We serve King Jesus now by calling all people to trust and obey Him and inspiring His people to serve Him.
This week, we will see another important way to serve our King: by working hard to mature His church.
Please take a few minutes to read through this week's text and answer the questions as we prepare our minds for worship.
“Christ we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all His energy that He powerfully works within me.”
1) What is the goal of this toil and struggle?
2) How does proclaiming Christ accomplish the goal of maturing our Christian brother or sister?
3) What role does warning one another of spiritual danger play in accomplishing maturity?
4) Why is teaching one another beyond basic beliefs essential for reaching maturity?
