral staff.
3. This Sunday, the message in the Clear Thinking series focused on a Change of Heart. What thoughts or questions did the message raise for you? Which thoughts or points encouraged you orposed a challenge to you?
6. Focus on :5 where Jesus invites himself to Zacchaeus home. Have you ever invited yourself into the life of another in such an overt way? Has anyone ever invited themselves into your life as Jesus does here? What personal desires do you have around sharing your life with others? In light of the loneliness in our society, and the isolation of even some within our church, how might you be inspired by this story?
7. Read Lev 6:1-5 which describes the guilt/reparation offering. What is the specified amount of repayment in case of wrongful taking of another’s property? This is what Zacchaeus owes to those from he took too much in taxes. How much does he actually commit to repay? What are your thoughts on his decision?
8. Take a moment of silence as you consider how God is speaking to you. Do you sense an invitation to something new? What concrete steps of response do you want to take? How can your group support you in these steps?
