Life Group Discussion Questions

The voices that would cry out the day Jesus entered Jerusalem for the last time, “Hosanna, Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord,” would soon fade away even within hours. Jesus then calls for undivided commitment among His followers and those contemplating following Him.   
At almost every encounter Jesus had, He traveled “Uphill” into adversity. Jesus never lost focus, even with all the tension from the religious world; He knew He needed to reach His destination- the cross! At the top of the hill, Golgotha awaited where He would be nailed to a cross between two thieves. Thankfully, His death brought salvation for all of humanity.    
Life may seem at times like an “Uphill” battle. It doesn’t mean God isn’t with you any less than when you feel like He is with you on the mountaintop. Moses went “Uphill” to receive the ten commandments from God. Jesus took Peter, James, and John “Uphill” to the Mount of transfiguration to reveal His glory to them. The journey up was rocky and uncomfortable, but at the top, a resurrection awaited.
