TODAY WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO JOIN US THROUGH THESE SIMPLE STEPS AS WE WORSHIP & JOURNEY TOGETHER.

  • READ the scripture below:

Ephesians 4:1-16

STEP 2

WORSHIP

We know worship is expressed in many ways. A great expression of worship is through song. Take a moment to visit this week's playlist!

STEP 4 

DISCUSSION

Share these questions in your household or with others from OBC over the phone

- John used 3 key words when discussing the importance of knowing others & being known. Love, support & accountability – what should each look like in our context?

 

- John discusses that each & every voice matters. Something that makes us unique as Baptists. Discuss this statement; 'You & your contribution to the body of Christ is essential.'

- Whose stories & testimony (aside from your own) have really had an impact on you?

- Ephesians 4 gives us a pretty detailed account around the expectations of Christian living. Discuss how biblical & spiritual maturity is likely to come about through unity.

STEP 5
MISSION & PRAYER

This week, pray for those you consider your small group, those who you know & feel known by.

Pick a Baptist or/& OBC ministry & take time to learn about what they are doing & pray for them.

Discern what the Lord is asking of you as a participant in the Kingdom call, as a member of the body of Christ, what impact is he calling on from you this week?
