Life Group Questions for THE GOSPEL OF MARK

You have no idea what's going on. But you do know what to do. You need to do the next right thing. Let me unpack that for you a bit. In our lives, we really don't know what's going on. We like to think we do and we take great comfort in areas of our lives where we feel we've finally arrived or are in control. But oftentimes this control is a grand illusion and before we know it, things have spiraled out of control and we find ourselves wondering what's really going on. Things didn't turn out the way you envisioned or planned. Things were harder than you anticipated. In a very real sense things are all messed up. This wasn't your plan and it may not even be your fault. But it is your responsibility to do the next right thing. Some of my inspo for this post is taken out of Acts 16 which I'll be teaching tonight at OSU with the Real Life gang. It's gonna be LEGIT! In Acts 16 Paul begins his second missionary trip to the outer world. It's a glorious thing. It's a trip that you'd expect much provision, power and support to pull off. However, Paul has to overcome some serious relational turbulence with his friend Barnabas before he heads back to Lystra and Derbe where he was previously misunderstood, attacked and stoned to death. Makes my day seem like a walk in the park! There are all kinds of things Paul has to work through. Paul really has no idea what's going on. But he does know what to do. He does the next right thing by taking the next steps into his calling and trusting that God's will cannot be stopped. In our lives it can get dicey quick. Don't get startled. Don't spaz out. Don't tap out. Instead, work it out. You're going to have to move forward as an offering to the Lord and follow His character of grace, mercy, persistence and patience. If you do this, there will be fruit along your path. You have no idea what's going on. But you do know what to do. Let's do it together! 

DTNRT and TTP. He is for you! I am too.

1) Jesus had a quiet solitary place where He connected and recharged before the busyness of the day. How is your quiet time with the Lord these days? Has He revealed anything special to you recently? In your groups, spend 2-10 min of quiet time right now listening to His voice. See if He shares something with you! IT could be for you or it could be to share! 

2) Jesus was instructed to go to the other towns. The smaller places. The lesser important people. How does this encourage you? How does this challenge you?

3) When Jesus saw this leper He was moved with compassion. How do you respond when you see people who are 'untouchable'? Are you challenged by Jesus and His compassion? How does His compassion encourage you in the way He looks at you when you've got some leprosy on your face? 

He is for us yall! 

Let's DTNRT!
