Going deeper questions (SMall Group)

·         What stood out to you about this sermon and why?

·          Share your testimony of salvation with each other.  How well do you know your story? Do you have a 3 min, 10 min, or full version ready for any moment?

·         Share how you led someone to Jesus.  Share what you felt- fear, nervousness- how did you overcome to share & lead?

·         The deeper we know God’s love (daily) the more passionate we share (witness).  How do you keep this love passionate?

Notes (Personal)

 Read John 3:1-21


Here we find Jesus having a conversation with a Pharisee who came to Him under the guise of nightfall.  Let’s unpack this discussion together!


Vv.2-3.  Why did he come to Jesus at night?


Vv.4-8.  What is the difference between being born in the flesh and born in the spirit?  Which birth leads to the kingdom of God?


Vv.9-16 How is the reference to Moses significant to the work of Jesus?


Vv.17-21 What does Jesus mean, He did not come to condemn the world, but save it?  Is your witness one of condemnation or salvation?  What is the difference?
