QUESTIONS TO HELP YOU DIG DEEPER INTO THE MAIN MESSAGE: ‘What’s Jesus UP To?’
Read our text: Luke 24:50-53.
Why do you think Jesus left this earth in the way that He did? Couldn’t He have just simply not been seen anymore?
Pastor Michael stated that Jesus was up to three things in our text and that God’s people should have three responses to what Jesus is doing: 1)He Leads, we follow. 2)He blesses, we worship. 3)He left, we continue His story. Discuss each of these and what they mean for us today?
What do you think about the idea that Jesus sometimes leads us to painful places? Read each of the following verses and discuss how they relate to this thought: Psalm 23:4, Romans 8:28, Psalm 55:22, 2 Corinthians 1:9, Lamentations 3:25-27, James 1:2-4, James 5:7-8, and 1 Peter 5:6-7. What would be His reasoning for doing this?
