Welcome to a deeper dive into this week’s sermon! Our hope is that we’ll all follow the pattern of Jesus and gather with a few other people regularly to learn and grow spiritually. Be sure you read each Bible section out loud. If you can’t get to every question, just pick a few and go for it. Before you start, take a moment of silence, then pray that the Holy Spirit will fill your conversations as you study God’s word and discuss its application to your life. Have a great time!

Recap Christmas. What were some celebrations and grievances this year?

What is a time in your life where you felt divided from those around you? How did you respond? 

Look at the characteristics of Caesar’s Kingdom vs. Jesus’ Kingdom. Which Kingdom do you honestly spend most of your time in? Explain. 

Caesar
Division
Create Debt
Control
Categorization
Punishment
Scarcity
Conquer

Jesus
Unity
Cover Debt
Liberate
Equality
Forgiveness
Abundance
Transform

Do you believe it’s possible to break free from Caesar’s Kingdom? 

Read Romans 5:6-9. One of the foundations to the Kingdom of God is radical forgiveness, how have you experienced this level of forgiveness either by God or people? How did it change you? 

Lastly Jesus’ Kingdom was for EVERYONE. As you look in your life, who are the people that you need to invite into the presence of His kingdom? 

In closing, pray the Lord’s prayer together.
