1. How have you experienced the truth that being a follower of Jesus means you can change?
What does that look like for you?
2. Talk about the inner changes you’ve experienced as a new creation in Christ. In other words, the way your desires,
affections, and choices have been transformed by the love of God. How have these changes brought joy into your life?
3. According to John 15, our role in staying connected to God is to abide or remain.
What are the things that feed the sense of disconnection from God? Is it sin, disbelief, busyness, or something else?
How can laying those things down strengthen your abiding in Jesus?
4. Talk through the four sermon points that help you keep a connection with Jesus.
Prioritize Connection: what needs to happen this week for you to honestly prioritize your relationship with Jesus?

Uproot Independence: In what areas of your life do your need to surrender your autonomous self and accept the truth that part from Jesus you can do nothing?
- Choose Love: What is one choice you can make this week to choose love and put someone else’s needs before your own?
