Digging Deeper into the Weekend Message

  1. Read Luke 9:51-62 and answer the following questions about commitment:
    1. In your own words, how would you describe the three different types of people we read about in verses 57-62?
    2. Why was Jesus not satisfied with their responses to His summons to follow Him?
    3. Discuss some of the things that can DESTROY our commitment to kingdom causes?
    4. Contrasting Jesus’ attitude in verse 51-56, what are some of the things that can STRENGTHEN our commitment to the kingdom cause?
  2. READ Ephesians 6:6-8 and discuss what it teaches us about commitment

Applying the lesson to your life

How should total commitment to kingdom causes affect the use of our time, our money, and our abilities?

Ask the Lord to help you to stay committed to the kingdom’s purpose no matter the distractions.
