The Light of the World—Extending the Presence of God

Growing in Knowledge
- Discuss the importance of the Holy of Holies. What did it represent? Why was the priest only allowed to enter once a year? Why was he allowed to enter at all? What does all this tell us about God and about humanity?
Feeling Life Deeply
- Read Hebrews 10:18-25. What does this passage teach us about Jesus? What does it instruct us to do? How might you apply these things in your own life?
Living with Courage
- Read Matthew 5:13-16. Discuss the metaphors of salt and light. What does it look like for us to lose our saltiness? What does it look like for us to put our lights on a stand? What is most challenging to you in this passage?
- Do you see yourself as someone who bears the very presence of God in this world? Why or why not? What would change if you took that reality seriously this week in your home, at your job, at our Sunday gatherings?
