How is your group doing at restoring biblical community? Use these 7 questions in your group to help you answer that question. Ask your members to assess your group using a 1–5 scale, 1 being “not at all” and 5 being “100 percent.” Then discuss how you can grow as a group in each of these.

  • Are we devoted to one another in brotherly love? Do we honor one another above ourselves (Romans 12:10)?
  • Do we “carry each other’s burdens, and in this way … fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2)?
  • To what degree does our group “submit to one another out of reverence for Christ” (Ephesians 5:21)?
  • Do we “encourage one another daily” (Hebrews 3:13, emphasis added)?
  • Do we “admonish one another” (Colossians 3:16)?
  • Is our group a place where people can confess their sins to each other and pray for one another so that they can be healed (James 5:16)?
  • Most importantly, are we growing “to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ” (Ephesians 4:15)?
