STUDY GUIDE FOR 9-9-18

Imagine a New Life!

 Think about life: 

  • Think back to your childhood, your children or grandchildren. What do kids imagine and how do kids use their imagination?
  • Did you have a big dream as a child or youth? What happened to it?
  • Why do you think adults tend to imagine less than children?
  • What kind of things happen in people’s lives that seem to cause them to stop imagining that God has a new life in Christ for them?

Digging Deeper into Scripture:  

  • Read 2 Cor. 5:16-18a – So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view.  How differently we know him know!  This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person.  The old life is gone; a new life has begun!  And all of this is a gift from God. 
    • What does Paul mean when he said that at one time they thought of Jesus from a human point of view? What changed Paul’s mind that Jesus was not just human?
    • What does it mean to belong to Christ? How does that make one a new person?
