Questions to help you dig deeper into the message
[for your small group or family devotions]:
What stood out and ministered to you most in this message?
Who in your life has been a mentor, someone you’ve looked up to? If they were believers, what would it mean/do to you if they fell in a big-time way? Have you ever known anyone who walked away from their faith in Christ? Why did they?
Pastor Michael used an example of a passage from The Lord of the Rings, and shared how sometimes when we read the Bible out of context, without knowing the entire story, it can seem like gibberish. Have you ever found that to be true? How does 2 Timothy 2:15 relate?
Read 1 Corinthians 3:1-11. Discuss why we humans feel the need to put certain leaders on a pedestal.
Read Hebrews 12:1-2 and talk about what it, practically, looks like to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus.
