Week 4 Conversation

BIG IDEA

Friends aren’t afraid to talk about what they believe.

THE BIBLE

Matthew 16:13–23; 1 Peter 3:15–16

CONVERSATION

  • What is one hot take you have about vacations? Maybe you don’t like roller coasters Or the beach? How did you come to this conclusion? Remember, there are no judgments.
  • Have you ever shared an opinion that wasn’t very popular with your friends? How did it go? What went well? What do you wish went differently?
  • When was the last time you talked about something important to you with a friend who didn’t know much about it? How did they respond?
  • What surprises you in the story of the disciples learning that Jesus is the Messiah?
  • What questions do you have about Jesus’ pretty harsh words for Peter?
  • What would it look like for you to start doing what Peter writes about in 1 Peter 3:15-16?
  • How can you remain curious and open to questions people have about what you believe?
  • If you were going to teach someone what it looks like to be gentle and respectful when talking about your beliefs, what steps would you encourage them to take?
  • Read James 1:19. What holds you back from discussing what you believe with your friends in the way James talks about? How can we support you in addressing this?
  • Who is one person you want to talk about what you believe with this week?
