MENTORING CORNER/STUDY GUIDE: “NO LONGER SLAVES,”   17.05.19

PLEASE READ/ANSWER WITH A VIEW TO APPLYING TO YOURSELF, RATHER THAN TO OTHERS. WE CAN ONLY TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CHANGES WE NEED TO MAKE WITHIN OUR OWN SELF, NOT THAT OF OTHERS.

  1. What have you been taught about “death of self”? How does it line up with these Scriptures?
  2. Were those who purported to be believers, really converted into believers, if they continue living in sin?”  How do you understand

    Ephesians 2:6

    this?

  3. What are some of the gaps you can see in what the Believing Community has been largely taught in the area of being dead with Christ/dying to sin? What are some of the gaps in Christian teachings on SURRENDER?
  4. In what ways do you understand these concepts (i.e., being dead to self/sin; surrender) differently? What things do you, yourself, need to attend to?
  5. Connect the dots between being dead to self/sin, and the choice to walk in surrender/in freedom? What things do you, yourself, need to attend to, in this regard?
  6. From this study, what things might you see differently regarding teachings, or assumptions made, regarding the concept of GRACE?
  7. In what way will the learnings from this study cause alterations in your walk?
  8. In what ways do you experience the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to no longer serve sin?
  9. How do you understand the fact that many who call themselves Christians are knowingly walking in sin in certain aspect/areas of their lives?
