Mission Group Questions

As always, the questions are more suggestions then requirements but we (the leadership team) do ask that you always: (1) make sure that everyone understands the Biblical text & sermon; (2) understand the Gospel; (3) be looking for ways to share the Gospel with others; and (4) be thinking about ways to serve Jesus as a group in our community.


As the notes from the sermon indicated, Jesus accomplished a number of things on the cross: (1) Jesus “propitiated” God’s wrath or satisfied God’s righteous sense of justice by taking the punishment for our sins upon himself (Rom. 3:23-25; 5:9; 1 Thess. 1:9-10; Heb. 2:17; 1 John 2:2 and 4:10); (2) Jesus also “expiated” our sins or put them away so that we may be freed from guilt (see esp. 1 John 1:7-9 cf. Jer. 33:8); and (3) Jesus also “imputes his righteousness” or grants us His own legal standing before the Father so that we are judged by His life and not our own (2 Cor. 5:21).  Do you understand each of these actions?  Why do you think they were necessary? How could they change the way you approach your life?

Do you know people who define themselves by “all that they have done”? How can we reach them? Are you praying about any such person now? Could you explain the three actions discussed previously to them?

God bless!
