Finding Life, Learning to Live, Living to Serve

Smith Grove Livestream

Discussion Questions:

  • What is the difference between regretful confession and true repentance?
  • How are some church attenders similar to the Jews who counted on family heritage for salvation?
  • Why was Jesus baptized if He had no sin?

Pray Together:

Read 1 Peter 1:3-5 and craft a prayer of thanksgiving for God being our salvation. Focus on the reality of our salvation being completed by Him and not us, we cannot save ourselves.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

1 Peter 1:3-5

Gospel Connection:

Consider John’s approach of declaring the coming of Jesus. What should we learn from John about how to share the Gospel? How do you share the gospel now? What changes need to be made to your approach to declaring that Jesus has come to save?
