2019 Session 3 - Enlarging Our Hearts and Engaging God's Mission
God is a God of enemy love. Who are your enemies? (Think: whose receiving of God’s mercy makes you bristle?) How can God’s grace help you to enlarge your heart toward them?
Do you have the language of grace but lack the life of grace? (Think: do you tend to apply grace to yourself but Karma to others, wanting a God who shares your prejudice rather than shatters your prejudice?) How can you more deeply experience the transforming grace of God?
Jonah ends in tension; the story waits to be finished. Take some time to write out your ending. What kind of neighbor do you want to become? 10 years from now? 6 months from now? Today? Jesus’ mission is neighbor redemption. How is he specifically calling you to engage this mission?
