Speaking of JESUS


November 01, 2020: Episode 67 | Speaking of Change

The message that sparked the conversation ... Some People Never change?.

You’ve heard people say it: Once a jerk, always a jerk. Is it true? Join us in a discussion about personal change, the forces that influence us, and Daniel chapter 4.

Discussion Questions

  1. What is your reaction to the phrase, "Some people never change"?

  2. When have you personally felt or experienced the truth of the phrase, "some people never change," or some variation of it? Have you ever said it yourself, or felt like saying it?

  3. Is there anything you don't like about the phrase? What does it assume or overlook?

  4. A central character in the Book of Daniel is the Babylonian King, Nebuchadnezzar. In the first four chapters, Daniel's name is mentioned 30x, but Nebuchadnezzar is right next to him at 29 mentions. Elsewhere in the Bible, Nebuchadnezzar's described as a ferocious, man-eating lion (Jer. 50:17), leading an army with "horses swifter than leopards, more fierce than ... wolves," cruel and violent men "whose own strength is their god" (Habakkuk 1:6-11). And yet, in the Book of Daniel, we hear how this evil king was changed by the influence of God's people in his life. Nebuchadnezzar narrates his own personal transformation in a letter he wrote, which is recorded in Daniel 4. As you listen to it, what's a word or a phrase that stays with you? Why did that get your attention?

  5. What do you get to know more deeply about the God and Father of Jesus through this?

  6. How is this good news for you?

  7. Reflecting on this, what do you want to say to people in your household, congregation, or neighborhood?

Change Their World. Change Yours. This changes everything.
