1. Week 1 : It’s always good to pause and reflect on the journey that’s taken you to the present moment. At this midpoint of our series called ‘Saturate’ we’re doing just that. What is the big idea behind ‘Saturate’ (Hab. 2:14; Eph. 1:22-23)? How does it relate to the goal of having “every man, woman, and child in every place having a daily encounter with Jesus”? Discuss our three-part salvation we learned about in week one – we have been , are being , and will be saved.
2. Week 2 : We learned about the impact of missional communities in week 2. How does being in a vulnerable life-on-life relationship and learning from one another’s strengths in the community of the church help you fill everything everywhere with Jesus?
3. Week 3 : Three of Saturate’s eight weeks are devoted to our new identity as a follower of Jesus. Vanderstelt strongly emphasizes in these weeks that “our identity informs everything we do.” What does he mean by that? Have you found this to be the case in your life? How is our adoption into God’s family (Rom. 8:14-17) an especially powerful identity-forming event ( remember Julie’s testimony! )?
4. Week 4 : In week 4 we learned that as King Jesus “came not to be served, but to serve” (Mark 10:45), so we too, as His followers, are called to the upside-down, the last shall be first, servant identity . Amy Carmichael, missionary to India in the early 1900s, embraced her servant identity. Above the desk in her room, she had the words from Mark 9:35 etched in wood: SERVANT OF ALL. How would your day to day life change if you entered every situation with the mentality, “I am a servant of all.”
