Text: Luke 9:37-48; Matthew 19:13-15; Luke 22:20-24

  1. Comparing ourselves to others is a common practice that can lead to frustration, doubt and discouragement. In your opinion, what is the greatest single heart issue at work when we do this?
  2. “Self-actualization” is a term that describes a person who is self-secure, not unduly influenced by others and exhibits a healthy level of confidence.This would be a great discussion item for your Oikos.  How could you introduce it, especially in the work place?
  3. Jesus redefines greatness. He is counter-cultural.  How do westruggle with our desire to be “great” (especially in light of contemporary social media),   and our biblical understanding of greatness?  What specific area(s) of life is this a struggle for you? 
  4. As friends, comrades in community with one another, how can we help each other become ‘great’ in the eyes of Jesus? Further, how could we then become a GREATLife Group?
  5. What personal characteristics enhance biblical greatness in our lives?

Sermon Discussion Questions by Pastor Nicholas:

  1. What in the sermon this week was interesting, troubling, inspiring, convicting or confusing to you?

  2. What personal story could you tell someone in your Oikos to make an impact? Think about it. Consider telling the story to your Life Group.

  3. In what boxes have you placed yourself? How might they limit your ability to communicate the message of Jesus?

  4. What place do you put yourself in the story? As you consider the banquet table that was set in Luke 7, where are you sitting? Which character are you? Why?

Bonus Points!
Read Matthew 26:6-13,  Mark 14:3-9,  Luke 7:36-50,  John 12:1-8.
All contain a woman anointing Jesus.  Are these stories about the same encounter? Or are they different? What makes you think so?
