Paul writes in Romans 12:2, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed…”
Simply put… you are either being conformed, or you are being transformed. There’s no other option.
God wants us to change, but in His economy, the only kind of change that matters is the kind that comes from the “INSIDE Out”.Fill-in Notes
Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your group or branch off with additional questions as discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.
- How would you explain to an unbeliever the difference between renewing your commitment to God repeatedly because you are not certain of your salvation vs. the daily renewal of a commitment that was made once but lasts forever?
- God calls us to radical abandonment by being transformed and not conformed. What are some practical questions that we can ask ourselves to assess our current state? What are some deliberate steps that we can take to ensure that we are becoming the former and not the latter?
- What areas of your life do you believe you’ve confirmed to the world?
- When we think about transformation, Romans 12:1 says let it happen, where in 2 Corinthians 3:18 it is happening. Where are you at as a believer? Meditate and discuss with your group how you become changed into the same image by the Spirit of the Lord.
- Read Colossians 3:2. How does this verse and Romans 12:2 tell us about the importance our minds play in our walks with God? What role has your mind played in your faith?
- What stands out from the list of qualities of being transformed vs. conformed? Is there anything convicting from this list? What has the Holy Spirit prompted you to change today?
- Is there anything the Holy Spirit is prompting you to share with your group or accountability partner? Take action today!
- Where are you reading in the Bible this week and what is God revealing to you?
- How can you be praying for your group this week? How can they be praying for you?
