What Is Counterfeit Christianity?

Questions from the Message:

  • Where in your life do/have you ‘craved’ the world? What needs to change?  (“For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.” 1 John 2:16).
  • Have you allowed ‘secondary’ sources to take precedence over your primary source – the Word of God? What do you need to do to rectify that to reset your ‘life’ routine to be regularly in the Word of God?
  • Are you evaluating what you hear/watch/see with what you are reading in your Bible? Is it consistent with the Word of God or is it ‘not quite right?
  • Jesus came to give us ‘life to the full’ (John 10:10). Have you given your life totally over to Him? Whose ‘friend’ are you? In whose name do you ‘boast’ in? The world’s – or in the Name of the LORD?

What? We Have to Love?

Questions from the Message:

  • How do you keep your ‘battery’ of love fully charged?
  • How do you approach those who you find difficult to love? Do you try harder to love them or do you just ignore them?
  • How will you – as you respond to the prompting of the Holy Spirit – show love to someone this week and beyond?
  • Do you need to make a conscious decision – maybe daily – to accept the grace and forgiveness of God, and then start loving yourself more? What does that look like?

Why the Resurrection is Different

John 20:13-31


Jesus is alive. Think about the event of Easter Sunday – the open tomb and the appearance of Jesus to Mary. What is your response to the risen Jesus?

Where and how do you find sustenance in Jesus?

Have you experienced the love of Jesus? Where and how does that play out in your life as you set yourself to the task of making the kingdom of the world into the kingdom of God?

The Cross of Christ

Questions from the Message

John 19:13-34

As you reflect on the Cross, what do you feel?

Jesus urges us that the highest life – the best life – is one that is lived for others. (Matthew 16:25). What does your ‘best life’ look like?

Have you actually stopped and taken some time to simply and significantly thank Jesus for the Cross?
