For Further Discussion

Look back over chapters 9-11 and find the major events. Discuss how these together led to the events of Chapter 12. Living or abundant life? Put yourself in the shoes of the disciples in these chapters and try to assess what you’d be thinking or planning. What areas or attitudes in your life are hindering “abundance?” Share a single step you could, and are willing, to take to grow from living to LIVING.
