Main Idea: We are kingdom builders, and kingdom builders don’t build alone.
Introduction: This week, young adults at every campus shared a message about how God called them and how God is using them to build His kingdom. They invited us all to own our part in the ministry of God’s kingdom: we are all called to share the gospel and tell others about Christ.
Discussion Starter: There are seasons in the life of a Christ follower. What season are you in now? Are you just hearing the gospel for the first time? Have you been pursuing God for years? Are you struggling through a season of doubt?
Primary Scriptures: Hebrews 11:13-16
- Read Hebrews 11:13-16. Look at verse 13. Do you feel like a stranger or a foreigner on the earth? Or do you feel at home? What makes you feel this way?
- The beginning of verse 13 says that “These all died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar” (ESV). How did they keep the faith? Have you “seen” things God has promised from afar? How have you experienced that? How do you keep believing in eternity when you can’t see it with your eyes?
- Are you inspired by any story in particular in the “Hall of Faith” as Hebrews 11 is called? Or have you been led or inspired in faith by someone in your lifetime?
Discovery Bible Method: For deeper study, as an alternative to the questions above, read Hebrews 11:13-16. and use the Discovery Bible Method to explore the passage.
Take some time to pray earnestly for one another. Pray for good spiritual direction from mentors, and pray that you all can be mentors and disciple others. Pray for fellow builders to help you build God’s kingdom.
