Africa!

| Group Study |

 

Watch the short clips below, and answer the questions associated with each.  You can do this alone - but it's always more fun with a group of friends!

Be sure to read/study the scriptures in each section.  God's word is the standard by which we measure all our thoughts and ideas.

 

1 | AFRICA!  AFRICA!

Dr. John Easter of Africa's Hope does a great job of explaining how size of the African continent.  Let's have a little fun with our knowledge of this vast continent.  How many countries of the 54 can your group name?

Click the link below when you're ready to test your knowledge.  Leaders: Give the number of correct answers in your weekly report.  The group with the most will get a special treat!

2 | IMAGO DEI

Each human is made in the image of God.  His likeness is stamped into our DNA, and as Christians we are reminded to look at every person as a cherished creation.

But this doesn't always happen.  Why not?  As forgiven humans ourselves, shouldn't it be easy for us to love all the rest of humanity?  Why do we find it hard to be fully engaged in people's lives?

scripture: Genesis 1:26-27, James 3:9-10

 

3 | PRAY, GIVE, GO

John's story is one of devotion, sacrifice, bravery, and redemption.  Throughout the centuries, Christian men and women have given up their money, their future, their security, even their lives for the sake of the gospel.

What do you think motivates them?  Do you imagine sharing the gospel in Africa is harder or easier than sharing it in the US?  What do you think your role is in the Great Commission?

scripture: Matthew 19:25-30, Philippians 3:7-10
