Community Meditation

Growing in knowledge

  • Read John 1:29-34 and Matthew 11:1-11. Why do you think John the Baptist was having questions about Jesus in the last days of his life?
  • What message does Jesus send to John?  Why?
  • What can we take from Jesus’ message to John for our own dark hours?

Feeling life deeply

  • Have you ever felt afraid to follow Jesus in his mission?
  • What does the flashback about John tell us about following Jesus?  What is it about loving people and extending hope through the gospel  that seems risky?

Living  with courage

  • How does our identity in Christ and our eternal security allow us to take risks and start trouble for the Kingdom of darkness?
