going deeper

As you spend time reflecting on this week's sermon, use the questions below to go a bit deeper. Pray for our services each week, that God would open our ears to hear and hearts to receive as we endeavor to make Jesus irresistible to our community again.

  • What makes a skeptic?

    Week 1 - August 5, 2018 

    1. Read 1 Peter 3:13-17 below. Compare and contrast our modern approach to influencing people with the message of Jesus. 
    2. What do you see as being the greatest obstacle we are faced with as a community as we strive to make Jesus irresistible again?
    3. What would make our community here at Central a place that turns skeptics into followers?
    Now, who will want to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don't worry or be afraid of their threats. Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. But do this in a gentle and respectful way. Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ. Remember, it is better to suffer for doing good, if that is what God wants, than to suffer for doing wrong! — 1 Pe 3:13-17
