Creating Discipleship Conversations
On Sunday we celebrated our first Family Worship & Potluck gathering. It was a great moment for our church. It provided an opportunity for families to worship Jesus through singing, prayers, reading the Scriptures, and observing the tangible expression of our trust in Jesus, the Lord's Supper. My hope was to create opportunities for discipleship conversations between parents and children, spouses, and friends this week. I've provided several key points and questions to help start the conversation. I'm prayerful those conversations bear good fruit in the life of Doxa this week and the coming months.
Soli Deo Gloria,

What does the word “Gospel” mean? [i.e good news]
Why is it good news? [i.e. God saves sinners]

Do you see yourself as a sinner? In what ways? Examples [i.e. disobeying the rules, attitude of selfishness, etc.]
How can I be saved from my sin?
Read the second part of Psalm 111:2.
What happens in the life of those who study the great work of the Lord? [i.e. delight, joy]
How does the good news of the Gospel make you feel? What word best describes the emotion you feel about the truth of the God’s work in the Gospel? [i.e. grateful, happy, relieved, comfort]
