Message: “TOGETHER” Part 1, by Pastor Jon Whisner, Sunday September 05, 2021
SERIES DESCRIPTION: God’s plan for His Church is that we do life together in community. Not only does that include gathering corporately together in God’s house for weekly worship (Hebrews 10:25), but it’s more than that. Acts 2 is the beginning of the church age, and it gives us God’s blueprint for how He wants his people to carry out His plan–which includes serving and encouraging one another, helping carry each others’ burdens, and engaging our community with the Gospel.
KEY SCRIPTURE: Acts 2:40-47
TAKE AWAY / APPLICATION: Am I fulfilling God’s plan for His church by being faithfully and actively engaged in my local church?
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your group, or branch off with additional questions as discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure these things out together.
- Read the descriptive and active elements of Acts 2:42-45 and what “togetherness” looks like in a church body (i.e. Bible study, fellowship, prayer, etc.) How has participating in these activities blessed or changed you personally?
- “Now all who believed were together and had all things in common.” (Acts 2:44) Discuss.
- Are there any needs in this group I could be made aware of and help meet?
- Read Matthew 16:18. In this climate of fear and unsettledness all around, God’s sure words for His church give us comfort and confidence. Encourage one another with examples you see and know of how God is working and moving in your family, work, church, community.
September Memory Verse: PSALM 119:9-11 How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.
