     The source

 

     The souls

 

     The subject

 

THE POINT: THE GOSPEL IS FREEDOM

 

COMMUNITY MEDITATION

KNOW

  • What do you think Paul means when he says some will depart the faith?
  • Read John 8:31-38 and Romans 6:5-11. What does the freedom we have in Christ mean for our desires and pleasures?

FEEL

  • Does the teaching that people will leave the faith feel comforted, scared or something else? Why?
  • Do you know anyone who has walked away from Jesus? If so, how did that make you feel? If not, how do you think it would make you feel?
  • Do you tend toward legalism or denying yourself? If so, why?

LIVE

  • In what ways can you or your MC demonstrate the new life and freedom you have in Christ in the communities around us.
  • Where do you see your greatest need for changing the way you view God and how will that change the way you live?
  • How does the freedom you have in Christ change the way you view others who are suffering and struggling in this world?
