Community Meditation

 

Growing in Knowledge

  • There are two ways to be intellectually lazy. 1) Being a skeptic who questions all and believes nothing and 2) Being a fool who never examines any beliefs. Do you find yourself drawn to either of these?

Feeling Life Deeply

  • Why do you think Christians are fearful to share the gospel with others? How can a good knowledge of Apologetics undergird and support evangelistic effort and zeal? Discuss also the ministry of the Holy Spirit in our witness to others.
  • 1 Peter 3 is a passage about suffering. Why do you think giving a reason for our hope is important in the context of suffering?

Living with Courage

  • We must engage people with the gospel. We must. What would prevent our family, missional community and church from doing this?
  • Do you need to deepen in your knowledge? Be emboldened to share?
  • It’s not all up to one individual, but a Spirit empowered community engaging together.
