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?
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.
