- Read Heb. 6:12, Heb. 13:7 and Phil. 3:17. What Christians have most influenced your life? What made them stand out to you? In what way are you imitating their faith and life? Have you told them the impact they have had on your life?
- Read Romans 1:16-17. How would you define the word, “gospel?” Why was Paul not ashamed of the gospel? Are you ever tempted to be ashamed of the gospel? If so, when and why?
- The Reformation preached Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone) - The Bible alone is our highest authority. Why is it so important that we hold the Bible as the only authority for our faith and practice? What are some examples of beliefs that are not taught in Scripture but are widely believed?
- The Reformation proclaimed Sola Fide (“faith alone”): We are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ. What would you say to someone who believed they were a Christian because they were trying to be the best person they could be?
