Empowering: Explaining The Life Of Jesus Week 6 Discussion Questions

Based on Sermon from May 13, 2018.
What is your favorite “Superhero” movie?  What is it about this character that draws you into picking him/her as your favorite?  Is it the way they can scale buildings, swing from webs, stop a moving train, move as fast as lightning, save the world …
Now for just a second be honest with yourself so you can be honest with others.  How has “superhero” movies and TV shows affected the way you view Jesus?  Seriously take a few minutes to think through that question.  With movies showing us super human powers over and over again, have we lost our awe with the super human power of Jesus?

In Luke’s discipleship of Theophilus, Luke is now moving away from describing who Jesus is and what His mission is to now showing practically all that he has already set up for Theophilus.  Jesus is God and Luke is about to prove it over and over again with Jesus’ incredible power.  This same power that spoke creation into existence (try that Superman) is the same power that will set captives free and restore life to so many.

Here are a few discussion questions that you can use in your Life Group or in community with someone this week.  We highly encourage and hold up as a Key Value here at Lighthouse the truth that we need community!  You cannot go through this life as a follower of Jesus on your own.  You need the community and the community needs you!
If you are not yet plugged into a Life Group and would like to please see our Life Group link in the website.  http://lighthousechurch.net/groups

Discussion Questions:

  • Which Superhero is your favorite and why?
  • How has the Superhero idea affected your view of Jesus? – remember honesty!
  • Read Hebrews 12 – What are you fixing your eyes on / are you glancing at Jesus?
  • What are your thoughts regarding the Demon shouting out who Jesus is and what Jesus came to do?  How did they know that?
  • How did Jesus get this demon to come out of this man?  – Hint – Spoken Words
  • What did the man who was possessed by this demon DO to deserve being set free?
  • 1 John 4:4 – How do you see God being grater than the evil presence in the world?
  • 1 John 3:8 – What needs to be destroyed in your life?
  • How can you describe Jesus’ life based upon his power over demonic powers?

I pray that these discussion questions will be helpful and will draw you closer in your relationship with Christ!
