Study Questions for 3/13/2018

Please read our passage from Sunday and be prepared to answer the following questions:

  1. If someone asked you the question: "How can you know that you are a child of God?", how would you answer?
  2. Paul says that our new position as "children of God" has made us heirs of God (and joint heirs with Jesus Christ).  Being an heir implies an inheritance that is now ours.  What is our inheritance as children of God? Support your answer from Scripture.

Topics for 03/06/18

Romans 8:1-11

We cannot live with two worldviews. On Sunday we studied the different mindsets of living for the flesh or living by the Spirit. 

  1. Think of a Biblical character who tried to straddle the fence and be prepared to discuss the effects on his/her life.
  2. Verse 9 says "Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him." Where else is this truth taught?
  3. Verse 11 says "If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you." Pastor Drew said that he thinks that when He gives life to our mortal bodies, it means spiritual strength for living in the here and now. Do you agree? Could it mean that when you die, God will raise your body as He raised Jesus? If so, why?
