Not A Fan - Kyle Idleman
Transcript of Not A Fan - Kyle Idleman
Are you a follower of Jesus?
Tendency to dismiss this question, from the perspective of asking and answering.
Luke 7 presents a sobering passage speaks of a day when many who consider themselves to be followers of Jesus will be stunned at his response
What is a fan?
:marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion <they're fanatic about politics>
What is 'Not a Fan'
Exploring the calling of Christians to truely follow
Jesus. This will be an opportunty where we can be open to what Christ has would have to say about your thoughts.
Three elements of the small group study:
Leader's guide - Guiding Curriculum
Six video lessons
Telling the Story
telling your story
is still the theme
Our class is a closed forum - all are welcome
What is discussed here stays here
We gain the most when we share as the Spirit prompts us.
What do you hope to get out this study?
What does the phrase 'not a fan' mean to you?
What does God want from you?
The quickest way to kill authenticity is to judge or
try to fix others.
The objective is not to make others better followers
but to individually challenging ourselves as we journey as disciples.
Fan or Follower?
What are you reminded of or how do you feel after the first episode?
18 And it came to pass, as he was praying apart, the disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Who do the multitudes say that I am? 19 And they answering said, John the Baptist; but others [say], Elijah; and others, that one of the old prophets is risen again. 20 And he said unto them, But who say ye that I am? And Peter answering said, The Christ of God. 21 But he charged them, and commanded [them] to tell this to no man; 22 saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up. 23 And he said unto all, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. 24 For whosoever would save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 25 For what is a man profited, if he gain the whole world, and lose or forfeit his own self?
What do you see in this scripture? (p.16)
Personal Challenge: Where have you been most alive? Describe it. Were you dead to yourself or alive to yourself. (p. 18)
How would you define what happens between you and Jesus? Do you use the term, fan, follower or something else?
How do you feel about your answer?
What are characteristics of a fan?
Confirmation and conviction
What has following Jesus cost you?
Are their any areas of your life that have been or
are off limits to Jesus?
If so ,why? What are your reasons for keeping him out? (p.19)
What was the effect of keeping him out?
If you suddenly died, and family and friends were
asked one thing about you, what do you believe they would say?
When you do die, (hopefully in the distant
future), what would you like people to say
What kind of life, what kind of changes or decisions would it take in your life for people to actually make those kinds of comments about you at the time of your death?
