– At times, it is difficult to accept people who are different from you. Are there any people groups (different nationalities, ethnic group, ideological groups) that you may struggle to love?

– The Church is glorious and victorious in Christ in the end times. As she progresses towards that reality in our time today, we ought not be bystanders in the journey. How can you offer yourself to God’s purpose and call for the church?
– God has given His people victory over the sins of their lives. What are some ways that we as recipients of God’s grace can practically show our gratitude to Jesus? How can we do so as a community of believers?
