The Mustard Seed
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 Mustard Seed with your small group and allow time for reflection and observation after the film is finished.
Step 2 Read
Read Mark 4:30-32 and Matthew 28:18-20 out loud with your group and allow time for reflection and observation of the passage of Scripture.
Step 3 Ask questions
- Jesus often taught about the Kingdom of God. What is it and why is it so important?
- In Mark 4, Jesus teaches that the Kingdom of God grows. What is the most tangible way it grows today? Consider Matthew 28.
- Matthew 28 reveals that the Kingdom grows by baptizing and teaching others. What’s your response to this? Fear, joy, hope, etc.?
- In Matthew 28:20, Jesus promises to be with us to the end of the age. How does this free you to help grow God’s Kingdom?
