3. [v.15] What is the “peace of Christ” and how is it different than the feeling of “being at peace?”

4. [v.15] How does “Christ’s rule” bring unity to the body of believers (that is, the church)?

5. [v.16] What is admonishment and how is it effectively used in the church?

6. [v.16] How is worship with gratitude, teaching in wisdom, and admonishment used to understand Christ’s word?

7. [v.16] How do these same practices (mentioned in question 6) shape us as believers?

8. [v.17] To do something “in the name of Christ” is to do so in accordance or in the same spirit as Christ did it.  What steps should we take, or what indicators are there telling us if something should be done in Christ’s name?
