1. How is sin spiritually comparable to leprosy?
◦ We are hopeless without Christ, we are spiritually like leprosy, sin is a disease, a spiritual disease that will kill us eternally.
◦ As ones living in sin, we are a danger to others. We will spread the disease, just like racism. It is highly contagious and deadly.
◦ Lepers lose their body parts one by one, if we allow sin into the church, the body of Christ will be fragmented and lose unity between each other.
2. What path of obedience is Jesus calling you to walk today?
◦ Walk on! Do not continue living, discouraged by the disease of sin but to walk knowing that you will be healed in a faithful response to Jesus’ promises.
◦ Personally, I’m to obey by living out my calling, to live it out with passion and conviction. To live an honest life, not one of deception and hypocrisy. Also,to be a man of prayer and a man of action rather than a man of words and ideas.
◦ If you’re not sure how to answer this question, start with the ones that Jesus has already called us to walk by: loving God, loving our neighbors, bearing one another’s burdens, forgiving our enemies, and making disciples of all nations teaching them all that he has commanded us.
3. What are some practical ways you can give greater thanks to God for all the work He is doing in you, through you, and around you?
◦ (In me) Thank you God for slowly teaching me the depth of the gospel. I can share with words or blogposts about the grace that God teaches me daily.
◦ (Through me) I can always remember to glorify God for how he works through me. Lord let me be like Moses, to credit all the power to you and that I would not be so arrogant to make your power make me arrogant.
◦ (Around me) Through praise and worship and thanksgiving, and through testifying and through participating.
◦ Take some time to think about how God is working in you, through you, and around you. Write down what you’re thankful for and how you have give greater thanks to God for his presence in your life!
