Community Meditations

Know

  • Discuss the way the Bible uses the term to “know” someone? Did the people referenced in Matthew 7:21-23 know nothing about Jesus? What was missing? How can we not find ourselves in the same place?
  • Jesus uses the phrase “that day” in his warning? What does this refer to? What will that day be like according to Old and New Testament teaching? Read & discuss this article: bible.org/article/basic-introduction-day-lord-old-testament-writing-prophets

Feel

  • What sort of emotions does the judgment of God in the final day evoke in you?
  • How are you receiving the warnings about false prophets in Matt 7? What feelings are provoked when you read his warning?

Live

  • Pray and ask God “where can I be doing your will Father?” In this Lenten season and leading up to Easter Sunday?
  • What people can you encourage to follow Jesus and his path?
  • Why is knowing Jesus superior to merely doing religious acts? Are there any dangers associated with an obsession with mighty works and miracles ?
