Do The Homework
Click on the titles below to view the homework for each message. If you’ve not listened to the messages yet, we encourage to listen to them first to better understand the purpose of this homework.
Memorize 1 Peter 3:15
“Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it.”
Keep an eye out for and make a mental note of things you’re skeptical of. Share them with your family at dinner.
Research a question you’ve always had about God, the Bible, or another Christian topic.
Share with someone the question you researched and what you discovered.
Memorize Acts 2:42
“All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.”
Glance at the names of the books of the Bible and see if you know a general idea of what each one is about.
Read Acts 2:42-47 then answer the following questions:
- What does it say (what are the facts)?
- Why is this section important (what implications does it have to our lives)?
- Now what (what is something you need to do in light of these verses)?
Pick a book of the Bible you know little about but sounds interesting and set up a schedule to read through it.
Memorize Acts 2:42
“And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity…”
Invite someone from church (or accept someone’s invitation) to your/their home for dinner this coming weekend.
Pray about the time you’ll be spending together at dinner this weekend.
Plan a couple of spiritual topics to talk about. ie.
- “Tell about how you became a Christian.”
- “Describe how you found your way to MPC and what your experience has been.”
- “Why don’t we do things like this more often?”
Plan on someone to invite to dinner next weekend (or accept someone’s invitation) and repeat this week’s homework in preparation.
