What is guilt? What is conviction?
Individual – Brainstorm and write your answers in your journal.
Group – Brainstorm as a group.
Listen to “Will God forgive me of repetitive sins? by Tim Keller.
Individual – Listen and answer the questions, noting down your answers in your journal.
Group – Listen and discuss answers as a group. Write answers individually.
1. Does God forgive us for our repetitive sins? Why?
2. If repentance is partial, why does God still forgive?
3. Why do we sometimes repent, yet not change straight away?
Individual – Read the questions below and take the time you need to reflect on the answers before noting down your thoughts.
Group – Read the questions below and take the time you need to reflect on the answers before noting down your thoughts. In pairs, discuss your answers. Do group feedback at the end.
- What steps can you take to understand the root causes of the sin issues in your life?
- What truth about the Gospel do you need to cling on to when you engage in repetitive sin?
- How do you feel when the enemy accuses you of repetitive sin patterns? How do you feel when God convicts you?
Questions for Reflection
Individual / Group – Answer the following questions in a journal.
- In what situations or areas do you experience constant guilt feelings? (For instance, short-temper when you’re tired; forgetfulness regarding people’s birthdays; in relationships in which you feel you can’t correspond to other people’s expectations.)
- What biblical truths can you use when the enemy or other people accuse you? Note down specific Bible verses.
- How can you show the fruit of true repentance when the Holy Spirit convicts you? (For instance, confession to God and others; change of actions; acts of restitution.)
- How can you correct other believers biblically? Think of specific actions and words that will affirm both their identity in Christ, and their wrongful actions which they need to repent of.
Individual – Look through your answers to the Questions for Reflection. Is there anyone you need to seek for accountability?
Group – Look through your answers to the Questions for Reflection. Discuss in pairs. Share in the group.
