What does it take to Advance the Kingdom? - Colossians 1:24-2:3 - September 25, 2016

How do you react when you hear of Christian people suffering for the sake of the gospel?


Have you ever suffered for the gospel?


Do you pray for persecuted people often?  What do you think they need the most?


Have you ever received push-back from anyone while trying to do a good Christian work?  What happened?  Who did the pushing?


Why do you think some Christians seem to discourage other Christians from doing certain works for God?  Could they be of good intention but misguided?


Have you had conversations about Christ with non-Christians?  How did they respond?  Did that experience encourage you to share Christ more or less?


Please take time now to pray for courage to do the Kingdom work and for resilience during suffering if suffering comes to you.
