1. Was there a time when another believer lovingly appealed to you? How did you respond? How did you grow from that?
2. Even though we are free, adopted sons in Christ, why do we face the regular temptation of returning to enslavement? Enslaved to works-based acceptance? Enslaved to sin? How do we overcome that temptation?
3. Have you ever felt like another Christian’s enemy by telling them the truth (vs. 16)? Read Proverbs 28:23. What’s the difference between a loving truth teller and a selfish flatterer?
4. Is there another believer that you love too much to live as such? Would you pray silently for them now and for God to give you an opportunity to meet with them?
