- How has the Underdog series struck you so far? Which “underdog” have you most identified with? (i.e. David—the youngest brother--unrecognized; Jacob—the manipulator--too scarred; Gideon—the fearful and under resourced; Paul—too many skeletons in the closet). Any Biblical “underdogs” you’re hoping will be a part of this series?
- What part of your past are your LEAST proud of (be as general or specific as you feel comfortable with)? Which part of your past are you MOST proud of?
- Paul’s story included a “Damascus road experience”; that is, a dramatic conversion to Christianity. Share your conversion story. If you didn’t have a dramatic conversion experience (i.e. you grew up always believing in Jesus), share some important highlights or turning points in your faith journey.
- On Sunday, I said that Romans 1:16-17 was the passage in Romans that converted Martin Luther. Read this passage out loud (even if you’re in a group). What strikes you about it? Why is it so important that God’s righteousness was “revealed” and that we receive it “by faith—from first to last”.
- On Sunday, I said, “Your past will control your future, until you let your future in Jesus control your past.” Why is it so important that we “press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of us (Philippians 3)?” What disciplines in your life help you focus your eyes on Jesus and the glorious future he has for you rather than the past?
