Q2: Do you know of an example of someone dying for another person
(other than Jesus)?
Q3: Read James 1:2-4. Share about a time you persevered through a
hardship. How did that time of perseverance change you?
Q4: Read Romans 5:6-10 and John 15:9-17. In light of God’s love and
Jesus’ sacrifice for us, how are we called to act towards others?
Q5: Read Acts 2:32-33. God love has been “poured out” to us through the
Holy Spirit. What recent evidence of the Spirit have you seen in your life?
Q6: Consider your life before Christ. Spend time in prayer thanking God
that He has saved you from your sin and reconciled you to Him.
Q7: Is there an area of your life that Jesus is knocking on asking you to
open the door of repentance? Prayerfully consider your need for
forgiveness.
