Sunday Service Follow Up – 01.27.2019
This past Sunday we continued our three-part series called “Imago Dei and Our Day,” looking 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 the Parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10, Chris Sandoval from Servant Church in Barrio Logan helped us to see why racism – the individual and communal belief, along with the oppressive, unjust, and negligent actions based on the belief that one’s race is better than that of others – is a sin and breaks God’s heart.
Below you will find discussion questions that you can work through individually, as a family, or with other believers.
Discussion and Response Questions
Read Luke 10:25-37 and consider the questions below:
- Chris showed us how racism is a sin because it breaks the 1st and 2nd great commandments (Luke 10:27) and it seeks to limit the number of people we’re called to love. In what ways have you seen the sin of racism in your own life? Where does this passage expose sin or unbelief in your life?
- Jesus is calling us to be the type of people who move away from our comfort and toward need, who show mercy (Luke 10:37). How does the gospel compel us and help us to become this type of people?
