What if Everything We’ve Always Believed About Small Groups Was Wrong?

What if everything we’ve always believed about small groups was wrong?

What if we have it all backwards?

What if the model for discipleship is actually something other than sitting in a circle, answering an icebreaker, studying the Bible (hook, book, look, and took) or watching a DVD, and taking prayer requests?

What if we were to go and make disciples (or, more accurately, make disciples as we go) in community rather than meeting in someone’s living room?

What if we were to teach people to obey everything Jesus commanded us, rather than just teaching them curriculum material?

What if our model looked more like Jesus’ (ministering first and then debriefing, taking advantage of teachable moments to learn)?

Just wondering. What do you think?

One Thought to “What if Everything We’ve Always Believed About Small Groups Was Wrong?”

  1. Jim M.

    I believe everything Jesus commanded was summed up with two commands: love God with all your being and love your fellow man.

    His ministry was to commune with His Father, see what His father did and said, and then do and speak the same.

    When John's disciple were sent to ask if He was the Messiah, Jesus had them wait and watch for about an hour and "Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me." See Luke 7. Confirming to John the word given in Isaiah 35.

    What proof do we offer that we fellowship with the Father and then do and say what we see Him do and say?
