"Surprised by Change" Pt. 2

[I am continuing to journal the study questions from Chapter 2 of John Ortberg's The Life You've Always Wanted. For some "look ahead" at the book, I have posted the chapter titles at the index link at the bottom.]

I will probably not get a chance to answer these before my meeting tonight and will go not fully prepared.

Additional Group Questions

  1. What are some of the signs that we are settling for pseudo-transformation rather than a true and life-changing work of God within us?

  2. Read Deuteronomy 6:1-9 and Matthew 22:37-40

  3. How do these passages fly in the face of boundary-marker spirituality and call us to authentic faith?

  4. On a scale from 1 to 10, 1 being completely legalistic and 10 loving God with your all and your neighbor as yourself, how do you rate yourself?

  5. The author wrote about the tendency to become judgemental and exclusive. What are some of the dangers if we let the poison of judgemental pride fill our hearts?
    • For us
    • For the church
    • For those outside the church
