Study Questions

  1. When have you felt most overwhelmed by the needs of your family? What about other people? How would you describe the limits of your personal "bandwidth" for meeting the needs of others?
  2. Read Mark 1:29-37, 45. How would you characterize Jesus' bandwidth, as a man, for ministry? If bandwidth was a concern for Jesus, how much more should it be a concern for us and Lakeside leaders?
  3. How did Jesus address his bandwidth challenge on the front end of his ministry (Read Mark 1:16-20, Mark 2:13-14, Mark 3:7-12, Mark 3:13-19)? How can we achieve greater bandwidth as a church?
  4. Read Mark 3:13-19. By what criteria did Jesus select disciplemaking leaders? How did Jesus speak into their potential? Why was it important for Jesus, and us, to lead with people we enjoy?
  5. Read Mark 3:20-30. Why is unity such a big deal in the church? In what ways are we united in the disciple-multiplying priorities of Jesus? In what ways do our personal needs and concerns divide or distract us from Jesus' mission?
  6. Read Mark 3:31-35. In what ways can we sometimes value relationships at the expense of God's will?
  7. How can we better respond when the expectations of people (i.e. friends, loved ones, spouse, children, workplace) are at odds with God's will for your life?
  8. What boundaries do we need to put in place as leaders and disciples to give greater priority/bandwidth to the disciple-multiplying mission of Jesus?
