Week 5 - 4.5.2020

It's not about what you do or don't do. It's about what Jesus did.

John 19:30
When He had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.

Mark 15:37–39
With a loud cry, Jesus breathed His last. The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how He died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!”

1 John 2:2
He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

Discussion Questions:

1. What are some experiences in life that made you feel like you had to “measure up,” or live up to a certain standard?

2. Do you ever view the Christian life as a list of dos and don'ts? How does that affect the way you act and live?

3. This week, we learned that it’s not about what you do or don’t do; it’s about what Jesus did. What does that mean for your life? Does that sound hard to believe?

4. What would your life look like if you stopped trying to earn salvation, and started accepting the free grace of God? How would that impact your attitude and your relationships?

5. What can our group do to help you believe that what Jesus did on the cross was sufficient enough for all of us?
