Discussion Questions: Week of May 31, 2020

This week’s discussion questions are based on the Gospel found at John 20:19-23

  • The Apostles were emboldened to spread the Gospel, not on their own, but through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Has anyone ever asked you what exactly is the Holy Spirit?  How did (or how would) you answer? 

  • In the Gospel, Jesus tells the disciples, “As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”  How does this apply to your life?  What does a disciple look like?  How does a disciple live?  Do you think we tend to make this answer complicated?  Explain.

  • As we celebrate Pentecost, take some time to reflect on the gift of the Holy Spirit in your life. How do you see the Holy Spirit at work in you? How about other people in your group?

  • With the gift of the Holy Spirit, the disciples were transformed from withdrawn and scared men into brave and proclaiming witnesses. What does this tell us about the power of the Holy Spirit? Are you different when you are confident that the Spirit is with you?  

  • In your own life, do you tend to see the Holy Spirit as a dynamic and constant companion or only an occasional one?
