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: What divisions and labels have you seen coming between Christians? Between people in general?
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise. (Galatians 3:27-29 ESV)
Question: If Paul was writing this today, what common dividing lines do you think he would contrast in order to make the same point? What divides people today?
Question: When have you recognized a new acquaintance to be a Christian? What tipped you off? What about your life would tip off others?
Challenge: Have a cross-cultural experience today. Eat in a restaurant, drop into a store, meet a neighbour, whatever it takes. Ask some questions – what does that mean, what’s this called, etc.
