Community Group Questions:

Engage Yourself:

What about the passages or the sermon stood out to you most? What was most challenging or most encouraging?

In what areas of your life do you find it most difficult to give all of your allegiance to Christ and his Kingdom? Why is that? What is keeping you from entrusting yourself to him completely?

Engage the Text:

Ezekiel 34 talks a lot about the shepherds of Israel feeding themselves and exploiting the flock of God. Read through that passage. What stands out to you? How do these verses land for you personally?

Engage your Neighbor:

The Magi or “wise men” were Pagans who practiced divination. Yet God chose to meet them in the midst of their sin. How might this challenge the way you approach evangelism and the mission of God?
