SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY


Weekly Discussion Questions to assist in your time together are listed below.


_____________________________

"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." Acts 2:42

____________________________


Fellowship isn't just something we do on Sunday mornings. It's gathering together in various groups to discuss Scripture, enjoy each others' company, support each other, share meals, and pray with and for one another. And while we do these things in many ways in our whole-church Sunday gatherings, meeting together through the week in smaller groups allows us to do this in a more intimate setting, allowing us to grow deeper in our relationships with each other and with God.


If you would like to know more about the small groups, please feel free to contact the leaders directly, or you can talk to a pastor or elder, a person who attends a group, or someone in the office.

Small Group Discussion Questions

April 17, 2018

Reflect

  • What jumped out to most in today’s sermon on 3 John 1:1-4? Why?
  • Is what happens in a local church of more significance than what meetings the President of the United States has? How does that impact your investment in fulfilling the church’s mission?

Repent

  • Being committed to God’s cause without being committed to God’s people?
  • Lack of engagement and partnership with love, truth, and joy?

Remember

  • What potential in Christ exists in the local church?
  • According to Paul, how should we define fellowship? (Rom. 15:26; Phil.1:3-5). In his Philippians Commentary, Basics for Believers, NT scholar D. A. Carson defines fellowship as, “self-sacrificing conformity to the gospel.” In other words, we roll up our sleeves and get involved in the advance of the gospel. How does/should this change your perspective of biblical “fellowship?”
  • According to 3 John 1-4, what ingredients make for a healthy strategic partnership?
  • According to 3 John, consider all the ways John expresses/demonstrates his love for Gaius?
  • According to 3 John, what binds the mission together? How does the exclusivity of Christ (there is no other way of salvation) prompt mission?
  • According to 3 John 3-4, what causes joy in ministry? Where is their “joy” in your ministry?

Discipleship

  • How might your daily life be different if you consider our ministry partners a source of joy?
  • How do we practically help our missionaries not feel like orphans?
  • How do you actively support in love, truth, and joy? 
  • Do you invest yourself in other people? 
  • If you are not working for the good of others, how will you ever have the motivation to send them out? 
  • Do you care for others? If you don’t, how do you think you will ever grow in them what they need to develop? 
  • Do you have joy in others? Do you model that for those that you influence? Do you disciple other people?
