  1. My past doesn’t define me
  2. My body will be perfect
  3. My greatest good is life with God 

Study

Romans 8

  1. Read v1-3. Why exactly can we have confidence that our sins truly are forgiven? 
  2. Read v18-25. When and how can we expect our bodies to be perfect? How then should we live and encourage one another now?
  3. Read v28-40. How do v28-30 assure us that life with Christ really is the best thing and completely secure? What different barriers in our minds or experiences are overcome in v31-39?
  4. Can you think of one or two practical ways as a group we can help one another enjoy the blessings of: 
    • Forgiveness of sins?
    • Perfect bodies to come?
    • Life with God forever?
  5. Are there one or two key lessons you would like to take away from this session or series as a whole? As you turn to prayer, think how to make sure we don’t lose or forget these.
