Core Training - Grace
Love is truth wrapped in grace.
What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
How has your perspective on truth and grace been shaped by the way you experienced the church and/or Christians in the past?
Read: Galatians 3:27; Colossians 3:12-14
Paul likens being baptized to being “clothed with Christ.” Why do you think he used that imagery? What are the implications of it for His followers?
Which of the “clothes” Paul mentions in Colossians 3:12 resonates with you the most? Why?
Verse 13 tells us to “bear with one another” (NIV) or “make allowances for each other” (NLT). What are some practical ways we can do that?
It is a subtle distinction, but how can we become a church that isn’t just known for being against sin, but for being for sinners?
Prayer: Ask God to help you start from a place of grace when you encounter people whose actions run counter to the truth of His Word.
