Sermon Response

Justification VS. Moralism

The Text:

Read: Romans 3:9-12, Isaiah 57:20, Colossians 2:20-23, Ephesians 2:8-9

The Path of disciplined grace is the narrow road on which God’s grace and man’s efforts (the spiritual disciplines) intersect to best allow God to transform the inner person to look more like Jesus.

Discuss:

  1. A disciple is someone who does what Jesus did, teaches what Jesus taught, and represents Jesus in his absence. Where do you need to grow as a disciple?

  2. Which of the inward spiritual disciplines do you engage in the most? Which one do you fail to do? (Meditation, Prayer, Study, Fasting)

  3. What is a good definition of a person who has fallen into the heresy of Justification (antinomianism)?

  4. Do you tend to lean more toward the Justification or Moralism side of the path of disciplined grace? Explain.

Respond:

1. What do you need to do this week to position yourself on the path of disciplined grace so as to allow God to transform you?

Prayer

Lord gives us the grace and discipline to look more like you!
