- We have now learned over the last two weeks about the Message and the Mission we all have. Do you think it is possible to accept one without the other (the message without the mission or vice versa)?
- “On the next Sabbath almost the whole city gathered to hear the word of the Lord” (Acts 13:44). Is there some way that you can think of that the word of the Lord is spread or could be spread today? Who should you turn to if someone rejects the word of the Lord?
- Upon seeing the crowds in the city who gathered to hear the word of the Lord, the Jews became very jealous. How might jealousy negatively affect the work that is spreading the Word? Is this still an issue today?
- As we just heard in Acts 13:49-50, Paul and Barnabas faced plenty of rejection, to which they simply went on their merry way. In what ways do you personally “shake the dust” from your feet after an experience of rejection? Has there ever been a time in your life that something that felt like rejection was actually a breakthrough?
Who can you uniquely impact with your message?
