Desperate For an Encounter (Luke 5:17-26)


  1. How did the man and his friends demonstrate their desperation for Jesus? When have you been desperate for Jesus? What did you learn from the sermon about how to cultivate desperation for Jesus?

  2. What did it cost the man and his friends to go to Jesus? What will it cost you to be desperate for Jesus? Do you struggle to be willing to pay that cost? Why?

  3. In what way did the paralyzed man and his friends get more than they expected from Jesus? In what ways have you seen Jesus’ love and care for your physical and spiritual exceed your expectations?

  4. What was the helpful/challenging/encouraging part of the sermon for you?
