The Cross-Shaped Life: Farewell Words – Upper Room Discourse – John 16 & 17 With Courtney Doctor

Begin preparing your heart for Easter now. Courtney Doctor joins Karen Hodge to encourage us to enter into John 16 & 17. Courtney reminds us of the hope of the Gospel, that the promises of Christ really are true and for today!

Discussion Questions:

  • What important clues do you get from the context of these verses?
  • What hard things does Jesus say are to come?
  • How does Jesus speak into those hard things promising the fruit of the Spirit in spite of their circumstances?
  • How does the promise of God’s love change the way we look at our circumstances?
  • How do you see Christ inviting you to respond to this passage?
