3 John - In a Manner Worthy of God: Supporting Truth to the Edges of the World

Discussion Questions

  1. What is something God has been teaching you through your Bible reading this week? 
     
  2. What is one truth or “take-away” from the sermon that you found particularly challenging/convicting/helpful?
     
  3. Read 3 John. Compare the instructions in 3 John 5-8 with that of 2 John 7-11. Based on these two passages, what responsibilites do we have in regards to partnering with others for the gospel?
     
  4. What evidences of sinful pride do we see in the example of Diotrephes in 3 John 9-10? Consider each of Diotrephes’ actions. How would doing the inverse of these actions cultivate attitudes of humility and build unity in the church? 
     
  5. How are 3 John 9-10 and 13-14 good examples to imitate in admonishing or encouraging other believers? (See also Matt. 18:15)
     
  6. What are ways that you and/or your community group can be more involved in supporting gospel workers?
