Sunday Service Follow Up – 01.26.2020
This past Sunday, we continued in our new sermon series in 1 Peter 2, “Political Christians.” Given that politics is a discipleship issue we want this chapter of Scripture to equip us to think, live, and love rightly at the intersection of politics and discipleship. Expositing verses 11-12, Tab showed us the challenge and opportunity before us as “sojourners and exiles” living in this world.
Below you will find questions to help you respond to God’s word with your hearts and your lives, so that you might become more like Christ.
Discussion and Response Questions
Read 1 Peter 2:11-12 and consider the questions below:
- In what specific ways are you tempted to give into the “passions of the flesh” right now, especially in regard to your political engagement? How can we as a group help you here?
- With our conduct we either attract the culture to Christ or confuse the culture about Christ. Would those outside the church say your conduct is honorable (beautiful), especially with how you engage in the political sphere?
- Where is your opportunity to show convictional kindness to non-believers right now?
Spend some time praying as a group for these specific opportunities, especially that others may see our good works and glorify God.
