Jesus the Carpenter

BIG IDEA:
We can bring anything to Jesus because he can relate to everything.


QUESTION 1
Has someone ever told you a story that you couldn’t relate to?

Let this question be the icebreaker and welcome funny stories.


QUESTION 2
Have you ever had a need you thought God didn’t understand or couldn’t relate with?

Let this lead to real talk about emotional, social, or physical pain.


QUESTION 3

HEBREWS 4:15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.

Can you name some ways Jesus understands us relationally?

He was a student of a trade then ran a carpentry business. He had friends and family doubt him, leave him, and hurt him.


QUESTION 4
What are some things we need to talk to Jesus about?

Transition these answers to prayer.
