The Conversation

  • What did you write on your first name tag? What are some things that you've done or that happened to you that led to you writing that?

  • [Hand out the new name tags.] Now, after hearing the message, who would you say you are? [Give them 60 seconds to write their new label on their name tag. Do this with them to lead by example.]
    • What does your new name tag say? Why did you write that?
  • [Read John 1:45–46.] What does this passage make you thnk about, and why?
    • What would you want people to say about you if they were to “come and see” for themselves?
  • If you’re a Christian, what’s your story? What was your life like before you started following Jesus? What caused you to start following Jesus? How is your life different because of Jesus?

  • If you’re not a Christian what’s your story? What is your life like right now? What changes do you want to see in your life?
