CoGro Discussion Qs (The Risk of Faith 1)
Has believing the gospel ever feel like a risk to you? If so, why?

Sometimes, knowing that we're right can make us feel superior. But this can also damage our witness. How do we present the truth humbly? (What Scriptures can you point to that will help you here?)
