POV - Next Level Faith

Main Point: Next level faith is having the faith of Jesus.

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
  • Have you ever looked at something simply from a different angle or perspective and it totally changed how you looked at it, such as a board game, a sports replay, a position in a debate, etc.?
  • What do you think impacts the perspective you have regarding your faith? Have people said or done things that have changed how you view your faith?

Read: Mark 9:14-29.

  • How do you handle mountain-to-valley experiences going from a spiritual high to daily life?
  • How do you feel about stories dealing with demon possession? Why do you feel that way?
  • Do you think demon activity is different today than in Jesus’ day? Why or why not?
  • Do you think Jesus ever has a similar view of us as the view he presented in verse 19? Why or why not?
  • How often do you have an if-you-can approach to God’s ability as opposed to a you-can approach? What do you think creates each approach?
  • Frank presented three components to having the faith of Jesus in order to have a next level faith: You ask for it, you trust God to give you that kind of faith, and you do what Jesus did. What part do you think you can focus on this week?
  • How would the Church look if it was full of people who had the faith of Jesus? How can you help bring this state to fruition?

Prayer: Pray for God to help you in your disbelief.
