1. This week in ICNU Pastor Josh started by talking about the dream of every young Jewish boy to be a rabbi. When you were young what was one of your dreams to someday become?
2. As Pastor Josh described the original calling of the disciples, those words “come follow me” were really words saying “I see in you the ability to someday do what I do and replace me.” How has the idea of being a Jesus follower shifted from his view of what that looked like to today? How has it changed? Why has it changed?
3. At the feeding of the 5000 Jesus challenges the disciples to feed the people. Check it out in Mark 6:36-37. He believes they having everything necessary to accomplish the task. What’s their response and why does that hinder them? How do we sometimes respond in similarity to the disciples?
4. Pastor Josh talked through a few ICNU moments between Jesus and Peter. What sticks out to you in each of these occasions? 1. Matt. 16:15-18- Jesus calls Peter a rock. 2. John 21:15-19- Jesus calls Peter to care for his sheep and follow him once again.
5. In the great commandment Matt 28:18-20, Jesus says go and make disciples…or Talmidin…people who do what Jesus did. Also read John 14:12. What’s your definition of a disciple?
6. Living out and doing the things that Jesus did require time in the “quiet places”. Mark 6:31, Luke 5:16, Mark 1:35. Discuss the statement: You win the battles in the quiet place in order to enforce the victories in the public place.
