We all love movies. From superheroes to childhood classics, there’s something about movies that capture our imagination and make us feel “all the feels.” And when you experience that with other people… it’s even better! That’s why, this summer, we’re inviting you to At The Movies. Each Sunday we’ll focus on a different movie to see how they offer opportunities to engage with the life-changing love of Jesus.

Start Talking

  • Are you a Marvel or DC fan?
  • Where in culture do you see people asking the question “Am I Worthy?” 
  • Where would you say most people find their worth?
  • Tell us about a season where you had a hard time determining your worth. What made this time difficult? What or who helped you during this time?
  • How would you say ‘ lack of worth’ and shame are connected?

Digging Deeper

  • Have you experienced shame in your life? How have you dealt with it?
  • Jeff posed this question on Sunday:
    • How do I walk in a way that deals with the reality of who I am, my brokenness and yet not walk around in shame, hiding, secretly frustrated with the me I am?  Where can I find a healthy balance walking in the reality of my imperfections but knowing that I have a King who says that I am worthy of the Kingdom?
  • Talk about how you would answer this question if a friend were asking.

Read This

Read Revelation 5:1-14

  • Is this the first time you have read from Revelation?
  • What stands out to you?
  • How would you summarize the point of these verses? What does this mean for us?
  • What makes Jesus worthy to open the scroll?
  • How does being in relationship with Jesus  give us worth?

What Now?

  • What, if anything in your life makes you feel ashamed?
  • Is it easy for you to believe that God’s sacrifice for you covers your shame/guilt?
  • What do you need to do this week to stop walking in the shame of your past or current circumstances? What truth do you need to believe?
  • Perhaps it’s not you who struggles with shame, but rather, someone you love. What can you specifically do this week to remind them of who and what defines their worth?
