Life Group Questions for THE GOSPEL OF MARK

I-5 is a trip. If you're from Oregon you know your stretch of I-5. It's familiar to you. Comfortable even. But once you get a little north or drive a little south of your comfort areas your experience is different. Things change and you have some choices to make. You can choose to enjoy the differences and changes or you can resist them and pull back. On Sunday night we hit I-5 at about 1a. Traffic was light. Then we stopped in Grants Pass at 3:30a for gas and kept going. I fell asleep at this point for about 90 minutes. THANK YOU GOD! We stopped in Redding for breakfast and are now in Lebec at the base of the Grapevine pass about to embark towards LA and then into Tijuana later this afternoon. I-5 will do most of this for us. Nothing around me is familiar to me right now. It's all new and a little foreign. But one thing remains the same no matter what stretch of I-5 you're on or what side of the border you drive, God is good and God is for you and God has a plan to use you. The challenge today and every day is to allow God to lead us outside of our comfort zones, open up our eyes, and use us for His glory and others' good. Today let's expect the Lord to open up opportunities to serve others and to be stretched ourselves. This is what life is all about. Let the unfamiliar and uncomfortable situations of your life drive you to His will and His purposes. I love you guys. See you on the other side of 1-5 in just a bit.

1) Jesus continues His teachings and parables. What is your favorite parable of Jesus and why? 

2) No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket or their bed. Instead, they put it high up on a lampstand. Why shouldn't we hide our light? What ways can we elevate our light so the world can see? What does God want to elevate or show off in your life? Read Matthew 5:16. 

3) Jesus also talked about how the Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed. It's small but grows HUGE! Just like the Gospel of Jesus. The Gospel of Jesus has changed our lives in Newport, Oregon, USA, Mexico, and the list goes on. Talk about the family of God and how we are all connected to one another! 

I love you guys! 

Updates from Mexico coming soon!

See you soon.
