You can use some of these in Growth Groups or alone:

Read through Luke 13:18-21

  • What do you think Jesus is saying about the Kingdom of God through these short parables?
  • What other pictures of growth can you think of? In what ways could they be like (or not like) the Kingdom of God?
  • What things could you do that the world would regard as small or unimportant, but would be great in God’s kingdom?
  • What do you think it means to pray to God ‘Your Kingdom come’?
  • How might you live life differently if you had Jesus’ picture of the Kingdom of God in your mind day-by-day?
  • Describe how would you imagine our church being if the Kingdom of God grew here like the mustard seed or yeast?

What can I pray for?

  • This week is the start of Thy Kingdom Come – an annual 10-day prayer event for churches across the UK. Here are a few ways you can take part:
    • By using the Prayer Journal, which you can find by clicking here
    • By watching the series of videos on the Thy Kingdom Come YouTube channel here
    • By praying for 5 people you know who you would like to come to know Jesus for the first time.
  • Please also pray for the local churches and community here in Glossopdale. There is information about our new joint vision and a simple prayer guide with come suggestions for Thy Kingdom Come here
