Icebreaker: What is a favorite excuse that you have used (now or in the past) to get out of doing work you don’t want to do?

  • Read Luke 9:51-56. Verse 51 says that Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. What do you think it mean that he went “resolutely”? What do you think was the reason behind it? What was Jesus’ mission? How do his actions in this passage demonstrate his mission?
  • Read Luke 9:57-62. Why do think the men in this passage wanted to follow Jesus? What kept them from doing so? Instead of backing off of the requirements necessary to follow him, Jesus seems to actually raise the stakes here. Why do you think he does this?
  • What are some excuses people use today for not following Jesus? What does Jesus require of those how follow him? How can we demonstrate that we meet these requirements?
  • How can we pray for each other?
