SERMON NOTES


RADICAL: Very different from the usual or traditional, extreme.

Bottom Line:
Following a radical Savior requires radical boldness.

Luke 9:23 NLT

Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross daily, and follow me..

 John 6:38 NLT
For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.

1. Boldness requires selflessness.

2. Boldness requires getting uncomfortable.

3. Boldness requires sacrificial risk.


1 John 3:16 NLT
We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.

DISCUSSION GUIDE

Start Talking
  • When have you seen someone be radical or bold and it led you to do the same thing or to be bold or radical in your own way because of their example?

Start Thinking 
  • Read Luke 9:23. How is being a follower of Jesus so much more - and different - from simply believing in Jesus? How would you explain that to someone else?

  • Read John 6:38. How did Jesus show that being bold requires getting uncomfortable? How did Jesus show that being bold requires being selfless? What other examples from the New Testament come to mind that show each of these?

Start Sharing
  • Read 1 Corinthians 11:1. Who has set an example for you in the way they have radical boldness like Jesus? What has it led you to do that you may not have otherwise done?

  • Read 1 John 3:16. When have you experienced someone being willing to take a bold risk in this way? How did Cinderella’s story most impact you and how did it challenge you?

Start Doing
  • What is a bold risk that you feel like God could be leading you to take? How will it help you to be more like Jesus in the way he was radical and bold?

  • When you think about sharing your story with someone else wherever you live, work, or play, which of the three points about being bold is most difficult for you? Getting uncomfortable, being selfless, or taking a sacrificial risk?

Start Praying
  • Pray that God gives each person the boldness to live out what we've talked about today.
