Growth Guide: Born Again
Growth Guide: (John 3:3) ( Acts 2:41-47) 1) Read together John 3:3. Discuss the story of Nicodemus. Why did Jesus tell him that a man must be born again to enter into heaven? Nicodemus was a bible scholar, and yet he did not understand this important life changing truth. Today I want you to think more closely about your relationship to Jesus. Do you know Him personally? If you do, then He commands you to follow Him. Knowing Him personally is the first step in your journey to following Him. At Community Heights we have developed a process we call the "Discipleship journey" This is a simple tool we use to help us grow in our relationship to God. 2) Read together Acts 2:41-47. What are some main points that you see in these verses? These verses are written specifically to Followers of Jesus. Discuss the "Discipleship Journey" and how these verses relate to this process. GATHERING- (Sunday morning worship) A time to be encouraged and equipped. GROW- (Maturity) small groups, deepening relationships (Koinonia) Give- (Time, talent, treasure) serving, using your ability and resources for Him. Go- The mission of sharing Jesus everywhere.

3) Jesus was constantly moving and walking. He was also always in the moment. Where are you right now in your relationship with Him? Are you actively involved in all four steps in the Discipleship Journey? If not, why?
