Limitless

What can faith do? Just look at Luke 8. Our faith in the mighty plans and hands of the Savior is limitless. The character and power of Jesus is seen over nature, demons, disease, and ultimately over death itself. We know it’s but a foretaste of what is to come. Let these stories be a reminder and challenge to us in 2018. Behind every great moment there are a series of small steps. One of those first steps for us is to believe in the limitless power of faith in Christ Jesus.

Use these questions to read, reflect, and live out Luke 8 this week (Small groups study Luke 7):

Luke 8v1-15
In what ways do you see God using your life to produce fruit for his kingdom?

Luke 8v16-21
What is the clear expectation of Jesus from his disciples (v21)?

Luke 8v22-25
When you face trials do you walk in faith or do you worry and speculate on what might happen?

Luke 8v26-39
How long has it been since you’ve told anyone about what God has done for you?

Luke 8v40-56
Is there a need in your life that makes you desperate for the Lord’s intervention?

Such Faith

Behind every great moment, there are a series of small steps. You’ll see people taking small steps in Luke 7. The centurion — the outsider — humbly requests help. The funeral crowd stopped in their tracks by life. John the Baptist wrestles with his own limitations and doubts. Then, beautifully, a sinner is given a chance to start fresh. Don’t miss another individual in Luke 7. The Pharisee was given a clear revelation of the mission & identity of Jesus. His pride and his sin kept him from experiencing it. We can be so close to the things of God and ignore it.

Use these questions to read, reflect, and live out Luke 7 this week (Small groups study Luke 6):

Luke 7v1-10
Along with humility, what else did the Centurion request in verses 6-8 demonstrate?

Luke 7v11-17
How did Jesus show His compassion here? What was their response?

Luke 7v18-35
When you doubt who Jesus is, what can you look at in order to reaffirm the character, care, and work of Jesus?

Luke 7v36-40
What drew this ‘known’ sinner to public scrutiny in this house?

Luke 7v41-50
What is the response to the forgiveness of Christ?

Great Preaching

The greatest sermon ever preached is found in Matthew 5-7 and here in Luke 6. It’s also called the Sermon on the Plain (v17). The psalmist regularly asked the Lord to instruct him. Here we find Jesus gathering disciples and instructing them. A disciple is a student of Jesus. We learn and apply his teaching.

Use these questions to read, reflect, and live out Luke 6 this week:

Luke 6v1-16
Do you see that a relationship with Jesus is more important than religious actions?

Luke 6v17-26
Do you regularly come to Jesus for instruction?

Luke 6v27-36
Why is it so hard to give (time, talent, treasure) & not expect something in return?

Luke 6v37-45
Where is God at work? How is your heart?

Luke 6v46-49
In what areas of your life would say your actions don’t measure up to your words?
