TALK: Consider some of these ideas
For I am not ashamed of the gospel; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. (Romans 1:16)
- What sins do you consider unforgivable? What sins can be easily overlooked? Does God make a distinction between the two?
- What shames or embarrasses you about your life in faith? What would make that shame or embarrassment lessened?
- For the littles: Who in the world is most like you? Who is least like you? Jesus loves them both the same—and you, too!
PRAY: God, you have given us everything we need to understand and spread the good news of your salvation. Give us the enthusiasm of Paul for our mission in the world, and the compassion of Jesus, in whose name, we pray. Amen.
BLESS: May God remove your shame. Amen.
