ASL Interpretation

How do we build for the future when the future seems so uncertain? This week, we’ll turn to Acts 2 to see how the early church began as a model for how we can continue to build the future of the Church together. As we follow their lead, we not only participate in building for the future, we may also find some stability as we live in an uncertain time.

Discussion Questions

How do you stay connected to the church community, especially now during the quarantine? What technology has helped you stay connected?

Even though the future may be uncertain, what are things we can do in the present that will shape our future?

Read Galatians 5:22. As you read through the fruit of the Spirit, what are some ways you’ve experienced those things during this time? How can you impart those things to others?

What some people call boredom, we might see an opportunity to engage God in silence and solitude. What are some ways you use quiet to “Encounter the Builder.”

As you spend time in prayer this week, write down things that come to mind you feel God may be telling you. What is He leading you to do today that might have an impact on the future?

The Glory of God

The glory of God can seem like a confusing idea. The Bible makes a big deal of it, even making it a matter of life and death. But we tend not to think about it very much. What exactly is God’s glory? What if understanding and seeking God’s glory dramatically changes...

Bought with a Price

No one makes Christ Lord; He is Lord. So, it goes without saying that His lordship extends over the life of every person. Whether or not we acknowledge His lordship is another matter altogether. The price paid for the sins of all was a high price indeed—the death of...

Jesus, the Head of the Church

Every person in every church and every pastor should never forget a singular, irreplaceable truth: Jesus is the head of the church. Jesus is first in everything. Get that priority confused and you invite the disintegration of what’s most important usually replaced by...

Raised to Life

No other event is more central to our finding and following Jesus than His resurrection. Without it, the Christian faith is just wishful thinking. But if Christ is raised from the dead, that changes everything. Because Jesus lives so can you! You can be raised to a...
