  • Question 01
    Describe a time where you felt out of place or different. How did you respond or how did it make you feel?
  • Question 02
    Why might a new Christian feel different or out of place? Have you experienced any similar feelings or occurrences?
  • Question 03
    Just as there are different countries or kingdoms with different cultures and practices, what makes the Kingdom of God different than the rest of the world? Consider reading Ephesians 4:1-7; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, 18-26; and Galatians 5:22-23; John 13:35.
  • Question 04
    What is the goal and purpose of the Kingdom of God?
  • Question 05
    If those who are in Christ do not belong in this world, where do they belong and where is their home?
  • Exercise 01
    Do you know of someone who is looking for belonging, a home, or just feels out of place? Maybe it’s a visitor at church, someone you work or go to school with, or a stranger you walk by who is constantly ignored. Everyone is welcome in God’s Kingdom. Write out a commitment to your study group that you will reach out and invite them into the Kingdom of God. Pray for one another (and the souls you touch), encourage one another, and continue to keep each other accountable for the goals you set. Follow up in a week or two to see how things are going.
  • Exercise 02
    Interview someone from a different culture. What did they have to do to integrate into their current culture? How is that like becoming a part of Christ’s Kingdom?
