Here are a number of questions for discussion in families or in Redemption Community small groups. For more information about RCs, click here.

1. What do you think it would have felt like to overhear Jesus pray?

2. Why would Jesus be so concerned about God’s glory and mission? How are these two things connected?

3. John 17 showed us who Jesus is (the divine Son of God), what eternal life is (knowing Christ), what sets us apart (commitment to the truth of God’s word), and what holds us together (our union with Christ). Why are all four of these things crucial for being a church that honors God?

4. How would you describe the role you’re currently playing in God’s mission? What is encouraging and discouraging along the way?
