Some Staggering Claims

If you missed it, here's a link to the Sermon: Some Staggering Claims 

Reading: John 14: 7-14

  1. Verse (5 &) 8. What have Thomas and Philip failed to understand about Jesus? Then verses 7, 9 & 10: Do people still struggle with this truth?How important is this truth to us as Christians? To the church?
  2. Discuss verse 12, What do you understand from Jesus statement here? Greater in what way? What condition(s) does this verse contain?
  3. Why do you think the church isn't seeing more of these "greater" works? Discuss what we as individuals and a church an do about it.
  4. Verses 13 & 14 contain a stunning promise. Discuss the word anything (in the context of what Jesus has said from verses 1 to 12). Does this mean we will get whatever we ask for? Explain.
  5. Prayer should always be within the will of God. What does this mean and how do we do that?
  6. There is a lot in this passage for us to apply to our lives. What is that and how do we do it?
