    The church is made up of many different races, ethnicities, and social classes. Despite these differences, what unites the church?
  • Question 06
    What blessings come from being a part of God’s family? Do you have any personal examples?
  • Question 07
    How would you define God’s church?
  • Exercise 01
    God’s church is illustrated multiple times as being a family. Make a list with your study group of qualities or traits found in biological families and qualities and traits of churches, then discuss the similarities and differences of both.
  • Exercise 02
    Read 1 Corinthians 1:10-11. Just as there is occasional quarreling within biological families, the same can be true inside the family of God. This is not because God made a mistake when He established His glorious church. Rather, the church is made up of people who make mistakes. Many people refuse to fellowship with God’s family citing instances of hypocrisy and dysfunction. With your study group, discuss how you might encourage the next person you see who refuses to come to church because of human imperfections. For further insight, keep reading 1 Corinthians to see how Paul handled the people’s problems within the church at Corinth.
