Think With Sober Judgment

Romans 12:3-8   |   Sermon Resources   |   26 September 2021


Sermon Summary

Pastor Billy continues in the Romans 12 sermon series addressing this week how the mercies of God inform how we are to see ourselves. We will examine Paul’s call to see ourselves accurately and to devote ourselves fully.


Discussion Questions

  1. What is the danger of thinking too highly of yourself? Of thinking too lowly of yourself?
  2. What does this passage say about our faith (v.3a) and the body of Christ (v.3b) particularly as it relates to thinking of ourselves with sober judgment?
  3. How has the pandemic affected your being connected to the body of Christ? Is there any step you feel compelled to take to ensure you stay connected to the body?
  4. What spiritual gifts do you think you have been given?
  5. How does someone discover what their gifts are?
  6. Are you fully using your spiritual gifts? If not, what keeps you from doing so?
  7. What might happen in your life and in our church if all devoted ourselves to using the spiritual gifts God has given?


For the Family

    1. Memorize: Romans 12:1-2 “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
    2. Read: 1 Samuel 10:17-24 and discuss possible reasons why Saul was hiding in the baggage. Can you relate in anyway?
    3. Discuss: What spiritual gifts do you think you might have? How can you start using your gift?
