For each of the four studies, there is an article to read.

Here’s some questions to get you started.

  • What truth or point was a challenge to your current way of life?
  • What Bible passages did you consider the most and why?
  • What is your primary application point from this chapter?

Prayer (30 minutes)

  • In light of what you’ve discussed, pray for God’s enabling grace to follow Him.
  • Pray for each other’s struggles, desires, and growth.
  • Pray for people in your life who don’t know Jesus and for opportunities to speak with them.
