Community Meditation

Growing in Knowledge

  • Read the narratives we looked at from Acts 4 and 5. How does Jesus’ Lordship in the life of the apostles show up in this story? What did they take risk in order to do?
  • Why do you think they were so courageous in the face of personal peril and opposition? See 4:13, 31.
  • Romans 13 commands us to obey governing authorities, here the apostles did not obey. Why? How does this guide our own submission to God and government?
  • In Acts 4:25, 26 we see the apostolic community quote from Psalm 2. Read this Psalm together. How does God respond to the little Kings of the earth?

Feeling Life Deeply

  • A King provides, protects and leads his people. Which of these aspects of Jesus’ character are you most drawn towards? Which are difficult for you to believe/accept/experience?
  • It is easy for many Christians to think Jesus “saved them” long ago when they prayed a prayer, were baptized, made a commitment etc. We need to acknowledge our dependence upon our Savior every day. In what ways can you live “dependently” on our Savior King?

Living with Courage

  • In the Great Commission (see Matthew 28:18-20) Jesus tells us that “all authority” has been given to him. How does this effect our obedience to his call on our lives?
