Community Meditation Questions

  • What would be the results of a community which obsessed about sin but not about Jesus? What sort of balance does Paul give us in his exhortations to “Put off” and “Put on” in Colossians?
  • Where are some areas where you have seen God’s transforming work in your life? What areas still need to see the old self die?
  • To whom do you need to repent and ask their forgiveness?  Who do you currently need to forgive?  Are you holding a grudge or complaint against anyone currently?  Someone against you?
  • Read together Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 5:21-26.  What is Jesus saying here? Why is reconciliation so needed yet at times  prove so difficult?
  • The Christian community should be a community of peace, grace and forgiveness….sometimes it is NOT.  Why? Discuss.
