SERIES - Simply Gosepel: Simply Profound   

There is something profoundly wonderful about experiencing or tasting something the way it was originally intended. In the Bible, we read the story of Cain and Abel and about the first murder that took place. Here, we see the plight of mankind played out in the first two children of Adam and Eve. Do we give in to our own way, or do we strive to do it God’s way? The hard part is that it ends up being seemingly disastrous with either decision. So, what’s the point? What’s the “Good” of the “Good News?”

This week’s #WholeLifeTakeAways:

  • Take a moment to read Romans 1-3 in your favorite, most understandable version. However, after each chapter, condense your thoughts about it by sharing the emotions that gripped you while you were reading. How did they change as you moved from one chapter to the other?


  • If the good news of Jesus is that we are all able to walk away from our shame, how does that change how we look at others in our life? How does it change the way I see those who I find it difficult to respect?


  • Paul tells us in Romans 3 that our partnership with Christ in sharing the gospel does not put us right with God, meaning that even our good intentions and good actions are not what make us righteous or saved - (Only Christ) – So, what should motivate us as the underlying reason to follow Christ and make disciples?


  • The Gospel shows us how God sees us and how he wants us to see ourselves. However, deep-rooted shame is usually held by three very strong resisters to God's grace. They are secrecy, silence, and judgment. Which one of those has shown to be a hindrance in your faith, in your journey of accepting God's redemption? What measures did you or might you take to find your way through it?
