Finding Life, Learning to Live, Living to Serve

Smith Grove Livestream

Discussion Questions:

  • How does the misguided approach of the disciples beginning in Matthew 20:20 parallel your own approach to God and the Christian life?
  • Why can’t grace and pride coexist? Can you think of other scriptural passages that speak to this truth?
  • Reflect on verse 28 from today’s passage. In what ways does this influence the way you are to live in Christ?

Pray Together:

Spend some time in a prayer of thanksgiving for Jesus coming to fulfill God’s will. Thank Him for the example He gave us of how to live as a servant of all, and seek Him to give you the strength and wisdom to live this way in obedience.

Gospel Connection:

Jesus came to serve others and not to be served. Knowing this truth, how can it serve as an encouragement to tell the good news of the Gospel to others?
