Luke 12:11–12 Jesus says …

Community Group Questions

QUESTION 1:

Each member of the group should read one (quietly on their own) of the following proclamations of the gospel from among these passages (Acts 2:22ff; Acts 3:12ff; Acts 4:8ff; Acts 5:30ff; Acts 10:39ff; Acts 13:26ff; Acts 17:29ff). Then share with the group one or two things you noticed from your reading. Pay special attention to these three themes: The death and resurrection of Jesus, the witness of the apostles, and the forgiveness of sin.

QUESTION 2:

On Sunday Jeremiah suggested that each of these proclamations are both “God-centered” and “audience-conscious”. In what ways are the passage you read God–centered? What is the difference between being audience-conscious and audience-centered?

QUESTION 3:

The proclamation of the gospel in Acts always elicits a response. Recall a time the gospel has been proclaimed to you and share with the group how you responded at that time and what impact that response has had in your life.

QUESTION 4:

In ever case, the gospel is proclaimed with boldness. This boldness is serves as the bookends of the ministry of Paul in Acts (see Acts 9:27; 28:30–31). How might you proclaim the gospel with boldness in your present context or in a way that God is calling you to?
