Most people's difficulties with Christianity are emotional rather than intellectual. Christianity sounds sensible and even appealing, yet we hold back because of our fears. In this series, we will explain how such fears can be addressed and how other people with similar concerns have managed to overcome them

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

One major obstacle that stops many of us from accepting Christianity is the fear that it would introduce conflict into our closest relationships. That’s why today’s message will explain not only how we can manage this fear, but also why taking that first step of faith yourself is potentially the best thing you could do for your loved ones.

 

1. How have you or any members of your family been saved through the actions and words of other family members?

 

2. Who are some family members or loved ones who have yet to become Christians? What can you do intentionally to help them to take small steps towards that goal?

 

3. Do you know anyone who holds back from following Christ because they fear the objections of loved ones? How will you encourage them to overcome this obstacle?

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

Some people feel that they are too sinful and unworthy to be accepted by a holy God. At first sight, this appears to be a response of humility, but it actually reveals a wrong understanding of both self as well as God. In this message, we will learn why we feel this way, and how the gospel completely addresses this objection.

​1. To what extent has familiarity with Christianity eroded your sense of unworthiness before a holy God? In what ways do you observe yourself and others failing to regard God as the utterly righteous and awesome being that he is?

 

2. Why are we so prone to relying on works righteousness (rather than grace righteousness)? In what ways do you find works righteousness creeping into your thoughts and actions?

 

3. According to the sermon, what are some beneficial effects of receiving God’s forgiveness? Are you experiencing these benefits in your life?
