Return to the Reflection Scripture. We hope you are keeping it before you everyday of this week’s journey.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Philippians 2:4 ESV
How does looking to the interests of others as well as you do your own move you to come alongside someone?
Are you willing to look after the lives of those in your world as well as you do your own? Why or why not?
What is God revealing about Himself in the Reflection Scripture? what is He revealing about you?
Read 1Peter 2:4-6
What are we considered to be when we come to Jesus? What is He building with us? Why?
Imagine a stone house. How do the stones interact with one another? What is the effect of one stone on the next?
What spiritual picture of church do you see in the stone house? How do these living stones interact with one another? What are the acceptable spiritual sacrifices which keep it standing strong?
Read John 14:1-4
How many houses does the Father have? How many rooms? What is Jesus doing right now?
What is the implication of the Father’s one house and the living stones in the 1Peter passage?
How do you feel about sharing a single house with all Believers? one stone next to another?
What role does coming alongside to encourage have in preparing us for eternity? in building and strengthening His church for His glory?
