Free to Be Yourself
╬Paul and Peter have been called by God to take the gospel to different people groups. The same Gospel—"that it is by grace you have been saved through faith” (Eph 2:8) in Jesus Christ. Following the law does not save either Jews or Gentiles. When have you witnessed a time when someone suggested that salvation comes through “Jesus – plus”? Jesus – plus: behavior, appearance, rules, obedience, …? Discuss the possible confusion and detrimental effects of “Jesus – plus” thinking.
╬How can your own care for the poor become more committed and actionable? What more can we do together to fulfill this Gospel call?
