Kingdom Come Week 5 – Discussion Questions


Every believer has become a new creature in Christ and is called by God to His service.


Probably in elementary school you learned the principle of metamorphosis: The caterpillar spins its cocoon, then breaks out of it as a butterfly. Can you think of other life-changing events?


Change usually happens in every life. In the history of our nation this change did not occur overnight. The first settlers arrived at Plymouth Rock in 1620. It was not until 1776 that colonists won their war for independence. Because these early Americans continued to stand firm in their quest for religious freedom, we today can worship freely and openly without fear of being arrested. Another type of metamorphosis occurs in every individual who seeks salvation. When we accept Jesus into our lives, we become new creatures. As Christians, each of us is called to serve God. Out of love for Jesus we answer that call and seek God’s direction.

8. Discover one’s spiritual gift through attending a class at Faith Promise. Try serving in a place that interests you. If you find that it’s not working, talk to the leader of that place, then try another. Be sure to let the leader know that you are attempting to find your place of service.
