Glimpses of Glory (discussion questions)

Here are the discussion questions that accompany my message at Eastbrook Church this past weekend, “Glimpses of Glory,” from Mark 9:2-13.

Discussion Questions:

  1. When was a time where you powerfully encountered God’s presence in your life? What happened? How did you know it was God?
  2. Our Scripture passage this week is Mark 9:2-13. Whether you are alone or with a small group, read these verses out loud. Ask God to speak to you as you continue the study.
  3. There is some debate about exactly where this event happened. Tradition associates it with Mt. Tabor (southwest of the Sea of Galilee), while some Bible scholars think the location may have been Mt. Hermon (northeast of the Sea of Galilee) or Mt. Meron (northwest of the Sea of Galilee). What is clear is that the location of the ‘mountaintop’ is critical. There are likely echoes of Moses experience at Mt. Sinai during the Exodus. Take a moment to compare Mark 9:2-13 with Exodus 19:16-20 and 24:15-18. Read the rest of this entry »

Who Do You Say I Am (discussion questions)

Here are the discussion questions that accompany my message at Eastbrook Church this past weekend, “Who Do You Say I Am?,” from Mark 8:27-30.

Discussion Questions:

1. This week, we are looking at a short yet profound portion of Scripture: Mark 8:27-30. Whether you are alone or with a small group, read these verses out loud. Ask God to speak to you as you continue the study.

2. Throughout Mark’s Gospel there are all sorts of titles given to Jesus. Take some time to look through the following passages in the first chapter of Mark’s gospel to write down different names or titles given to Jesus: Read the rest of this entry »

Three Disciples

We are in the midst of a three-week series here at Eastbrook Church called “Three Disciples.” It brings focus to those three apostles who were closest to Jesus: Peter, John and James. The goal of the series is to take a biographical look at these disciples in order to see what it looks like for regular people like you and me to be disciples of Jesus today.

The series outline is:

May 19/20 – “Peter” – Dr. Bill Conner

May 26/27 – “John” – Jay Rhodes

June 2/3 – “James” – Dr. David Musa

Walk on the Waves (Risky Faith 3)

This weekend at Eastbrook, I finished up our series “Risky Faith” with a message entitled “Walk on the Waves” from Matthew 14:22-33.

The main point of the message is that Jesus is the Lord over all and we grow to know Him more as we take steps of risky faith like Peter.

Risky Faith

This coming weekend at Eastbrook I will begin a new series entitled “Risky Faith.”

When Jesus came into our world, He gave His very life that we might be brought back to God. Jesus does not call people into a comfortable or safe religion.  Instead, Jesus beckons His followers into a faith that risks. It is a faith filled with adventure, joy, and surprising possibilities. It is a faith that takes us beyond safety and control into the unknown depths of full life with the living God.  It is a life of risky faith that will go where He sends us and do what He calls us to do, no matter the cost.

April 28/29 – “Step Out” – Joshua 1:1-11

May 5/6 – “Ordinary Offerings” – 1 Samuel 1:1-28

May 12/13 – “Walk on the Waves” – Matthew 14:22-36
