Conversation Starters – Leawood Campus

TAKEAWAY: How would you explain this sermon to a non church-going person?

DRAWING CONNECTIONS: God is in the business of calling a people and transforming their lives for the benefit of others. Where else do we see this in the Bible? (eg. Abraham, Israel, Isa 49:6) Where in the history of the church?

MAKE IT PERSONAL: Read Ephesians 4:25-32. What are some specific ways that following Jesus causes us to be or look “strange” to others? In what ways has this strangeness impacted others? Your neighbors? Community? Workplace?

ASSESSING HABITS: What are the practices you employ or might employ to grow in “putting on the new self” like Paul talks about?

NAVIGATING CULTURE: Being “strange” doesn’t mean that we have an excuse to be unrelatable. How do we navigate being faithful to following Jesus and yet still maintain a sense of relatability?

PRAYER: Imagine what our community would look like if the church contained transformed people who loved as Christ loved. Is this truly hope for all? (To begin a time of prayer Read Ephesians 3:14-19. Notice what Paul prays for for the church. Incorporate Paul’s prayer requests in your prayers.)
