Joining Together Around God’s Word | 07
Written By Christ Community Staff
Take a moment to recite the Lord’s prayer, either quietly or out loud.
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.
- What surprised you about your practice of theFormed.life this week? What was difficult?
- How does Jesus’ institution of the Lord’s Supper connect us to the “new covenant” (Luke 22:20)?
- When confronted with the dissonance between Jesus’ character made known through the elements of the Lord’s Supper and the apostles who jockey for power in the kingdom, what do you feel? (e.g. frustration with the apostles, identification with the apostles, awe of Jesus, sadness for how close we can be to Jesus and still be so far from His heart)
- How is Luke 22:24-30 good news to us?

Take time to reread Philippians 1:12-30 from Sunday. Review your notes. What is God bringing back to mind from His Word?
Evening Prayer – How you end your day impacts rest and rejuvenation for the next. God’s people throughout history have practiced a surrendering of all things in prayer before they laid down to sleep. While we zero in on the discipline of prayer, each Sunday we will engage in two prayers, allowing the repetition to help us be at home in these prayers.
Morning Prayer – How you start your day informs how you go about your day. Throughout history, God’s people rose early to focus their heart, soul, mind and strength in prayer with God. While we zero in on the discipline of prayer, each Sunday we will engage in two prayers, allowing the repetition to help us be at home in these prayers.
