Discuss Acts 11:19-26

  1. In what way did God comfort, challenge, or correct you today?
  2. What can you do to increase your joy in Jesus? Think about the biblical principle of sowing to the flesh or sowing to the Spirit (Galatians 6:8).
  3. Hebrews 10:34 talks about our brothers and sisters who “joyfully accepted the plundering of their property, since they knew they had a better possession and an abiding one.” What will it take for you to get to that place of joy in Jesus and his kingdom?
  4. Think about the way you talk about Jesus at school, at work, around your table, and with your neighbors. Do your words reflect His worth? How can you fuel your joy in Jesus?
  5. Safety and security in a tumultuous time brings great peace. How does Jesus’ rule over all of you bring peace? How can you share that peace with others?
  6. Where do you see the grace of God working in your family and in your church? How can you celebrate this grace?
  7. Who needs to be encouraged to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast heart? How can you encourage him/her?
  8. You must decrease and Jesus must increase in your home, at your work, at your school, and in your own mind. What practical things can you do to ensure you decrease and Jesus increases?
