Discussion Questions:

  1. How often do you ask yourself the questions: "Why am I here?", "What is the 'center' of my life?" & "What defines, directs & drives me?" If you do, what conclusions do you come to?

  2. What influences shape your answers?

  3. How important is it to ask these questions? What consequences come from NOT asking them?

  4. How close do your desired answers line up with your actual life? Why?

  5. "We are here to love & be loved by God" How does that statement set with you? How accurate do you think it is? How foundational is it to understanding why we are here?

  6. Some ideas were given, but how can we grow in our love with God? Why is this called "discipleship"?

  7. What obstacles keep you from growing in your relationship with God? How can you address them?
