Use the following thoughts and questions to have one spiritual conversation. You can pick and choose, use them all or just allow the statement to be your guide. The emphasis shouldn’t be about having all the answers, but simply having a conversation.
Begin your conversation by asking about this statement:
Fulfilling God's mission requires unity in spirit, in objective, and in practice.
This statement is the biblical truth the student’s study was built around. Each week there will be one statement that ties the whole study together. These would be great statements to remember together. The hope is that thoughts and ideas will stem from these statements. You can also begin by sharing a thought of your own that you learned during your study of the same lesson. Ask what thoughts were surprising as the study was taught.
2. Thought From the Study Throughout Paul's letters, we find a strong emphasis on unity among believers. God's mission requires us to seek unity, and the gospel provides our objective and example of unity. To achieve this biblical unity, we must embrace both truth and grace as necessary foundations for unity among God's people.
Why is unity important for believers? What are some ways to build unity among believers?
