Conversation Starters help us dig deeper, connecting Sunday’s sermons with our Monday lives. These prompts have been designed to help Community Groups grow in their relationship with God, with one another, and with their neighbors. Please know that these questions are meant to be a resource to you. You do not have to follow them verbatim or get through them all. We trust you to know your group and to ask the questions based on your group needs.
1) What stood out to you in the sermon?
2) In Luke 8:15, Jesus says that people who are “good soil” hold fast to His word with an honest heart, and they bear fruit with patience. How have you seen the importance of patience in connection to personal growth?
3) The sermon discussed cultivating faith that lasts and how that requires ‘grit.’ Share an experience in your faith journey where ‘grittiness’ and ‘holding fast’ to God’s word helped God’s word to grow more deeply into your life.
4) What might you need to cut back or cut out of your life to hear God’s word more clearly so that you become someone who ‘stays with Jesus until the end’ as the women in Luke 8:2-3 were described in this week’s message.
