LIVING WITH PURPOSE
A New Compass 

Jeremiah 29:4-14
Being an exile in the city means that we avoid assimilation and engage lovingly, just like Jesus.
God gives His people instructions for how to live as they are taken into exile in Babylon, thousands of years ago. The principles that God gives His people still apply for us today. We too are in a land that is not our own. We too are called to seek the welfare of the city to which we are sent.

Application Questions

  1. What are ways that you feel the temptation to assimilate to the city?
  2. What are ways that you feel the pull to make this world your home?
  3. How do you feel tempted to retreat from the city? How can you lovingly engage?
  4. What would it look like in your life to seek the welfare of the city? Do you pray for the city?
  5. How is a compass different than a map? Why does that matter?
  6. How does the example of Jesus help guide your loving engagement?
