Q1: What is your favorite way to camp? What do you like to do when camping?

Everyone answer 30 seconds max.



Q2: Matthew 9:9 (ESV)

(Jesus) saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he rose and followed him. 


There is something so simple about Matthew’s response to Jesus. Why do you think so many people who believe in Jesus don’t seem to be following Him?

Q3: Matthew 5:3–12 (ESV) The beatitudes.


What was your biggest takeaway from the beatitudes?

Q4: Matthew 16:16–18 (ESV)

Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.


What is the “Rock” that Jesus will build the church on. Hint - it is not Peter. 

Why do you think that rock is the key to the success of the church?

 

Digging Deeper: 


Matthew 5:10 (ESV)

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.


What do you think it means to be persecuted for righteousness sake?

Do you think you would be willing to endure that?
