Wednesday [BE>DO]:
Think about this week’s questions for group discussion.
  1. Read Romans 3:21-26 together. In what two ways are we instructed that there is no distinction for all people (note especially v. 23 & 24). How should this change the way we live toward others?
  2. How does the practice of gospel hospitality breakdown our prejudices and aid in putting to death the sin of partiality? How does it do these things in Peter’s life in this week’s passage?
  3. Why is the work we see God doing in the heart of Peter and his “circumcised” friends in v. 44-48 so important?  Have you experienced such a work in your own heart when you have worshipped or fellowshipped with believers from other cultures or backgrounds?
Thursday [DO]:
In a journal, spend some time considering the following:
  1. What insights have you had while internalizing this week’s passage?
  2. How specifically will you seek to apply its truths in your home/workplace/life in general?
