Sunday Service Follow Up – 01.20.2019
This past Sunday we began a two-part series called “Imago Dei and Our Day.” We looked at how the image of God (Imago Dei) shapes what we must believe and how we must live in response to two critical issues in our day: the sanctity of human life and racism.
Looking at Genesis 1:26-27, Tab showed us that we must believe that all humans from the moment of conception are made in the image of God; that is they are made more like God than anything else and made to represent God before everything else. In light of this conviction, from James 1:27 we can see how we’re called to care for all human life, especially the vulnerable among us.
Below you will find discussion questions that you can work through individually, as a family, or with other believers.
Discussion and Response Questions
Read Genesis 1:26-27 and James 1:27 and consider the questions below:
- How would you explain “the image of God” in your own words? How does this truth shape how you view others and yourself? Does it specifically expose any sin or unbelief in your life?
- James 1:27 highlights how Christians are called to care for the most vulnerable among us. How can the conviction that all humans are made in the image of God lead you to care the most vulnerable, especially the unborn?
