Community Meditation Questions

  • Do you see in yourself a tendency to want to withdraw and isolate yourself from the gospel community? Why is this? Pride? People are difficult?
  • Read 2 Corinthians 1:3-11 together and discuss how both affliction and comfort are a part of God’s purposes for our lives.
  • In what ways have you experienced the comfort of God from his people?
  • Discuss the need to comfort one another AND commit ourselves to sacrificial life and mission in the world. What happens if one or the other is missing from our community?
  • Read together the Jacob’s Well mission statement and five core identities. Pray together for God to make us such a people.
