old testament

Rooted in Gospel Love - "Gospel for the Shamed" (Paul Kim - Genesis 3:6-10, John 4:1-26)

Reflection Questions

1.  On a scale of 1 to 10, how much would you say shame/fear of embarrassment affects your life?
2.  What would happen if you felt completely accepted for all the good and bad, beautiful and ugly?  What would your life look like?
3.  How do you feel about the statements, “Daddy always loves you, even when you’re messy,” “Don’t worry about the mailman”?
4.  We can get a taste of how it feels to be completely loved and accepted by God through our relationships with others.  What would happen if our church became a place where people felt safe, secure, accepted, that there is no fear of rejection, no need to cover/hide?  What would this look like?
