  • What was your main takeaway from the sermon?
  • Did the Holy Spirit lead you into any situations this week where you had an opportunity to put your takeaway(s) into practice?
  • What impact did those opportunities have on you spiritually?

Discussion Questions:

  • The world has drastically changed in the last 20 years – making the response to the gospel more severe (some people will mock the notion of Christianity’s legitimacy). What are some hopeful and helpful ways that we can minister in this cultural environment?
  • We were made by God and for God. How should that help us determine our identity? What is it like for a person who never realizes this massive truth?
  • The cross and resurrection of Christ are the central events in human history. Why is it important to allow those pivotal events to shape our understanding of personal identity?
  • How does the gospel help us confidently face the judgment of Christ (a day of accounting)?
  • Paul was willing to risk his life to tell people the news of Christ. Why do you think this is so important to him? In what ways can you imagine your life better reflecting the importance of telling others the good news?
