I Love My Shepherd 31 – Chasing Freedom YA Bonus 5:

YA Bonus – Someone gave something up for your freedom

Which topics, religions, world problems, life problems cause you to wonder if Christianity is the right path?

Do you believe Jesus is the only way? Why or why not?

God gives us answers in the Bible, it's Truth written out with blood stained ink by the prophets and early Apostles of the Church. In today's podcast we'll examine Truth with a capital T and it's connection to sacrifice. We'll wrestle with tough questions with no easy answers and one easy answer all at the same time. 

Questions we’ll be addressing:

Is our faith exclusive and what do we do with that?

What is the connection between freedom and sacrifice? Truth and sacrifice?

John 14:6

  • Why do you think people are uncomfortable with the exclusivity of the Gospel?
  • List all the belief systems different from Christianity you can think of.
  • What else do you think comes up in the world that people want “acceptance” for?


Jesus accepted all people, but what does this actually mean…

Look up each of the following passages – how does the message of each help us to understand better both the inclusive and exclusive nature of the Gospel, all at once?

John 8:11

James 4:12, Romans 12:19

Ephesians 4:15


What are the traits/marks people use when they say “good people”?


We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God- Romans 3:23-24

We all like sheep have gone astray – Isaiah 53:6-8


Why is it better, God’s way of saving the world than what any of us would have come up with?



What comfort is there in WHO Jesus is, WHO God is?

Galatians 5:1

Galatians 5:22-23

Galatians 5:25-6:1


Challenge: Pray as a group or individually about whatever makes you uncomfortable about the Gospel.
