Below is a brief review of our meeting on Sunday, followed by projection from the message, and a few discussion questions for Community Group or personal study this week.

Josh welcomed all with announcements and Kevin Khoffie read Colossians 1:15-20.

We sang All Creatures of Our God and King and By Faith.

Ruth Vides prayed a prayer of confession and Mariana Beltran translated the prayer into English.

Chris read Colossians 1:21-23 and we sang Hope of the World and Let Your Kingdom Come.

Matthew prayed and Charlene Morgan read 1 John 2:28-3:3, the text for this week’s message “Children of God” that Matthew preached as the next in our current series, Assured of SalvationTo listen to the message again, visit our Audio Resources page.

After the message, we sang The Father’s Love and Will Hagen shared a word of prophecy.

Josh closed our time together with a benediction.


Projection and other scriptures from the message:

+ Proverbs 6:6-11
+ Matthew 24:42-44
+ 1 John 5:13

The return of Christ compels us to be who we are and become what we will be.

1) Embrace our new identity by being who we are
+ Romans 5:6-8
+ Galatians 4:4-6
+ Romans 11:29
+ John 3:3

“The child exhibits the parent’s character because he shares the parent’s nature. A person’s righteousness is thus the evidence of his new birth, not the cause or condition of it.” – John Stott

2) Hope in our future glory by becoming what we will be
+ 2 Corinthians 3:17-18
+ 2 Corintians 4:6


Discussion Questions:

1. Where would you say you currently place the bulk of your identity? Your family? Job? Social status? Political viewpoints?

2. 1 John teaches that all those who are saved are children of God. Why is it difficult to embrace this identity in full? Have you experienced a craving to identify with something that you have personally achieved instead?

3. Matthew taught that sin feels natural – however, when we become children of God, our entire nature changes to reflect that of our Heavenly Father’s. Is this a change that you have experienced? How can you affirm such a change in yourself? In others?

4. Why must we make a daily choice to obey God and His word? What is the ultimate hope that children of God have when it comes to our minds and our bodies?

5. Is there anything in your life right now that makes such an obedience particularly difficult?
