If you are going through these questions with a group, summarize the message from this weekend for anyone who might not have been there.

If you are going through these questions as an individual, spend some time going over your notes or writing down any thoughts or questions that stand out from the message this weekend.



Main Thought: All can be forgiven.

How would you define forgiveness?

Read Luke 23:32-34. Gary shared that in this passage “forgive them” can be translated “leave them alone”. Jesus knew the Father’s wrath was rising up in Him as they brutalized His son, but Jesus says to leave the people alone and to condemn Him instead. What emotions does this cause to rise up in you?

Read Isaiah 53 & Ephesians 1:7 & Micah 7:18-19. Is this forgiveness hard for you to receive? Why or why not?

Can you think of a time when you desperately needed forgiveness and were offered it? Or were not offered it? How did that make you feel? How did that experience change the way you understand forgiveness?

What people in your life are the hardest to forgive? Why?

Read Romans 5:8.

Jesus forgave in the middle of our sin, intentional and unintentional. What does it look like for us to offer up forgiveness in the middle of unintentional hurt? Is that easier or harder to forgive than when someone causes you intentional pain?

Do you tend to correlate forgiveness and trust? How can we reframe the idea that they are connected in order to open the door of forgiveness without putting ourselves in unwise situations?

Read Colossians 3:13. Ephesians 4:31-32. 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Gary talked about how forgiveness should mark our lives and flow through us - what are tangible consequences in our life of Jesus dying for your sins? Would people know you’ve been forgiven based on the way you live?

What is the Holy Spirit prompting that “all” means for your today? A specific person? Your own story? Do you trust that God can and is redeeming all things?

If you are going through these questions as an individual, spend some time going over your notes or writing down any thoughts or questions that stand out from the message this weekend.



Main Thought: All God Wants Is A Simple Faith

What signs do you see when you find yourself trying to earn God’s love?

What unrealistic expectations have you (or someone else) imposed on your faith journey?

Do you feel comfortable to cry out to God?

Do you identify with the certainty of heaven?

Do you feel the nearness of heaven?

What keeps you from sharing the gospel with people in your circle of influence?

Who is one person in your circle of influence that needs to hear the simplicity of the gospel?

If you are going through these questions as an individual, spend some time going over your notes or writing down any thoughts or questions that stand out from the message this weekend.



Main Thought: There’s Compassion At The Cross

Read John 19:26-27

What is the importance of Jesus saying, “Dear woman, here is your son”? What is the importance of Jesus saying, “Here is your mother”?

What is an example of a time you have seen the gospel of grace get lost in theological truths?

Have you experienced being up close and personal with the greatness of God’s compassion?

What does it look like for you to stand at the foot of the cross?

Main Thought: I Must Accept That He Paid For My Sin In Full!

Read Mark 15: 33-34

What questions do you have about the crucifixion of Jesus?

What do you think hell is like?

When is a time you have felt abandoned or forsaken?

What does Pastor Doug mean when he said, “Jesus died on the cross not to make bad people good, but rather to make dead people alive”?

Do you feel as though you are the joy of Jesus?

Is it easy or difficult for you to accept that he paid for you sin in FULL?

Main Thought: Scripture Must Set The Pace For My Life

What are the circumstances around the last time you were REALLY thirsty?

Read John 19:28-29

Why do you think John felt the need to record these words, when the other three gospels did not include them?

Read John 14:14

What does it mean to “never thirst again”?

What in your life needs to change in order for scripture to set the pace for your life? What are some practical steps you plan on taking? What kind of accountability do you need to make that happen?

If you are going through these questions as an individual, spend some time going over your notes or writing down any thoughts or questions that stand out from the message this weekend.



Main Thought: Paid In Full Means Paid In Full

If you could have one debt or obligation paid in full and gone tomorrow, what would it be?

What do you think Jesus meant when he said, “it is finished”?

The Greek word for “it is finished” is “tetelestai”. It means “it is completely paid in full and always will be.” What does that mean for us?

Doug talked about that when Jesus died on the cross the “enemy” was defeated. Who is this enemy? What does it mean that that the enemy is defeated? If he is defeated why is there still so much evil in the world?

What do you know about Holy Week?
What are some of the events that took place during Holy Week?

How do we walk through Holy Week? How does it go from information that we learn to surrendering to the power of the cross?

Read Luke 23:46

Do you struggle with surrender?

Do you feel stronger when you surrender?

Do you believe that your circumstances don’t define you?

How do you think you go about finding your identity in Christ?
