Sermon Text: Mark 8:22-9:1

Reflection Questions:

  1. How – specifically – is God teaching you to depend upon Him these days?  How – specifically – do you see a connection between depending on God and practicing self-denial?
  2. What classification of Jesus are you comfortable with?  If you classify Jesus as God do you actually relate to Him as Ultimately Authoritative over your life?  Come up with 3 examples of how you duck, dodge, or deny the authority of Jesus.
  3. Does God’s Plan of Salvation make sense to you?  Has The Gospel (i.e. God’s prodigal love for sinners) become boring, uninteresting, or humdrum to you?  Why or why not?
  4. How is God – specifically – calling you to be a partaker, and practitioner, of the prodigal game plan?
