The Paradox Church

Gospel Convos – Acts 4:23 – 31 – Spirit-Empowered Boldness

Here is this week’s Gospel Convos. Utilize this resource as a refresher on the sermon and as a primer to engage your City Group in deep, meaningful, gospel-centered conversations.

My hope is this weekly resource will help you reflect on Scripture throughout the week as well as equip and encourage you to help one another grow in your relationship with Jesus and invite others to know him too.

• Has anyone ever experienced persecution for believing the gospel or sharing it? How might persecution for sharing the gospel might press us deeper in to our community?

• The disciples prayer for boldness because they were aware of their fear. What fears come to mind as you think about sharing their gospel with coworkers, family members, or neighbors?
