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 that they bear fruit with patience. We all know the pain and frustration of starting out well but finishing poorly. How have you seen the importance of patience in connection to personal growth?
3) As discussed in the message, times of testing are often when our faith grows the most. Share an experience in your faith journey that has helped God’s word to grow more deeply into your life.
4) What do you need to cut back or cut out of your life to hear God’s word more clearly?
