Are you meeting regularly with a discussion group? If you meet just once a week, you can find all of this week’s discussion questions in one place right here.
Question: If you were going to “test out” a relationship with Jesus, what would you be looking to see him prove?
And when they had brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest questioned them, saying, “We strictly charged you not to teach in this name, yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and you intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.” But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised Jesus, whom you killed by hanging him on a tree. God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.” When they heard this, they were enraged and wanted to kill them. (Acts 5:27-33 ESV)
Question: Through these events, what are the council, and people like you and I, learning about the Christian movement? What words can describe them?
Question: What do you think this proves for us today?
Challenge: Not sure about Jesus? Give him a try! Pray and ask him sincerely to enter your life, transform your heart, and forgive you of your sin, all those things you’ve done to hurt yourself, others and God. You may not feel an instant change, but give it some time. Tell someone. I’d love to hear from you, but also tell someone you know who is a follower of Jesus. Then find a way to continue learning with them. Join a small group discussing our daily challenges, or studying the Bible. One meets Tuesday nights in Whitby, there is information on our web site if you’d like to come, or you are always welcome to start your own discussion group with friends.
Reading and studying God’s own words will transform you like nothing else.
