Lead Question for each section:
What stood out to you from the video segment? Any favorite quotes? Anything confuse you?
Read: John 2:23-24 from a couple of different translations.
Section 1 - HCSKL 2011 - Day 1 - (1:50:41 to 1:55:45) - Identity from others
1:52:30 - How can it be said that Jesus didn't "commit Himself" to the people and yet was committed enough to die for them?
1:53:00 - How do we try to draw identity and our sense of worth from others? Examples please. Where should our sense of identity and worth be coming from?
Section 2 - HCSKL 2011 - Day 10 - (2:26:54 to 2:35:22) - Offense & expectations - Go buttonless
2:27:45 - "He (satan) knows just where to push. He knows what determines your joy, your encouragement... He knows. And all of the sudden he is pressing. We've got to get to the place where we grow in love to where there is nothing to push or if he pushes it, it's out of order." - What is that "place" and how do we grow into it? What has to change?
2:28:30 - How is it possible to live without offense towards others? Is it possible to live without expectation on others? How is that possible?
2:29:30 - Rather than expect from other people what are we called to do? Where are we to be loved from? Is it possible for me to love you, when at the same time I am placing expectations on you?
Section 3 - HCSKL 2010 - Day12 - (2:00:35 to 2:09:14) - Why are you so hurt?
2:01:45 - How does the gospel change the effects of sin committed against you? How does that change happen?
2:03:00 - How do you see someone that has committed sin against you, when you begin to become love?
2:07:00 - Why does a change of perspective put us in a stronger position than just having God breathe on emotional pain to remove it?
2:08:20 - If Jesus has overcome the world (John 16:33), why do we still have trouble? How will we get to the place where we overcome?
In what sense is Jesus the ultimate example of the kind of love we are talking about? Did he have any ulterior motive of needing something from men? In what ways did He commit Himself to us - show that He loved us?
