Discussion Questions

CG questions written by Erin Lee.

  1. Reread Hebrews 10:19-25. According to the author of Hebrews who is he referring to in his ‘let us’ statements? When applying this word to our lives who are we being encouraged to focus on being considerate towards?
  2. Tim Keller is quoted to say ‘An aggregation is like a bag of marbles but a congregation is like a cluster of grapes organically connected.’ How does this quote describe what the church is supposed to look like? Has your past church experiences looked more like marbles or grapes?
  3. In the sermon it was said that we are called to encounter God through each other and not merely next to each other. How have you personally encountered God through the congregation?
  4. In other versions of Scripture ‘stir up’ has been translated into ‘promote, provoke, spur and motivate.’ What are some ways you been stirred up by others to love and good works? How can you play a role in doing the same for those in your community?
  5. Why do you think the author of Hebrews calls us to not neglect meeting together? What are some ways we find ourselves discouraged from meeting with fellow believers? How can we overcome these discouragements?
  6. The church is exhorted to encourage one another. The greek word that was translated into ‘encourage’ can also mean to come along side, comfort, strength and console. What are some ways you can actively seek to ‘encourage’ the church? How can we make efforts to break barriers and encourage those who are beyond our ‘circle’ or ‘cliques’ at church? In what ways are you blessed by those who are different (culture, ethnicity, age group, life stage) than you? How can you and where you are in life be a blessing towards others?
  7. Read Philippians 2:1-11. In what ways does the gospel message illustrate in the most powerful way how Jesus has considered others before himself? How do we engage the the gospel message as we seek to consider others?
