Speaking of JESUS

Speaking of JESUS


December 15, 2019: Episode 21 | Speaking of Goals

The message that sparked the conversation ... Love Is Enough.

What’s your greatest goal? Can you summarize it in a few sentences? That’s our focus today as we discuss Matthew chapter 22 and the command to love our neighbor.

Discussion Questions

  1. Introduce yourself and share a goal you've accomplished, are working on, or are considering. Why was/is this goal important to you?

  2. How often do you think/talk about long-range goals? How far out do you plan?

  3. Picture someone who is younger than you, who looks up to you. If they asked, "What's your lifetime goal?"—what would you say?

  4. How does the "greatest commandment" given by Jesus in Matthew 22:35-40 guide, adjust, or reinforce your goal(s)?

  5. God sends his people into four settings, or "spheres"—household, occupation, society, and congregation. Of those four spheres, which is requiring your focus in this season of life? Why?

  6. In his book Loved and Sent, Jeff Cloeter mentions five "habits of love"—being present, listening, sacrificing, risking, and praying for others (pages 136-42). Which of these habits will best serve the need in that sphere of your life?

  7. What do you get to know more deeply about Jesus by his answer to the lawyer's question (Matthew 22:35-40)?

  8. How is this good news for you?
