COMMUNITY MEDITATION

KNOW

  • How is the public ministry of the Scriptures vital to the life of a Christian? How is this neglected today? Spoken against? Why are both the gathered and sent aspects of the church important?
  • Read the three main New Testament passages on Spiritual Gifts. 1 Corinthians 12, Ephesians 4:11-16 and Romans 12:1-8. How do you sense God has place any of these upon your life? What would others say?

FEEL

  • Do you feel too young, not well equipped or lacking in what God is calling you to do in life? What can you do about this? How can you devote yourself to these things? Moving forward?

LIVE

  • Do you sense that God has gifted you to do certain things in building up his church? Living out Jesus’ ministry and mission? Are you neglecting these gifts? How can you use them in your MC? On a Sunday team? With friends and family?
