CoGro Discussion Questions #3

“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.” (Galatians 4:4-7)

  1. Jesus said that whoever commits a sin is a slave to sin. Does sinning feel like slavery? Or does it feel like freedom? Some of both?

  2. Paul says that when the law said, Do not covet, that’s when he began to covet. How does it make you feel when someone tells you what to do? What does that reveal about your heart?

  3. In the sermon, the pastor said “Jesus imprisoned himself to the law and its condemnation, so that we could be redeemed from the curse of the law.” Why is it so hard for us to believe that we are not condemned?

  4. In the sermon, the pastor wrote, “In Christ, you are no longer what you’ve done; you are how much you are loved.” What does that mean? How might that change the way we live our lives? How might it change the way we treat others?

  5. Christine Caine’s life is a dramatic example of the power of adoption. How does her story impact your own sense of being a child of God? What does it mean that “He calls us: MINE,” as she said?
