What is the gospel? 

Why is it so difficult for people to concisely understand what the gospel is?

Why is it important that we get the gospel right?

What are some practical ways that the gospel informs our everyday lives?

How is “surrendering our lives to Jesus” different from our commonly held cultural understanding of Christianity? (By cultural, think about the north Atlanta area).

How did the text speak of the glory that is to come?

If we keep glory at the forefront of our vision, how does that change how we live today?

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

Talk about a time when someone shared a difficult truth with you. Did you immediately receive that truth with humility? 

How have you benefited from someone else pointing out something in your life?

Why do we often not take the time to share something that someone else needs to hear?

Should we share every truth we see in another persons’ life? How do we know when to point something out and when to remain silent?

How can we become better listeners?

Discussion Questions

-Take a moment to read Northside’s belief’s statement (http://www.gonorthside.com/webelieve). Do you have any questions about these? 

-What are some of the reasons that Paul was addressing head coverings with the Corinthians? 

-We don’t have “dress codes” at Northside, but what do you think is proper attire for worship? What would be “improper”?

-What is your general posture toward authority? (In regards to God’s authority over all, authority that God has given to elders and pastors in the church, and the authority that God has given husbands over their families?) Where have you seen or experienced authority used properly? 

-Read 11:17-34 - What does this passage say about the meaning of communion?

-Does it address anything about communion that you haven’t known or recognized before? 

-What does it mean to take communion in an “unworthy manner”, and how you think we should “examine ourselves”?
