The Core - Jesus Is Lord

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?

  • What do you think of the statement, “What you believe should change how you behave, but how you behave always reveals what you believe?”

Read John 1:49, 6:69, 11:27, 20:18, 25, and 28, and John 21:7.

  • Why do you think John shows a progression in the titles given to Jesus?
  • The Romans said, “Caesar is Lord.” Christians should say, “Jesus is Lord.” Fill in the blank “____ is Lord” for what keeps you from keeping Jesus in His proper place.
  • How have you done this week with the challenge of asking, “Does this please my Master?” when you make your choices?

Read Philippians 2:5-11.

  • What can we learn from this passage in how to live out our lives?
  • How do you feel you do in respect to living out “Jesus is Lord?”
  • How do you feel the Church does living out “Jesus is Lord?” What does the Church do well? What can be improved?
  • What are some dangers of extremism in behavior that can come from the living out “Jesus is Lord,” if any?

Prayer: Pray that you will focus on keeping “Jesus is Lord” at the Core of how you live.
