QUESTION TIME
Walk through these questions together as a family!
Scripture: Matthew 7:24-27, Luke 11:28
Discipleship: Being, Forgiving, Serving, Giving, Going: These are the 5 targets, the 5 principles that characterize a Jesus follower according to Jesus’s Words. Throughout this challenge, we are going to put Jesus’ words and teachings into practice. 
Doctrine: If we can give the right expression of who Jesus really is, by reading His Word and putting it into practice, people will fall in love with Him.  
 
Questions:
Ice Breaker: What is one thing you have been missing this week that you didn't think you would ever miss? What is one thing you have really enjoyed about this past week?

1. Take some time to discuss the previous week’s Challenges. Here are some things to discuss:
  • Celebrate a “win” that you had in the Red Letter Challenge over the past week.
  • Share a struggle.
  • What did God reveal to you during the Challenges this week?
2. Zach mentioned Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, which reveals that the greatest need for fulfillment in this world is when our Transcendence Needs (helping other achieve their
potential) are met. Do you agree? Why or why not?

3. Read 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 together. God’s Word reveals that our purpose is to serve God by serving others. Do you feel like you are fulfilling your God-given purpose for serving? Explain. What are you naturally good at doing? How can God be glorified through your talents, skills, or abilities?

4. Jesus said, “If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles” (Matthew 5:41). Explain a time where you have gone the extra mile for someone. What did it mean to him or her? What did it do for you?


5. Who is someone you know, whether an individual or a group, that is living out their God-given purpose? What does that person or group teach you?

6. What is the difference between a Christian serving and someone who doesn't believe in Jesus serving? What should be different about the way Christians serve others?

7. Make sure you are committed to doing the Red Letter Challenge! Talk about their time, place, and plan for the continuing this challenge.
