(Next Week, Trusting the Lord thru the Difficulty of Service)

Sermon Discussion Questions:
1) How has God shown Himself to be trustworthy, in Scripture, and in your own life, personally?
2) What does it mean for us to trust the Lord, give some biblical examples, and some from your own life? What often prevents us from trusting God?
3) How does submission to the Lord relate to our “freedom in Christ”? What is necessary in our lives to maintain our submission?
4) Christ was the Lord’s servant, from 1Cor.6:19-20 & Rom.6:17–18 what does it mean for us to: “not be our own”, “we are bought with a price”?
Paul said: whatever you do, do all to God’s glory, which is the Servants Purpose. 5) How do we practically live our lives to glorify God?
The Great Message of the Gospel
• God is holy, righteous, just and good. o Exodus.15:11, Leviticus.11:44
• God designed & created us to experience un-hindered joy and delight, by glorifying Him, thru obedience to His Word.
o Isaiah.43:7, Psalm.16:11
• Every single one of us has disobeyed God and failed to glorify Him,
o Ecclesiastes.7:20, Romans.3:23

need to be saved from God’s wrath, and we cannot save ourselves. o Ezekiel.18:4, 1Corinthians.6:9-10, Romans.6:23

in our place, to fully placate and exhaust God’s wrath against us. o 2Corinthians.5:21, Romans.3:21-26
