GROWING DEEPER

1. What are indications that a Christian is not living beyond their conversion?

2. Why do Christians often continue to struggle in the ways of the flesh (e.g. worldly sins)?

3. From today’s message, how is it possible to live a set-apart joyful, peaceful, holy and pleasing life to God? What roadblocks are preventing you from receiving this experience?

4. Have you surrendered your all to follow Jesus? Read Romans 12:1-2. What changes need to occur for a deeper walk with Him? Pray for God to guide you towards those next steps.

In Christ,
Pastor Trevor
