Read: Mark 4:26-29 from a couple of different translations.
Lead Question for each section:
What stood out to you from the video segment? Any favorite quotes? Anything confuse you?
Section 1 - HCSKL 2011 Day 40 - (2:02:07 to 2:07:38)
2:04:00 - When we step out to love sincerely, why does it sometimes look like what we have done is ineffective?
2:05:00 - How does approaching people with a heart of sowing and watering tend to take the pressure off of us to get some specific result - to get them to pray a prayer? How does that free us to love better?
2:06:00 - How can our lives - the way we conduct ourselves - the attitudes we carry - get in the way of sincerely loving people?
2:10:55 - Why are we "lit up" in the first place? If we, by our own effort, are not trying to shine by just living better, how is the light maintained? What kinds of things are shining through us?
2:14:05 - How has God been sowing into your life? Has He been sowing for a long time? Through many different people?
2:14:20 - Why does God never get frustrated and give up on us? Looking back can you see how God was drawing and wooing you to Himself? As opposed to you, on your own, deciding that it was time to get your act together?
Section 3 - HCSKL 2011 Day 39 - (40:58 to 46:26) - Convicting of sin...
42:00 - When you realize that Holy Spirit is the One who convicts, does that take pressure off of us to carry an agenda to get people convicted of sin? What is our role instead?
45:00 - When we have an agenda to get people saved, in what sense can we actually be working at odds with the kingdom?
46:20 - "If you have an agenda, you are set up to fail. If you love, you can't fail." Agree / disagree? Why or why not?
Bonus - HCSKL 2011 Day 40 - (2:28:16 to 2:29:51)
