罪惡帶來分裂、福音帶來合一 Sin Brings Division; The Gospel Brings Unity

這是一個因為罪惡分裂的世代,罪使人與神,人與人都隔絕了; 但福音卻使這個已經分裂的情況恢復,福音是這個分裂的世界唯一的良藥,我們更是福音的使者,要傳揚這個使人與神,人與人和好的福音。

Only the Gospel has the power to remove the division that separates us from God and our fellow men. In this message, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung urges us to be messengers of the gospel that unites and reconciles man to God and man to his fellow men.

Read Today’s Scripture Passage

Life Group Discussion Guide

1. Start with a prayer

2. Engage one another (15-30 mins)

  • Share a time when you had a conflict with another person. What caused the conflict?

3. Engage the heart (15-20 mins)

  • Have you reconciled? If yes, how was it? If not, what hinders you to reconcile?

4. Engage the mind (15-20 mins)

  • Read the passage. In vv. 11-12, what does it mean that a person is “uncircumcised” (may refer to Genesis 17:1-14 to know more about the covenant of circumcision)? What was the status of the uncircumcised?
  • How did Jesus unite the Jews and the Gentiles? How did He become our peace? What is the importance of being reconciled to God and to others?
  • From vv.11-12 to vv. 19-22. What changed when Christ died on the cross? What does it mean for you that you are a new humanity in Christ?

5. Engage the hands (15-20 mins)

  • As a new humanity, God dwells in you. How has your life changed? What specific steps can you take starting this week towards being transformed into Christlikeness?

6. Engage with God in prayer (20-30 mins)

  • Thank God for:
    • Bringing Jesus to us as our Peace, that through Jesus we are reconciled back to God.
    • Making us a new humanity as members of God’s household.
    • His dwelling in us.
  • Pray for God’s power in us and for us to allow the Spirit to transform us into Christlikeness and to live in unity as God’s children.
