1. What tells you most about a person?
2. In what way or area do you feeling comfortable just "covering the material" of scripture and faith rather than doing it? Is there are that’s too scary or difficult for you to act on right now?
3. Chris made a statement that,"God comes alive through application". In what way have you experienced this yourself? Has God ever shown up for you when you were obedient and put your faith to practice?
4. Do you ever find yourself ’doing’ but trying with the wrong motives? Is it difficult not trying to gain God’s favor but trying to practice faith and trust instead?
5. Discuss the importance and implications of the picture that Jesus creates when he shares about the wise man building on rock and the foolish man building on sand. If you’d like, read Matt 7:24-27 together.
