Next Step Questions

Jesus tells us his yoke is easy and his burden is light. Be honest – have you experienced or viewed the Christian life as a light burden, or have you experienced more of the heaviness of obligation?

Aristotle famously said “We are what we repeatedly do.” Do you have any regular, consistent practices that help you be with Jesus? Or have you been more sporadic?

Read Philippians 2:12-13. We can work out our faith not to get to God or impress him, but because he’s already at work in us. How is a partnership with God for our growth different?
