Confront Sin in Others | Galatians 5:19-6:5
Aaron Gray | August 19, 2018
- Who are the people in your life who you trust to give you insight, feedback, and loving correction? How can you learn to listen and trust them more?
- Look at Proverbs 6:16-19, Luke 20:47, and 1 John 5:16-17. What does it mean that different sin is to be treated with a different degree of seriousness? How can we grow in wisdom around this idea?
- How does the gospel free us to both give and receive correction in love? How has Jesus shown us his love and grace even when we were still sinners?
- Have you found yourself upset by non-Christians not behaving in godly ways even though they don’t have faith in Jesus? How can your message to them be less “behave” and more of grace?
- Pray that God would help you to receive correction well, and that it would shape how you share correction with others.
- Pray that God would help you to show the non-Christians in your life that the gospel is not simply a message of “behave and act right.”
- Go to someone who loves you and has your best interest in mind and ask them this question: “what is one thing that I can take to Jesus for repentance, growth, and change?” Consider asking more than one person, but no more than three.
