Title: Building on the Confession: Jesus is the Christ

Personal Reflection & Small Group Questions

Please complete this study on your own, then bring it to your small group for discussion.

Individual Reflection:

  1. Who do you say Jesus is in your own life? How does your understanding of Jesus as the Christ influence your daily decisions and actions?
  2. How can you actively align yourself with Jesus’ mission for His Church? Consider how you can align your actions and attitudes with Jesus’ purpose and work in building His Church.
  3. What steps can you take to participate in His mission?
  4. Spend time in prayer, asking Jesus to deepen your faith in His promise that the church will endure despite challenges and opposition.

Small Group Reflection:

  1. Who do people say Jesus is in your circles (friends, family, co-workers)?
  2. In what ways can we align our efforts with Jesus’ mission for His Church? How can we support and participate in His work? Brainstorm practical ways your small group can align with and support Jesus’ mission for His Church. How can each member actively participate in building up the Church?
  3. How can we encourage one another to live out our confession of Jesus in practical ways? To have a radiant faith. Share examples of how you’ve seen Christ work in each other’s lives.
