Take a few moments to discuss or ponder on the following questions in relation to today's message.
1. Paul teaches us that we are “new creatures” in Christ and the word new would infer that there is something “not new” in our lives that requires change.
Quickly before discussing this with anyone else write three things that require change in your life.
Discuss at least one of these areas of your life that requires change with someone else.
When or have you ever talked to God about this area of your life?
What are some practical ways to bring change in this area?
2. The foundation to being “in Christ” is that God no longer holds our sins against us.
Are you holding someone hostage with you unforgiveness?
If you are holding a sin or situation against someone else take a moment and express that in words in the space provided below.
Confess that to God and become a reconciler by making room for the cross in this relationship. A conversation with that individual about reconciliation even if you can’t agree is a start in the best direction.
