Day 12: Christians Meeting Together

Take a day to pause and reflect on what you've learned over the last five days.

From the earliest days of the church, Christians shared life together in both large gatherings and small gatherings: “Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts [i.e. large gatherings as at worship]. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts [i.e. small gatherings like you’re doing today to discuss this week’s takeaways].” Acts 2:46

You don’t have to go to church to be a Christian, but, then again, “church” isn’t someplace you go. Church is God’s people gathered together. Your faith begs the question of community. When you’re a Christian, you want to go to church—you want to gather with your family in Christ to share faith. So let’s discuss the following with others. (As a reminder, if you're unable to meet with anyone right now, we invite you to journal through these things by yourself.)

  1. Which day’s reading and/or passage of Scripture was the most significant for you this week? Why?
  2. What have you learned about people (or yourself) in the past day’s readings and prayer times?
  3. What have you learned about God in the past day’s readings and prayer times?
  4. What changes in your life have you felt the Holy Spirit nudging you to make this week?
