The Good Shepherd and the Gospel

Here is the sermon, in case you missed it: Your Choice

1.       Read through the ‘Good shepherd passage’ John 10: 7-18. As a group discuss the passage, unpicking the various aspects i.e. who are the sheep, who is the hired man etc. etc.

2.       Sunday’s message focused on verse 10. What is this ‘rich and satisfying life’ that Jesus talks about? How might Christians be missing out on experiencing this life in the present?

3.       The Gospel message is more than ‘God is Love’ – Discuss.

4.       People need to hear the Gospel. A) how can we as individuals tell them? B) how as a church can we encourage and enable each other to share that Good News.

5.       Spend some time in prayer thanking God for those who visited on Sunday and also praying for those individuals.
