Discussion Questions

April 11, 2021

Reflect:

  • If it was up to you, would you rather have Jesus localized on earth (able only to be in one place at one time) or to have the Holy Spirit indwell every believer? Why?
  • Does the promise of the Holy Spirit feel like a gift you know what to do with? Why or why not?
  • What prevents you from realizing the gift you have in the Holy Spirit?

Remember:

  • What are the disciples experiencing personally and circumstantially in John 13:31-14:14? What do you think the tone of Jesus’ teaching is? How does the context clarify why Jesus goes on a theological discourse about the Holy Spirit? If Jesus is leaving, what is comforting about the Spirit coming?
  • How do you see each Person of the Trinity involved in this passage?
  • Why is the Holy Spirit called “Helper?"
  • How does the Holy Spirit help?
  • Why do you think other translations use the terms “Advocate, Comforter, or Counselor?"
  • What is the significance of the word “another”? Is it another of a “different” kind or another of the “same” kind?
  • According to John 14, what is the proper motivation for obedience? Why does motivation matter?
  • What does it mean to “love” Jesus? Do a word study on “love” in the book of John. How does John use the word “love” throughout his gospel?

Discipleship:

  • Read Luke 11:1-13. Did you expect Jesus’ teaching on good gifts to end with the Father giving the Holy Spirit? Why or why not? How can you share the Father’s perspective that the Spirit is a good gift of exactly what you need?
  • Do you have communion in your life with the Holy Spirit?
  • Do you know the presence of the Spirit in your daily life?
  • Do you pray for help daily from the Holy Spirit as you walk through your days?

SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY


"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." Acts 2:42

____________________________


Fellowship isn't just something we do on Sunday mornings. It's gathering together in various groups to discuss Scripture, enjoy each others' company, support each other, share meals, and pray with and for one another. And while we do these things in many ways in our whole-church Sunday gatherings, meeting together through the week in smaller groups allows us to do this in a more intimate setting, allowing us to grow deeper in our relationships with each other and with God.


If you would like to know more about the small groups, please feel free to contact the leaders directly, or you can talk to a pastor or elder, a person who attends a group, or someone in the office.
