Discussion Starters

We hope these questions will help you consider (or discuss with others) what God is teaching you through this month’s study of His Word. 

  • Do you feel troubled by your sin? Why or why not?
  • Why do you think it is easier to spot when someone else has sinned than it is to recognize our own?
  • If God's law reveals what righteousness looks like, why can't it make us righteous?
  • What do you think Paul means in Romans 6:11 when he says that we should "count ourselves to be dead to sin?" How do we do this? 
  • We sometimes say that Christianity is not a matter of dos and don'ts. What do we mean by this? How should we understand the lists of commands we find in the New Testament?
  • In Philippians 3:10, Paul speaks of his desire to "know" Christ. What do you think he means by this? How do we "know" Christ?
  • Many people think of freedom as the liberty to do as they please. How does the Bible's view of freedom differ from this?
  • What are some of the ways you deal with temptation? What advice would you give to another believer who was struggling with temptation?
  • How would you describe someone who was spiritually mature? What are the most important marks of spiritual maturity?
  • How do grace and effort fit together in the Christian life?
  • How should we approach a fellow believer who has been overtaken by a sin?
  • What are the most important lessons you have learned about sin and righteousness from this study?
