After watching each recording, we encourage you to answer the questions provided. If you’re listening on your own, these questions are still beneficial to work through. However, we still encourage you to share your responses with someone that could provide you accountability and encouragement.
Victory Over Sin (10-13-20)
1—What is your response to the following? “Anytime we give into temptation we have absolutely been fooled. Fooled into thinking that whatever we give into will satisfy us. Fooled into thinking that our justification for the sin will hold up before God. Fooled into thinking that there won’t be a consequence, whether sooner or later.”
2—How has your outlook on sin and temptation been challenged or changed based on things you’ve heard tonight?
3—How have you used scripture to help you battle against temptations in your own life?
4—What other things have helped you in your struggle with temptations? What advice might you offer to those who feel as if they can’t overcome the temptations in their own lives?

4—Realizing each of the benefits mentioned tonight are great, which one stands out to you as being particularly impactful? Why?
Faith Alone (9-15-20)
1—The concept of faith can often seem abstract, and a little hard to explain or comprehend. So, how would you DEFINE faith? And what illustrations or explanations have you heard that have helped you or others better UNDERSTAND what faith is?
2—The Jews struggled with the idea of faith alone being what provided right standing with God. Because of that they put too much emphasis on their heritage, the law, and religious ceremonies to help them feel as if they could earn it. How are we similar? What ways do people (Christians or non-Christians) try to earn God’s favor instead of trusting in faith alone?
3—What next step do you need to take in regard to what you’ve heard tonight? (Sift through your own questions or hesitancies toward faith in Jesus? Accept Jesus as Savior? Take specific steps to grow in your faith? Be willing to share my faith with others? Or something else?)
A Lot to be Thankful For (9-8-20)
