6/18 Discussion Questions

  1. How did God encourage, comfort, or convict you today?
  2. What did you hear today that challenges your thinking or living?
  3. Is the directing power of the Spirit available only to Christians (8:9)? Why or why not? (Romans, LifeChange, NavPress, 116)
  4. Since it is the Holy Spirit who gives power for service, how should we pray? How should our weakness and His strength shape our praying?
  5. Forgiveness by Christ and union with Christ can never be separated from the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit (see Romans 8:9b). What are some potential dangers of requiring a simple confession of Jesus as Lord for baptism and church membership without requiring evidence of the Holy Spirit’s indwelling presence?
  6. Where do you see the Holy Spirit leading and sanctifying you?
  7. If you are a parent, what does it mean to be grieved by one of your children? If a fire is burning brightly but is quenched, what happens? Are there any ways that you are grieving or quenching the Holy Spirit?
  8. Look back over the last few years of your life. Can you see a pattern of gradual growth in godliness? Explain where you see the Spirit of Christ working in you.
