Theme: Paying Most Careful Attention

Share Together

When have you ever been lost? (Road trip, hike, etc.) What happened, how did you feel, and how did you live to tell the tale?

Reflect Together

What impacted you most from the “Once For All” Growth Guide and Sunday gathering that you were challenged to put into practice this week? Of the various ways we can drift spiritually, which one spoke to you the most and why?

Read and Discuss Together: 

Hebrews 2:1-4

  • What is the writer saying we should pay the most attention to and why?
  • How can ignoring the message of salvation cause us to drift spiritually? When have you seen this happen? 

Hebrews 2:5-9

  • What is God’s value and role of mankind according to verses 7 and 8, especially it saying, “being made lower than angels but crowned with glory and honor and putting everything under their feet?” 
  • How does the way Jesus expresses his humanity without letting go of His deity matter to us?

Hebrews 2:14-18 

  • In what ways does Christ’s sacrifice on the cross break the power of death and the devil? 
  • How does the cross matter in breaking the bondage of slavery of fear for us and others we know?
  • How does Jesus, who has been fully human as our merciful and faithful high priest, make atonement (pay) for our sins?
  • What does it mean to you that in Christ’s suffering, he did not give in to temptation so that we would not drift? 
Pray Together:

Take time to share with your spiritual community the good things God is doing in your life, as well as the prayer requests you have.
