Today we begin a new series unpacking the teaching of Jesus to his disciples found in Sermon on the Mount. This message from Jesus should shape every aspect of our lives as we seek to follow Jesus.
The Crowds and The Disciples: Who are we?
Jesus had begun to preach, heal the sick and cast out demons. Crowds started to follow Jesus. Jesus saw the crowds and began to teach his disciples. Which are we?
Just search the hashtag #blessed on social media and you can get a picture of what kind of blessing the world is looking for. The world has its idea of what it means to be blessed. Jesus' teaching about what it means to be blessed couldn't be more different.
After the statements of blessing Jesus says that his disciples are "salt and light." What does it mean to be salt and light in the world? What does that have to do with what Jesus says is blessed?

Life Group Discussion Questions Below

As our life groups gather this week, we have attached our reference verse and some questions to prompt a deeper discussion and search into this week's topic.

If you are not currently part of a life group, and would like to join a small group of like minded people in fellowship and connection during the week, please contact Nick on 0417472474 to register your interest.
1. As you read through Jesus' statements of blessing which one stands out to you the most? Why?

2. What do you think the world looks for as signs of blessing?

3. Discuss practical ways that modern day disciples of Jesus can live out the things that Jesus said are blessed.

4. Why do you think Jesus used the examples of salt and light to describe his disciples? What does that mean for us today?
Pray for your life group, and others you may feel led to pray for, that we may know God more, and grow ever closer to Him.
