Word Studies for the Week of March 17, 2019
March 17 ● Lent 2 – Discipleship 101: Faith and Transformation ● Philippians 3:17-4:1
What are some of the things you wish you could change in your life? How might God help you change them?
What are the earthly things in your life that can lead you away from healthy relationship with God and other people?
Paul speaks of the enemies of Christ as having their belly as God? What might this mean? How would you describe it to someone?
Paul asks the Philippians to remember their citizenship in heaven. How does remembering who we are and where we are from help keep us grounded?
Paul also asks us to fix our minds on Jesus who will come to save. Does knowing this give you hope? Why or why not?
Part of the hope that Paul outlines is Jesus transforming our humble bodies to be more like Christ. What might that look like for you?
What are the spiritual, emotional, and physical aspects of transformation that you might need in your life? Can you write down a prayer that expresses these things?
