Community Meditation Questions

Growing in Knowledge

  • Review the section “God of the Gospel” from the Jacob’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 Moses’ mediation brought renewal of the covenant, how do you think God will treat us in light of Jesus’ mediation for us?

Living with Courage

  • In what ways do you need your love for God revived? What does a new sense of God’s faithfulness give to us? How does this affect our mission together?
