The Bloody Truth

Acts 20:28

Questions to help you dig deeper into the message:

What ministered to you most from this message?

Read Acts 20:28. Why is Paul so concerned with HOW the overseers do their jobs? Why should we be concerned with how we treat others in the Church?

Why do you think the ‘Blood of Jesus’ is mentioned 5 times more than the ‘Death’ of Jesus, and 3 times more than the ‘Cross’ of Jesus? What does this tell us about its importance?

Read John 6:53-56. How does Jesus’ blood provide nourishment to sustain us?

Read Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 9:14, and 1 John 1:7. How can partaking of communion provide cleansing that invigorates us? What would it look like for a person to be ‘invigorated’ in their Christian life?

Read 1 Corinthians 15:55-57. How does Jesus’ blood prevent infections that can destroy us?

If you have time: Read Romans 5:18-19. Discuss how Jesus’ perfect blood AND His obedience affects you and I today.
