Joining Others around God’s Word | 02

Author: Holy Scripture

Take a moment to recite the Lord’s prayer, either quietly or out loud.

If you desire to pray further, you may use this prayer as a model, and expand upon the idea found in each individual line by praying that it would be realized in specific ways in your world and context.

And he said to them, “When you pray, say: 
                  “Father, hallowed be your name. 
                  Your kingdom come. 
                  Give us each day our daily bread, 
                  and forgive us our sins, 
                   for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us. 
                  And lead us not into temptation.”
Luke 11:2–4 (ESV)


After listening to Sunday’s sermon, you may have lingering questions or ideas. Part of walking with Jesus means that we walk with others who follow Jesus, and it is often beneficial to sort through these lingering thoughts together. The following questions have been designed to help you more deeply consider what Sunday’s message may mean for your life with God, with other believers, and with your neighbors.


Conversation Starters

1) Which daily practice of has resonated with you the most so far?

2) Luke tells us that Jesus taught this parable because some thought the kingdom would “appear immediately” (see verse 11). How does the parable challenge that assumption? What other assumptions does the parable challenge about our view of Jesus’ kingdom? 

3) If Jesus showed up and gave you a progress report on how you were leveraging your time, talent, and treasure during this pandemic, what would He say? Where are you excelling? Where are you struggling? 

4) What is one part of your life (work, time, money, etc.) that you want to leverage even more for Jesus’ kingdom? What is your next step to make that happen?
