Name Above All Names

LIFE GROUP SERIES - Fall 2022

Am I believing, receiving and experiencing Christ in all the ways He has revealed himself?  In this 8 week series we will study the names and titles of Jesus and enter into a deeper understanding of who he is and what He came to do in our lives. As we study his names and titles, that we would know him better, experience Him deeper, and accept him more fully in all the ways He has revealed himself.  That He would become first in our thoughts and first in our heart and that we would be enabled to trust Him and treasure him more we ever have before.

‘But to all who did receive Him, who believed in his Name, he gave the right to become children of God”. John 1:12

 

“Therefore, God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the Name that is above every Name, so that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”  Phil 2:9-11

LIFE GROUP DISCUSSION

Name Above All Names

Week 2:  The Good Shepherd

 

Fun Question:  What’s the strangest thing you know about your family history?

 

2.  Have a few people share an observation or question from the daily reading of John

 

3.  Read John 10:11.  Jesus is the good Shepherd, but Satan’s greatest attack is to get us to doubt His character.  How have you seen God’s goodness in your life even in the midst of difficulty?

 

4.  Read Psalm 23:1-2.  Jesus leads us to "green pastures” and “still waters” through spiritual habits like worship, small group and personal bible reading and prayer.  What are other ways you can experience the soul rest and refreshment Jesus offers as our Shepherd?

 

5.  Read Psalm 23:3 and John 10:3-4. How can we discern the guidance and voice of the good shepherd in contrast to our own thoughts and desires?

 

6.  Read Psalm 23:4.

 

God has promised his presence, protection and comfort when we go through a battle or a valley.  Why does He not necessarily remove the situation?

 

How would acknowledging God as my protector and provider change the way I make everyday choices?

 

7.  PRAYER TIME:

 

Where in your life right now do you need the Good Shepherd’s acomfort, guidance or protection?

 

Who is on your heart that is weak, hurting, straying or lost that you can reach out to this week and be the hands and feet of the Good Shepherd?

 

APPLICATION:

 

As the Good Shepherd, Jesus still desires to speak to us.  This week, plan a specific time each day to get alone with God, turn on some worship music, read the Word, and write down what you  think God is saying to you through what you read that day.
