Session 4: Living in Community
“Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen” (1 Peter 4:8-11 ESV).
The goal of this session is to begin to help participants discover Jesus’ ability to take a divided people and bring them together as a community, one family. God gave us the Church, heaven’s holy community, to be united through Christ’s blood despite our individual differences. This study should help the participants see the need to develop spiritual relationships and grow spiritually together with all their neighbors.
