Life Grp Q’s
“Bad Timing” 9/16/18

John 13:31-14:1 CSB


Share a high point and a low point from your summer.


In the message this week, was there anything that particularly caught your attention, challenged or confused you?

Going Deeper

•Read John 13:34. When Jesus said, “…as I have loved you, you are to love one another,” no one said, “Lord, how did you love us?” Discuss all the ways that Jesus showed His love for them.

-In which of those ways have you personally experienced that love?

•Our “New Community” is characterized by love for one another. How do these verses define that love in a greater way?

-Romans 12:10

-Colossians 3:13

-1 Corinthians 13:4-7

-Hebrews 10:24-25,

•Read John 13:35. Why do you think actively loving other Christians is such an effective way to reach non-Christians?

•Are you at all like Peter in 13:36-38? How accurate is your own assessment of your devotion to Jesus?


How can you love someone this week with the same love Jesus has shown you?
