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

  • What does your last name mean to you?

  • Have you ever had a change in who your family is (adoption, birth, marriage, etc.)? What was that like to either be brought into a family or bring someone else into a family?

Read: 1 John 5:6-12, Matthew 3:15-17, and Romans 6:3-4

  • How do you imagine you would have reacted if you had been there the day Jesus was baptized?

  • What does baptism mean to you? Have you been baptized? Why or why not?

  • If you are baptized, does your life reflect someone who has died to your old self and now lives for Christ? Why or why not?

  • Do you ever feel like God is a liar? Why or why not?

  • What are some of the reasons you have had, or have heard from others, for not getting baptized? How do you approach those reasons?

  • As a Christian, do you feel like part of a family? Why or why not?

  • How can you help others be part of the family of God?
