Community Meditation Questions

Growing in knowledge

  • Why is it important to see how “Jesus is the answer” to life’s deep questions?
  • Different people wrestle with different things during the course of life. Why might it be important to be well equipped in connecting people’s questions to the gospel?

Feeling life deeply

  • How much do you center your life on the kingdom and mission of Jesus? Or is Jesus an “add on” to what really makes you happy?
  • Do you care if other people become Christians? Do you pray or think about this regularly? Why or why not?

Living with courage

  • What do you do in life if you want to improve or get better at something? How can we work at becoming better witnesses to the gospel? 
  • What friends in New Jersey can we engage with the good news of Jesus? How can you become better equipped to do so?  How can you be reminded to seek opportunities to share the gospel with others?
