Below is a brief review of our meeting on Sunday followed by a few questions for community group discussion or personal study this week.

We began by singing From Age to Age and Matthew read Psalm 40:1-3.

We sang Lord I Need You and Man of Sorrows.

After a time of prayer, Matthew preached the next message in our current series, Son of God: The Gospel According to Mark from Mark 6:30-44. The sermon was titled, “The Great Shepherd”. Audio for this message, as well as all other previous sermons, can be found on our Audio Resources page.

After the message we sang All the Way My Savior Leads Me.

Josh read Romans 6:1-4, and Galatians 2:20 as part of a special time of baptism for four of our members. Stephen Deloglos was baptized by his father Chris, Autumn Robertson was baptized by her father John, and Jerley Leon and Osmaira Mendez were baptized by Damian Crichigno.

In celebration of the baptisms, we sang The Saving One and Gene prayed a benediction over the congregation before sharing in a potluck lunch.


Discussion Questions:

1. Matthew said that the fight to follow Jesus is not an unfortunate necessity but a holy gift because He perceives our needs. In what ways did Jesus perceive the needs of the crowd in this passage? As God, how is He able to intimately perceive what we need as individual humans?

2. What daily needs have a tendency to distract you from your greatest need of Jesus?

3. Jesus exposes our need just as He did for the crowd in this passage. Why is can dying to our own self-sufficiency be so painful? Why is it necessary?

4. Matthew read Ezekiel 34:11-16 and Isaiah 55:1-3 to show us that Jesus satisfies our need. In the past, how has Jesus provided for you physically and spiritually? Considering Deuteronomy 8:3, what response should we have when faced with the needs of ourselves and others?

5. As a community, how can we specifically help others in the physical realm, all while reminding them of their ultimate need of Jesus?
