2/18/24


TEXT: ROMANS 8:12-17


Recap:

Because we are adopted into the family of God, we are free from fear. We no longer have to place our trust in our circumstances, but rather, we get to place our trust in God because He is a good, good Father.


BIG IDEA:  We are no longer slaves to fear. We are children of God.


Challenge:

1. Stop placing your trust in circumstances, start trusting God because He is a good Father. 


2. Cry out ABBA FATHER by living out a life based on Faith, not Fear.  


What have I done this week to feed my soul, feed others, and feed my flesh?


What stood out to you in the sermon this week?


What did God reveal to you in the Scriptures this week, maybe for the first time?


Scripture Study Tip 

What does it say, What does it mean, and How do I apply it to my daily life.


How does the reality of your true identity as a child of God spur you on to suffer for Christ? 


Share in your group one thing you will do this week to stir your affections for the Lord and to deepen your realization that you are a co-heir with Christ.


This week, spend time meditating on the glorious inheritance you will one day receive through your faith in Jesus Christ.


Mon/Tues


Read Romans 8:12-13


  1. What does verse 12 refer to?


2. How does the fact that we are indebted to the Spirit settle with you?


3. If we live by our own efforts, we will surely fail. How can we practically rely on the Holy Spirit daily?


Wed


Read Romans 8:14-15


4. If you are in Christ, you are considered a son or daughter through adoption. What does this tell us about the nature of God?


Thur/Fri


Read Romans 8:16-14


5. These verses provide an incredible promise! What does it mean to bear witness to something?


6. In what ways have you experienced the Holy Spirit ‘bearing witness’, or revealing, to your spirit about your adoption into the family of God?


7. The fact that we have the same inheritance as Jesus should give us hope. How does this hope push you through the suffering you face in this life?


8. Why do you think Paul adds in V17, “...provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.”?


Sat


Read Luke 9:23, 2 Timothy 3:12, Hebrews 12:6–7, 1 Peter 4:13. (Each of these verses points to the suffering that Christians are called to as we follow Christ.)


9. Where have you experienced suffering since you’ve been following Jesus? How has this suffering strengthened your faith and drawn you closer to Christ?


(Think of specific examples from your life.)


2/11/24


TEXT: ROMANS 8-11


Recap:

In week 17 of the Romans series, Pastor Nate teaches about condemnation and what it means to be free from it. We live alive and free because of what Jesus did and the love He poured out for our sake.


BIG IDEA:  The enemy says that you are condemned because of what you’ve done. The Father says that you are ALIVE and FREE because of what Jesus has done for you.

Challenge:

1. Ask if you have put your faith in you, or in what Christ has done for you? 


2. Respond to what God has for you, not to the voice of your past.  


What have I done this week to feed my soul, feed others, and feed my flesh?


What stood out to you in the sermon this week?


What did God reveal to you in the Scriptures this week, maybe for the first time?


Scripture Study Tip 

What does it say, What does it mean, and How do I apply it to my daily life.


Mon-Wed


Read Romans 8:1-4


  1. What do we learn about God’s character through these verses?


2. In Christ Jesus, there is now no condemnation. How have you let the sins of your past define you instead of living in this truth?


3. How do you walk in the freedom of not being condemned? How should that also change how you view your neighbor?


Thur-Sat


Read Romans 8:5-11


4. What do the descriptions of the Spirit show us about who God is?


5. How can we set our minds on the Spirit instead of setting our minds on the flesh?


6. Why was our nature hostile to God before we were in Christ?


7. What do we receive in surrender to Christ?


LifeGroup Activity:

Take a piece of paper and write out all of the sins that once defined you and that the enemy tries to hold against you. Take a minute to confess these to the Father, then draw a cross through the list. This symbolizes that none of those things matter anymore and they don’t define you because Jesus does. His work on the cross covers everything on that list. Make it a point to live in the freedom of that reality this week!
