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 Danger of Falling Away

Salvation is guaranteed the moment one believes Jesus for it. But becoming a Christian never guarantees that we’ll live like one. Spiritual maturity is not automatic. It requires diligent engagement with Jesus if we hope to change and grow. In the third of five...

Beware of Your Unbelief

Even Christians can be people of unbelief. Given tempting circumstances, we might cave under pressure and cease to follow God wholeheartedly. This certainly was the case with the children of Israel who took a major detour of unbelief while on their journey to the land...

Pay Careful Attention

Like other people, there’s a chance you have entertained thoughts about returning to an easier, more comfortable way of life—one that pushes God aside. When the pressure is on, even Christians can become disillusioned with following Jesus. The book of Hebrews is...
