Connect:

 

  • What couples or marriages do you most look up to and why?

 

Dig Deeper:  

 

Priscilla and Aquila are an example of a couple that was Christ-centered and Mission-driven. Read the following verses to gain some insight into this Godly marriage.

 

Read: Acts 18:1-4, 18-21, 24-26; Romans 16:3-4; 1 Cor. 16:19; 2 Timothy 4:19

 

 

  • What do we learn about Priscilla and Aquila from these verses?

 

 

  • How did Priscilla and Aquila use their jobs and resources to fulfill a greater, more unified mission?

 

 

  • How did they serve Jesus and the church together?

 

 

 

  • How were their roles different, but still focused on the same unified mission?

 

 

 

  • How is this couple different than what we might consider the “normal examples” of marriage we have around us?

 

 

  • How might Priscilla and Aquila provide us an example of a Christ-centered, mission-driven life?

 

 

Make It Personal:

 

  • How can you tell when a couple is unified in mission and “walking together?”

 

 

  • What do you think about the statement, “The foundation of a Godly marriage is not happiness. It is unity”? Why is happiness the wrong mission for a relationship?

 

 

  • On Sunday, Pastor Jason made the point, “What God seeks to unite, Satan schemes to divide.” What are some of the methods Satan uses to divide relationships?

 

 

  • Read Amos 3:3. Is it possible for two people in a relationship to have a healthy relationship without agreeing on the direction they should go?

 

 

  • What most accurately describes your relationship: no direction, one direction, or multiple directions?

 

 

  • What are the things you love? What are your passions? How could those become part of your mission?

 

 

  • In your relationships, how are you already mission-driven? How could you be more unified?

 

 

  • If you are single, how can you pursue the mission God has given you in the coming week?

 

 

  • Take a few moments to write down your mission in a sentence or two. If you’re in a serious relationship, write it together. Share your statement with your life group.

 

 

  • What is one take away or action you plan to make as a result of this week’s study?
