- Paul was truly heart broken over the “lostness” of his fellow countrymen, the Israelites. How can you cultivate a heart of brokenness and compassion for lost people in your life?
- What initiatives or causes do we as the church often put above our pursuit of Jesus? How can putting and pursuing Jesus first help us to be motivated rightly to be involved in good initiatives and causes?
- What is wrong with being a “fanatic” or fan of Jesus? What things need to change in your life be a more committed “follower” of Jesus?
- In order for people to be saved, they must hear the Gospel. Do you believe that God can use you in this task? Why or why not? What steps can you take today to be the “beautiful feet” that carry the Gospel to someone this week?
