This month we look at the group value of Stories. Whether we’ve been following Jesus for 10 days, 10 months or 10+ years—God has worked in our lives. Share with your group a space or location God has used to meet you in your story.

This is Week 3 of our new series, 10 QUESTIONS JESUS ASKED. This week’s conversation looks at a question Jesus asks a man he healed.
If you could ask anyone a single question, who would you ask and what would the question be?
As a group, take turns reading to read John 9:1-41. What stood out as you listened/read?
What question do the disciples ask Jesus that starts this whole encounter?
How does Jesus respond to the disciples’ question, and what does he mean?
How have you seen others allow God to work through them as they travel through a difficult season?
What’s something difficult you are going through that you want to ask God to be at work through you by the way you journey through it?
What questions do the Pharisees ask the man’s parents?
What’s at risk for the parents as they answer the questions?
Why do you think the Pharisees respond the way they do?
The Pharisees are spiritually blind. In Mark 8:14-21, Jesus asks his own disciples a set of questions. What does he ask them?
Pastor Jeff Manion gave some examples of ways we can become spiritually blind. Which of those resonated with you the most?
How can our group help each other from becoming blind to what God is doing in the world and the part he wants us to play?
What question does Jesus ask the man in John 9:35, and what does Jesus mean?
One of the key steps of the spiritual journey is the step the healed man takes in John 9:38. What does the man say? Why is this step so significant?
Part of the spiritual journey is to keep moving—whether we are just investigating Jesus or have been following him for years. What’s one thing or spiritual discipline the group can be praying about that you think will help you keep moving?
Today we talked about a question Jesus asks a man he heals. Is there a part of today’s conversation that really challenged you? What’s something you want to do to follow up on that or make a change?
