COMMUNITY MEDITATION

Know

  • Review 1 Corinthians 3. Identify in your own life or others where you’ve seen the process of spiritual growth (cultivation, planting, watering, harvesting). What are some of your observations?
  • What are some things that can block spiritual growth?

Feel

  • Read again Revelation 7 :9-12. What do you feel as you read this?
  • Take some time to research what God is doing in other parts of the world in and through the Church. Does what you find encourage or discourage you?
  • Pray for believers in another country this week.

Live

  • Review the passages on Spiritual Gifts (Eph 4:11, Rom 12:6-8, 1 Cor 12:8-10, 28-30)
  • How are you utlizing your natural abilities and spirtual gifts for God’s Kingdom?
  • If you’re part of an MC here at Jacob’s Well, how can you use God’s gifts in your life more actively?
  • As part of the local church here at Jacob’s Well, we always highlight that we are volunteer-driven in that we ask everyone to share their gifts and talents to serve others each and every week. Are there areas that you could/should serve in that you aren’t currently? What’s stopping you from serving in this capacity?
