Small Group Questions – 11/24

Small Group Questions – 11/24

Some of HPC’s Small Groups are using sermon based discussions. The goal is to dive a little deeper into the Word, based on the passage Pastor Greg preached from. Each week Pastor Greg will give us some questions to help direct the discussion. The questions for this week are below, and you can listen to the sermon audio here.

Based on Sermon for Sunday Nov. 24th in entitled “Characteristics of Crazy Love”

  1. Talk about God’s character that we see in Jesus Words, “He loved them to the end” in . How does the reality that God never gives up on us, and as His children continues to pour out grace upon us, change our lives? How does it change your dealings with others?
  2. Jesus washed Judas’s feet. What can we learn from this? Who or in what way is God asking you to respond today to the command to LOVE enemies?
  3. Peter has a foot-shaped mouth! Why was it necessary for Peter to be washed? From a spiritual perspective, have you been overwhelmed by Christ’s selfless humility of washing you?
  4. It is very easy to minimize the call of Jesus in to “wash one another’s feet.” Talk openly about what this command could really mean for our lives. Considering the promised results in from being obedient to this command, how might we be missing out on blessings?

13:1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. During supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him, Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, do you wash my feet?” Jesus answered him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand.” Peter said to him, “You shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no share with me.” Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!” 10 Jesus said to him, “The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was to betray him; that was why he said, “Not all of you are clean.”

12 When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? 13 You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. 16 Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. (ESV)

13:1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. (ESV)

14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. (ESV)

17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. (ESV)
