Message Notes

Living Sacrifice // Love Calls Us // 08.14.22

To be a true Living Sacrifice, our source for serving the Lord must stem from love. But not just the idea of love, a deep love for the creator of Love, for the source of Love, The Father. When we truly understand this love, then we will be called to a deeper set of disciplines which forms us into true disciples of Jesus Christ.

Love must be free of hypocrisy. Detest what is evil: cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor, not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality. Romans 12:9-13

Discussion Questions

Intro: This past week we talked about how Love calls us to a few different aspect in our walks with Jesus. Applying these disciplines will help us ultimately increase our understanding of who the Father is and who we are in Him. Take a look at some of these disciplines and talk about some practical ways you are or need to apply these to your life.

 

1.      Our love must stem from Love Himself. In order for love to be our never ending source it cannot be love for what we are, or for the accolades that come from serving, it must simply stem from loving God, whom all love flows. What are some guardrails you can put up to make sure you’re serving with the right heart?

 

2.      True love calls us to devotion for one other. What does devotion look like, practically, especially within your small group? And do you feel you are devoted to each other? Why or why not?

 

3.      In what ways do you see cultures aversion to persevering through hard times? What are the consequences? What about yourself, have you avoided anything lately? Are their places and things in your life you haven’t “persevered” though?

 

4.      Love calls us to do something. So this last questions is less of a question, and more of a challenge. Take a few moments and chat with your group on some idea of moving into action. Maybe it’s a park cleanup, maybe it’s serving at a homeless shelter, but try and come up with a few ideas you could do as a group to go out and serve. Put a date on it, schedule it, challenge yourselves to action.
