Dying to Live?

If you missed it, here's a link to the Sermon: Dying to Live?
Reading: John 12:20-36

  1. Why did the Greeks need to ask to see Jesus?
  2. Does Jesus see them? Explain.
  3. Discuss the powerful pictures of the grain "dying" and the walking in the light. How can we apply these things to our own lives?
  4. Verses 27-34: what are the important things about what Jesus is saying here? Is any of this confusing? If so talk it through as a group (refer back to the sermon).
  5. Spend some time praying for each other as a group and the wider church, that we would take this teaching seriously.

God Has A Plan!


If you missed it, here's a link to the Sermon: God has a plan!
Reading: John 12:12-19

  1. What do you think of when you think about Palm Sunday?
  2. What was the reason for so many people went out to meet Jesus, what were they wanting from Him?
  3. Discuss the prophecies in Zech. 9:9 and Daniel 9:20-27. What does this tell us about God's plan?
  4. What does verse 16 tell us about how we should understand God's plan? And also how we should approach situations that we find bewildering in our personal lives?
  5.  Pray for us as a church, as housegroups and as individuals that we may faithfully seek to live in obedience to Christ.
