This discussion guide is meant to be used as a simple, three-step tool to help your small group dive deeper into God’s Word, nurture conversation, and draw your group nearer to Christ. As a leader, begin your group in prayer by asking the Holy Spirit to lead your discussion.
Step 1 Watch
Watch The Call with your small group and allow time for reflection and observation after the film is finished.
Step 2 Read
Read Matthew 11:27-30 out loud with your group and allow time for reflection and observation of the passage of Scripture.
Step 3 Ask questions
- In verse 28, Jesus talks about those “who labor and are heavy laden”. Does that describe you? Why or why not?
- Jesus promises to give those who come to Him rest. How are you striving for rest (joy, peace, etc.) apart from Christ?
- In verse 29, Jesus describes Himself as, “gentle and lowly in heart”. What is your response to this statement?
- What does it look like to “come to” Jesus on a daily basis?
