MESSAGE RECAP

That Church | People Are Our Passion

We believe in HOPE for the whole person: physically, emotionally, spiritually, and relationally. That hope is offered to those in God’s family and those who have yet to join.

Passion is more than “strong emotion”. It’s something you would give up everything for, even your own life. There’s not much that we could say we’re passionate enough to die for, but the one thing that Jesus was clearly passionate about was people. When it comes to being as passionate about people as Jesus was, we start by realizing how much He loves us.

Discussion Questions:

  1. What thoughts and emotions come up when you hear the word “passion”?
  2. Who is someone in your life that gave you hope when you needed it?
  3. Is there someone that you know who really lives like “people are their passion”?
  4. Who is someone that you can share hope with this week?
