Questions for reflection and discussion
- Share your understanding of the “Holiness of God.” How can you grow to be more holy? (Read Hebrew 13:12; Acts 26:17-18; 1 John 1:7)
- God is more interested in your character than your comfort, God is more interested in making your life holy then he is making your life happy. How do these statements apply to your life?
- While we go through pains in life, what should we do? Discuss with your CG members how we can help each other be overcomers.
