Reflect Questions are designed to help you apply Sunday’s sermon to the everyday stuff of life. Prayerfully reflect on these questions throughout the week and consider discussing them with your home group.
This week’s questions:
- Read Genesis 1:26-27. What is the image of God and how does sin affect it?
- The gospel of expressive individualism tells us: “be yourself” and “you can do it.” The gospel of Jesus Christ tells us: “die to yourself” and “Jesus has finished it.” How are these two worldviews fundamentally opposed to one another, and why do you think it’s important for Christians to get this?
- Even many popular “Christian bestseller” books are less about the gospel of Jesus and more about the gospel of expressive individualism. Why do you think that worldview has such large appeal? What does Ephesians 4:11-16 tell us about how we can grow in Christian discernment and guard ourselves from this?
