How did we see God move this week as we tried to live out the Spirit’s leading? What challenges did we encounter? What victories can we celebrate?

Matthew 28:16-20

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Recall from Sunday:

Matthew 28:16-18 – We see Jesus through our doubts as the Son of Man

Matthew 28:19 – We make disciples

Matthew 28:20 – We lead with Jesus

Reflect: What sticks out to you personally from the passage?

What impacted you on a personal level from Sunday’s sermon?

The disciples saw the resurrected Jesus and worshiped him, but still doubted. Before you came to Jesus, or as you’ve grown in relationship with him, what are some of the ways you’ve struggled with doubt? How did you work through those doubts to trust in Jesus?

Trying to accomplish The Great Commission on our own is uncomfortable at best, and impossible at worst. But Jesus said he has all authority and promises to be with us always. Where are you currently living out the Great Commission? Where might God be calling you to step out to reach others? How can you lean on Jesus in the process?

Are there other believers in your life who are struggling with doubt? How might the Spirit be drawing you to encourage them in their faith? Which friends and family members have objections to the faith that God may be calling you to have a conversation with? Spend some time praying together that the Spirit would equip and embolden you to minister to others

Do you have friendships with non-Christians? If so, make some plans tonight to spend time with them in a setting where they feel comfortable. Consider in prayer what next steps God may be drawing them on in the path of faith and how you could help. If you don’t have friends who aren’t Christians, brainstorm with your group about how you could form some of those relationships. Maybe consider if your group wants to host a barbecue or other social event with your non-Christian friends.
