Thankful Hands (discussion questions)

Here are the discussion questions that accompany my message at Eastbrook Church this past weekend entitled “Thankful Hands” from our series, “Thankful.”

Discussion Questions:


  1. What are ten things you are thankful for in your life? Why are you thankful for them?
  2. This week, we continue our series, “Thankful,” by looking at a well-known story in John 6:1-15. Ask God to speak to you, and then read these verses aloud.
  3. In the flow of John’s Gospel, Jesus has now moved from Jerusalem back to his home area in the north of Israel called Galilee. He has a significant following, which isn’t a surprise, but this poses a unique problem. What is the problem facing Jesus and His disciples in this situation?Read More »

This weekend at Eastbrook Church, I continued our series entitled “Thankful.”

The message, “Hands,” was based out of John 6:1-15, which is the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000 from a small child’s meager lunch. I built the sermon around the question, “what do you have in your hands?”

The outline for the message is below, but you can download a PDF of the sermon outline and discussion questions here. You can listen to the message online here. You can also visit Eastbrook Church on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can also access the entire sermon series here.
