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.
