Discussion | Believe in God’s Son
Jon: Welcome, you are listening to the discussion episode titled, “Believe in God’s Son.”
Bradon: We saw a little bit of Jealousy and skepticism from John, the Baptists’ disciples. John responds with an epic monologue and a drop mic moment leaving the disciples with a lot to ponder.
Jon: As promised, we will explore the concept of what it means to believe in Jesus and talk about the implications of believing in him. So after each question, Bradon or I will speak before we ask the next question!
- What is one thing that is hard to believe about Jesus?
- John the Baptist connected the idea of belief in Jesus and submitting or obeying him. Do the concepts of belief and obedience fit together? Why or why not?
- Is there anything about Jesus that makes you want to believe in him? If so, what makes it so desirable?
Bradon: We want you to finish the sentence. Finish it a few times.
Jon: The sentence is this. If I believe in Jesus, I …
Bradon: So an example would be. If I believe in Jesus, I will love others.
Jon: My turn, If I believe in Jesus, I will one day live with him in Heaven
Bradon: Nice. Ok, so you can modify the sentence if you want. Perhaps you are thinking, “I do believe in Jesus, so it’s not an if” So rather than saying “if I believe in Jesus,” you could say, “because I believe in Jesus.” The point is to think through the ramifications – of belief in Jesus!
At the end of your discussion, go around the group and ask for prayer requests.
