Dive In: This passage hits home for most of us. Read or listen to it (Luke 5:33-39) in an unfamiliar translation of the Bible (e.g. New Living Translation or The Message). What did this passage teach you about who God is?
  1. What piqued your curiosity, challenged you, encouraged you, motivated you from the sermon?
  2. Have you ever been hurt by Jesus-followers or the church? If you’re comfortable, share about it. Have you been able to move past it? How were you able to do that?
  3. Is there any Christian tradition that you perhaps habitually or thoughtlessly practice without engaging with the depth and meaning of it?
  4. What spiritual practices or traditions feed your soul or help you to encounter God?
  5. What are some things that we have become culturally involved or enmeshed in that actually derail the way of Jesus?
