God is amazingly good God is amazingly good Romans 8:26-301. When we are weak the  Spirit intercedes for us2. God is working all things for our good 3. God has predestined us to follow him   Ephesians 1:4    1 timothy 2:4    2 Peter 3:94. God has called us to follow him (His effectual calling)    Acts 16:14    Acts 9:17-18Questions:How is your relationship with God right now?  Are you worried that he is angry with you? When was the last time something really bad happened to you?  Do you realize that in that moment the Holy Spirit was most likely praying for you? How does that make you feel?Are there any situations in your life where you are struggling to trust that God is working for your good?Has God called you to Himself?  What does it mean for your walk with Jesus that He has justified and glorified you and He sees you as that right now? How do these truths change how you live?
The Groaning and Glory The Groaning and GloryRomans 8:16-251. This Groaning is Universal 2. This Groaning is a Consequence 3.  This Groaning is Personal      A. BODIES WITHOUT THE BADNESS     B. A NEW WORLD ______________________What part of glory stirs you with the most excitement: redeemed bodies or a redeemed creative order? Why? When someone who is not a follower of Jesus groans about the brokenness of the world, how do you respond to them? Why? Have you ever experienced homesickness for your eternal home? When is it the most intense? What specific things usually influence Christians into becoming bad hopers?
Glorious Reminders From The Holy Spirit Glorious Reminders From The Holy SpiritRomans 8:12-17 1. A New Identity 2. A New Intimacy 3. A New Inheritance MENTAL WORSHIPWho do you know that truly has intimate relationship with the Father? What could you imitate about them? What seasons of your life does prayer tend to be the most natural? How so?Is there any part of your Christian life where the spirit of slavery is prevails over the spirit of adoption? If so, how so? Throughout Scripture, hope is illustrated as a helmet and an anchor. Why do you think that is?
THE LIFE OF THE FILLED THE LIFE OF THE FILLED Passage: Romans 8:1-11 1. FILLED PEOPLE ARE FREE PEOPLE    A. THE POSITION IS PERFECT (v. 1)   B. THE WORK IS DONE (v. 2-4)2. FILLED PEOPLE ASK HIGHER QUESTIONS3. FILLED PEOPLE HAVE LIFE__________________________QUESTIONS: Do you really believe you’re as approved of by the Father as Jesus is? If not, how would your life change if you did? When do you most feel the flaming darts of Satan? In what ways could you start hiding behind the truth of Romans 8:1? When you have no pressing responsibilities, where does your mind consistently drift towards? What questions are leading your life? Do they sound like they are from the flesh or from the Spirit? In specific ways should the joy of those filled with the Spirit differ from the joy of people of other religions?
The Power of Knowing, Part 2 The Power of Knowing, Part 21. We can know freedom from sin, v. 18forgiveness…freedom…fullnessEveryone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God&apos;s seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God. By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.                    -I John 3:4-10The problem with habitual sin biblically speaking…a) violates the law of Godb) nullifies the work of Christc) grieves the Holy Spirit“He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”                  -Colossians 1:13-14domain- abilityKingdom- accomplishment2. We can know a biblical worldview, v. 19Two things to notice here…a) “We are from God…” b) “…and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.&quot;“All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”                    -2 Corinthians 5:18-213. We can know what is true, v. 20-21“When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”                   -John 17:1-3 Mental worship…What do you find comforting about God?If God were to give you a one sentence warning of what you should be on guard for, what would that sentence say?Are you comfortable with God making His appeal through you? When is the last time you shared the Gospel with someone?In what area would you like God to give you understanding today?
The Power of Knowing, Part 1 The Power of Knowing, Part 11. We can know that we have the life of eternity in us, v. 13Three realities Christians should experience...joy- “to make our joy completeholiness- “so that you will not sin”certainty- “so that you make know that you have eternal life” Three main reasons Christians do not experience certainty are…uncertainty/doubt about their conversion experienceongoing baggagelack of biblical knowledge and experience2. We can know that God answers our prayers, v. 14-17“And this is the confidence we have towards him…”Confidence is mentioned in relation to three realities…a) the second comingb) the Judgementc) prayerConfidence is a freedom in speaking, unreservedness in speech; a free and fearless confidence, cheerful courage, boldness, assurance. Questions from the text…a) Does that mean we get whatever we want?b) Why does it take so long? c) What is the sin unto death? 1) sin not leading to death- this is any sin that a Christian commits“Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.”                -Galatians 6:1-2 2) sin that leads to death- this is the sin of the false teachers/secessionists“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”             -John 14:6“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”             -Acts 4:12“ For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.”             -I Timothy 2:5-6Biblical examples of sin unto death which results in physical death…a) Numbers 25- high minded disregard for God’s commandsb) Acts 5- lying to the Holy SpiritMental worship… Do you believe God tolerates you or enjoys you? Confidence was mentioned three times in I John in reference to the second coming, in reference to the Judgement and in reference to prayer. Do you have confidence in relation to these realities?How has your relationship to sin changed since you became a Christian? What is one question you want to ask as a result of today? Do people who struggle with sin find you helpful?
The Most Important Question You Will Ever Answer The Most Important Question You Will Ever AnswerI John 5:5-121. The witnesses, v. 6-8a) the water- Jesus’ baptism“Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”                           -Matthew 3:13-17b) the blood- Jesus’ crucifixion“And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many. When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!”                           -Matthew 27:50-561)   curtain of the temple was split from top to bottom, Mt. 27:512)   there was an earthquake, Mt. 27:513)   a number of OT saints were raised from the dead and appeared to many as the first fruits of the resurrection, Mt. 27:52-534)  Roman guards responded, “Truly this way the Son of God!” Mt. 27:54c) the Spirit2. The testimony, v. 9-103. The life, v. 11-12Zoe is the absolute fullness of life, both essential and ethical, which belongs to God. Life real and genuine, a life active and vigorous, devoted to God, blessed, in the portion even in this world of those who put their trust in Christ, but after the resurrection to be consummated by new experiences, among them a more perfect body and to last forever.Mental worship…Why is a “water only Gospel” not sufficient for us? Which is bigger in your life these days, the testimony of man or the testimony of God?How has your understanding of “eternal life” changed? Do you experience this Life we were talking about today?What will you pray as a result of what you heard today?
Birthmarks From Above Birthmarks From Above1 John 5:1-5 BELIEVING JESUS FOR WHO HE ISJohn 1:12-13Colossians 3:11Matthew 16:16Hebrews 7:252. A LOVE FOR GOD THE FATHER verses 1 -3A. “I love Jesus…(but I hate the church)”B. “I’m a believer, just not a follower” James 2:19 3. A FAITH THAT OVERCOMES THE WORLDJames 1:2-4__________________QUESTIONS:Which of the titles of Christ (Prophet, Priest, or King) gives you the most comfort? Which one gives you the most boldness? How so?With a faith and hope that looks past this world, how would that set us free to live in the world? As you think through your past week and next week, when do you most need a reminder of your new birth? Assurance leads to joy, hope, and confidence. Can you think of some other ways assurance of eternal life is beneficial to those who have been born again?How should you go about correcting someone who has been deceived into thinking they have been born again?SHOW LESS
