Community Meditation Questions
Growing in Knowledge
- Review the section â€œGod of the Gospelâ€ from the Jacobâ€™s Well Gospel Class notebook. Or read on our blog at jacobswellnj.org/articles/post/the-attributes-of-god. Have you ever given study to the attributes of God?
- Share with one another some of the attributes of God that you cherish? Read related Scripture together.
- Read the book of Jonah together in the Old Testament. What do you think Jonah was missing about the character of YHWH?
Feeling Life Deeply
- Many times there is a strong tendency to run from God and drop away from the gospel community when we mess up. Why do you think this is?
- In light of Moses response to the sins of Israel, what does God do? If Mosesâ€™ mediation brought renewal of the covenant, how do you think God will treat us in light of Jesusâ€™ mediation for us?
Living with Courage
- In what ways do you need your love for God revived? What does a new sense of Godâ€™s faithfulness give to us? How does this affect our mission together?
