In this week’s message we were challenged to reflect on the fact that our status as children of God is given to us through a cosmic-sized adoption that is solely because of his grace. Does this truth affect your day-to-day life? Is it something you consider? What are some ways that you could remind yourself of this and other truths throughout the day and week?
One of the countercultural ideas in this week’s message was that as children of God, we are under his authority. We are not our own and our life isn’t ours to live however we see fit. Talk with your group about how radically different this thought is from our cultural norms. In what ways are you successfully living this reality and in what ways are you not?
