Joining Together Around God’s Word | 05

Written By Christ Community Staff

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. What did you love about your practice of this week?

    2. How do you think people tend to view authority figures in our culture? What about you personally?
    3. Over what or whom does Luke 20 claim Jesus has power? Why does this make the scribes and Pharisees so angry? Hint: What do verses 41-44 say about Jesus’ power and station?
    4. Luke 20 is filled with different arguments that the religious establishment of his day tried to use to escape Jesus’ authority. What are some of the ways people seek to escape Jesus’ authority over their lives today?
    5. If the Pharisees were here today, what questions would they ask to try to trap Jesus?

Meditating on God’s Word | Luke 21:1-4

MEDITATE ON GOD’S WORD – Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.” | Luke 21:1-4
