Joining Together Around God’s Word | 08
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.
- Now that we have been in this rhythm for eight weeks, what impact has theFormed.life had on your daily life?
- Read Luke 22:39-46. Why is this passage significant regarding how we understand the two natures of Christ (divine and human)?
- Consider the agony of Jesus here, especially Luke 22: 42-43. If what motivated Jesus to endure this is the divine love for humanity, consider what it would feel like to experience this unspeakable love? Move beyond what someone else ought to think (even take a few minutes to close your eyes and consider in silence) and consider what you feel at this unspeakable love of Jesus.
- Jesus is anxious in this text. What does the fact that Jesus experiences agonizing anxiety speak into your life?
Submission Week 8 of 8
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.
