Next Steps from Today’s Message
- I will rehearse the gospel message with a spouse or friend, in order to ensure that I can direct others to God through the sacrifice of Christ.
- I will devote 5 minutes each morning this week to reflecting on what my actions as a Christian communicate to a watching world.
- I will make plans to explore my unique role and responsibilities in regard to how I can best facilitate worship among the people of God.
Home Church Questions
- Is there anything that was new, memorable, or meaningful from this week’s message? Is there an immediate application you know you need to make?
- Which Bible translation do you use on a regular basis? Why do you prefer it? Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the various English Bible translations.
- Our priestly role dictates we must be able to direct others to God through the sacrifice of Christ. What illustrations or Scripture references help you to communicate the gospel clearly? Will someone demonstrate their preferred approach for the group?
- Have you ever thought about what your actions in worship communicate to others? How might an understanding of this prompt greater participation?
- Our priestly role dictates we must be able to assure people of God’s forgiveness when they seek it on the basis of Christ’s shed blood. What illustrations or Scripture references help you to communicate God’s forgiveness?
- Have you ever struggled to believe God has truly forgiven you? How might it have helped if someone was available to hear your confession, and then encourage you with the truth of God’s grace in forgiveness? Why don’t most Christians regularly confess their sins to one another, despite the Bible’s teaching on the subject (cf. James 5:16)?
- Biblical praise is a binding responsibility for the believer, and is different from thanksgiving in that God is the subject of the sentence. How can you make praise a regular part of your Christian life? Discuss when, where, and how praise could infiltrate your life.
- What is the one thing that has been the most impactful for you from Leviticus 1-7?
