One Mission - Get It

Get It!

The focus of this day is to understand that in order to GET a Mission in life, you must understand what truth is and where you can find it.


Fill out the following “Press Guide” with the top five things that are true about you (height, weight, position, favorite sport, favorite food, year in school, hobbies, number in family, etc.)

Share these things with a partner and discuss how you know the statements are true.


Describe the smartest/best coach that you’ve ever known. What did he/she teach you? How did you know that what they were teaching you was true? Describe a time where you got yourself into trouble and you tried to it cover it up. What happened? Was the truth discovered? How did you feel? How about when you got into trouble and tried to do the right thing? What happened? Could you change the truth?

Group 1

Read John 18:37, 38

Jesus says, “…I have come into this world to testify to the __________.”

Pilate asked, “What is ____________?”

What was Pilate asking? Why do you suppose he asked this? How do you know something is true? What if your friends would not agree? What if anybody disagrees? How do you determine what is true?

Group 2

Read John 8:32

“If you hold to my ___________…you will know the ____________ and the _______________will set you _______________.”

According to this verse, what does truth do? What does someone have to do to know the truth? Have you ever seen the truth set someone or something free? How does it set someone free?

Group 3

Read John 16:13

“When the Spirit of ___________ comes, he will ___________ you into all _________________.”

According to this passage, who is our guide in truth? Are we left by ourselves to determine truth?

John 14:6

“I am the way, ___________truth and the life.”

What does Jesus say truth is in this verse? How can a person be truth? How do you know what truth is?

Truth can only be known by knowing the Author of truth. No single person is able to understand all that is true. Jesus understood this and tells His followers that truth is known by knowing Him. Then He and His Spirit, which lives in those who have a relationship with him, will be their guide.

Cool Down

If you had to put a percentage on how much you GET IT – that is how sure you are that Jesus is the truth what would it be:

0% ------------------------------------------------------------100%

Now, what percentage are you sure that this truth has become your truth:

0% ------------------------------------------------------------100%

Now express to God in a written prayer what is preventing you from being more certain…
