  • Week Two:Romans 2



    • In what ways am I judging God (that He is not enough)?
    • In what ways am I judging others rather than modeling the Spirit that leads us to repentance? 
    • What was a time where the stick (judgement) was brought upon me and how did I feel? 
    • What was a time where the fruit (grace/kindness leading to repentance) was brought to me and how did I feel?

  • Week Four: Romans 4


    • Why do you think Paul chooses to use Abraham as an example of justification by faith? 
    • Where does verse 3 come from? (Genesis 15:6)  What does it mean to be credited as righteous?  How can someone's faith make them be credited as righteous? How do we know Abraham believed God? In what ways did he demonstrate his faith? What then does it mean to "believe"?
    • List out some of the "leaps of faith" that Abraham took.  Are you willing to make the same leaps of faith and entrust yourself to God?  Do you believe the promises God makes to us?  Can you think of one area of your life right now that you need to take a leap of faith?

  • Week Five:

    Romans 5


    • Consider Abraham in Romans 4. What connection do you see between the progression in Romans 5:3-4 (trials>>perseverance>>character strengthened>>confident, joyful hope) and his extravagant faith (obedient trust)?  In what or whom was his faith?





    • In what specific area of your life could you choose to



    participate in this same

    progression with extravagant faith?




    • Read Romans 6:6-11.  What is the very reason that God sent Jesus to give us this free gift we don’t deserve—a right relationship with God?  How does that make you feel?





     

    • In what specific ways can you choose to REJOICE in your “wonderful new relationship with God”?  What does that look like in your everyday life?

  • Week Six:

    Romans 6

    1. How is the need to die to our self in order to have life connected in the death and resurrection of Jesus?

    2. Thinking back to Abram in Genesis being credited as righteous because of his belief, what do you think is the significance of Paul(v.11) using the same word 'consider/credit/reckon' in considering ourselves to be dead to the power of din and alive to God through Christ Jesus?

    3. What are the results of being a slave to sin compared to being a slave to righteousness?

    4. According to verse 17, where does real obedience come from? How does it play itself out in our every day lives?

  • Week Seven:

    Romans 7

    1. How do I/we understand our own sinfulness in the light of Jesus' sacrifice and gift of freedom? Does that understanding create rebellion in me/us that leads to death, or does it create humility that leads to life?

    2. In John 20, Mary doesn't recognize Jesus because she does not have an expectation that it could be him. When in our lives are we possibly not aware of the presence of Jesus because we do not have an expectation that He is there?

  • Week Eight:

    Romans 8

    1. There is no condemnation in Jesus, and if God is for us then who can be against us? In light of these truths, what does it do for you to know that nobody can bring an accusation(guilt of sin) and it be successful?

    2. What things work out for a believer's good? Does this verse mean nothing bad ever happens to a believer? What does it mean for love to be at the core of good? 

    3. Verse 31 says, "What, then shall we say in response to these things?"...What is your answer, how does that manifest in your own life?

  • Week Nine:

    Romans 9

    1. Consider Paul's statements about his fellow Jews who have rejected Christ in 9:1-3. How grieved are you about the people in your life who have rejected or not chosen Christ yet? Take some time to name a specific person and pray not only for them to recognize Jesus as their Savior, but also Jesus to help your heart to be stirred to the intensity Paul had for others to know Christ.

    2. What spiritual blessings that God has placed in our lives have WE missed out on because of our stubbornness t do things God's way? (verses 4-5, 31-32) How can we make sure we don't miss out on them?

    3. We believe that God chose ALL of us first. He made a way for ALL of us to know Him. How do you see the heart of love He has for us rejected in the design pattern in scripture that He chooses the unlikely, unloveable, unexpected? Who can be made right with Him by faith alone? 

    4. Discuss what it means for Christ to have already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. What was God after all the time?

Spiritual Disciplines to GROW

Once you come to know Jesus as the One Who has pursued a continuing LOVE relationship with you that is real and personal, growing spiritually is the next step.  Helping to facilitate spiritual formation (ongoing spiritual growth and maturity) is our privilege here at C4L.  


We call it discipleship. So did Jesus!  Jesus made a way for us to have LIFE and FREEDOM and it is our honor to help you FIND it and LIVE it through discipleship!  Below you will find some opportunities for you to do just that...GROW into FREE & CHANGED DISCIPLES of JESUS! 

  • Get Baptized

    Your decision to follow Jesus Christ as your personal Savior is the most important decision you have ever made in your life! After salvation, the Bible commands us to be baptized in water – like Jesus was. 

    Having been buried with Him in baptism,

    you also have been raised with Him through

    your faith in the power of God Who raised

    Him from the dead.  Colossians 2:12 NET


    More reasons to be baptized: 

    • Jesus told us to be baptized (Matthew 28:19)
    • Jesus was baptized (Matthew 3:13-17)
    • It represents what happened when you chose to make Jesus Lord of your life (Romans 6:1-11)

    We will schedule a baptism service anytime someone is interested in being baptized!  Contact us at info.connect4lifechurch.com.  

  • Read your Bible everyday to get to know Jesus better

    The Bible is God's very own words to us...He gave it to show us how we can have a continuing real and personal relationship with Him.  Reading it & meditating on it helps us to know God and how He works in our lives.  Making Bible reading a part of our daily life will help us grow in our faith and in godliness.  


    All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.

    2 Timothy 3:16-17 NLT

  • Talk, & Listen, to God in Prayer

    Prayer is simply a conversation with God.  Talking to Him, and listening to Him, just as you and I have conversations everyday. Prayer is one of the primary ways in which we interact with God. We share our thoughts, concerns, and allow space for Him to work in our lives. It’s a set-aside & ongoing time to talk to Him about anything that’s on our mind and receive his direction and encouragement.

    "...your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him! Pray like this:

    Our Father in heaven,
        may your name be kept holy.
    May your Kingdom come soon.
    May your will be done on earth,
        as it is in heaven.
    Give us today the food we need,
    and forgive us our sins,
        as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
    And don’t let us yield to temptation,
        but rescue us from the evil one."

    Matthew 6:9-13 NLT

  • Learn HOW to follow Jesus

    Learning how to follow Jesus is called discipleship.  It is important to be connected to people in your life who can help lead the way for you, just as you can for others...this is called being disciple-makers!  


    “From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”

    Ephesians 4:16

    “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

    Matthew 28:19-20

    “‘You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.’”

    John 15:16


    How can you be discipled and disciple others?
